Toyota Corolla from Speedworks Motorsport, equipped with a new hybrid system TOCA developed by Cosworth, which should be presented in the season 2022, hosted a two-day BTCC test in Snetterton in Norfolk under different weather conditions.
Managed the model of the driver developer Darren Turner.
The hybrid system will be integrated into the existing 2.0-liter drivetrain with a turbo using the installed on the gearbox of the motor 60 V. Activation of the hybrid mode will add about 40 HP to the power output of the car.
The head of British championship racing car class touring (BTCC) Alan Gow said that the test was “extremely proud moment for everyone involved in the BTCC and the TOCA Hybrid”.
“The BTCC was the first major series of cars, which confirmed its intention and the way of implementation of hybrid technology, and this, of course, another extremely important milestone in this area.
This is obviously only the beginning of an extensive program ahead to full implementation of hybrid technology in the BTCC in 2022, but we need to thank Cosworth, Speedworks and all participating technical partners for their professionalism, experience and efficiency,” said GOU.
