Stolen from speedhunters....

Toyota has announced they will be making a return to the Le Mans 24 hour race.

Previously the Japanese giant showed plenty of promise when they competed in Le Mans with their famous GT-One prototype. The GT-One programme ran in 1998 and 1999, before the plug was pulled to make way for Toyota's entrance as a team in Formula 1.

The chassis will be constructed by Toyota Motorsport GmbH - their ex-F1 factory in Geneva - while the motor will be assembled by Toyota Motor Corporation in Japan. Although exact specifications of the 2012 prototype haven't been revealed, Toyota have announced that the car will be a hybrid.

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!
