Toyota to compete in the Thailand 10-hour Endurance Race with Prius running on carbon-neutral fuel

Toyota Motor Corporation will participate in the IDEMITSU SUPER ENDURANCE SOURTHEAST ASIA TROPHY 2023 (Thailand 10-hour Endurance Race) to be held 22-23 December at Thailand's Chang International Circuit. Toyota will compete with a three-vehicle setup for ROOKIE Racing featuring the ORC ROOKIE GR86 CNF concept, a GR86 running on carbon-neutral fuel; the ORC ROOKIE GR Corolla H2 concept, a hydrogen-powered Corolla; and the CP ROOKIE PRIUS CNF-HEV GR concept, a newly added Prius HEV running on carbon-neutral fuel.

The new Prius competing in this year’s race has been developed based on a production vehicle, marking the first time that Toyota has competed with a production Prius HEV.

In addition, three of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing team Thailand’s vehicles—the Corolla, 86, and Yaris—will also run on carbon-neutral fuel.

The hydrogen-powered Corolla and the GR86 running on carbon-neutral fuel also competed in the 2022 Thailand 25H Endurance Race, where Toyota took on the challenge of refining the vehicles in a different environment than Japan. This time, in order to expand the multi-pathway approach even further, Toyota is adding an HEV, which the company says is one of the most effective options for achieving carbon neutrality in Asia and Thailand in particular, to its team setup.
