By fielding three cars running on hydrogen and e-fuels, the Japanese giant has shown that it is possible to reduce the carbon footprint on the racetrack.
Toyota took part in the Idemitsu Super Endurance Souheast Asia Trophy race in Thailand. The event took place just before Christmas on the Chang circuit in Buriram and lasted 10 hours. The Japanese manufacturer lined up its hydrogen-powered H2 Corolla concept, as well as two other vehicles: the GR86 CNF and the Prius CNF HEV GR concept. CNF stands for carbon neutral fuel.
Competing under the colours of Rookie Racing, all three vehicles made it to the finish line.
Toyota also entered three other cars (a Corolla, an 86 and a Yaris) under the colours of Gazoo Racing Thailand, which also ran on e-fuels.
