Toyota Racing are the 2014 drivers and manufacturers World Champions after a successful conclusion to the FIA World Endurance Championship season in the Six Hours of Sao Paulo, at Interlagos.
The eighth and final race of the season was a thrilling one with the PWR Performance Products cooled TS040 HYBRID of World Champions Anthony Davidson and Sebastien Buemi finishing second after a late safety car halted a potentially successful battle for victory.
But the focus was on the team result today with Toyota ending a 15 year wait for a title, following the 1999 World Rally Championship triumph.
Today’s result marks a historic moment in sportscar racing history as it is the first time a Japanese manufac-turer has won the World Endurance Championship in any of its guises since its inception in 1953.
Audi finished runner up in the manufacturers championship, 55 points behind Toyota. Both teams used PWR Performance Products throughout the season.
