Toyota building a hybrid to win Le Mans
Toyota hasn't yet formally committed and according to their head of R&D, Kazuo Okamoto, "We want to enter when we are confident of victory," And indeed, victory would be a sweet way to mark their return to the "greatest race in the world" (with apologies to the Daytona 500, the Gran Prix at Monaco and, of course, the Tour de France) after a 10 year absence. Of course, Toyota might get a shock from Peugeots combining of the two competing technologies but that's why they call it racing.
