TOKYO, March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Having joined the FIA World Endurance
Championship (WEC) in 2012 with its hybrid-powered prototype racers, TOYOTA
Racing created two new positions for enthusiastic candidates with the passion
and power to encourage the team to win the 2013 24 Hours of Le Mans race.

Personalities of candidates for the "COOL" category must possess a logical
mindset and a profound knowledge of the latest hybrid technologies.

Candidates for the "HOT" category should be passionate, nonverbal
communicators, with a deep, encouraging affection towards team members.

Over 100 enthusiastic applications were received following the recruitment
drive on social media. Applications came not only from France, the home of Le
Mans, but also from 30 countries around the world including the UK, Germany,
the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Brazil and Asian countries.

TOYOTA Racing driver Anthony Davidson said: "We are really happy and
encouraged by so much support for our team!"

Four candidates for both "COOL" and "HOT" categories have been selected as
finalists who will make their presentations to the team staff including the
drivers on March 18 on a special Google+ Hangouts.

Their presentations will be streamed live online. Two successful candidates
will be invited to the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in June, and will report on
the TOYOTA Racing team on location!
