What now for Toyota's facility?
Toyota spent a fortune setting up this facility in Cologne while most of the other f1 teams were in the UK.
Any word as to what happens to this facility moving forwards?
Will it remain a base for Toyota motorsport activities or will it be sold/leased?

I think it will remain as a base for Toyota's motorsport activities. A Le Mans return has long been mooted, and their previous Le Mans and WRC campaigns were based out of this facility (of course, before it was upgraded massively for their F1 entry).

Toyota is maintaining it I understand but on a smaller scale for other activity. What happens to engine facility though, who knows.WRC3 championship, WRC4 championship, WRC4 PCWRC, WRC4 ERC

The Toyota racing facility has been in Koln since ages, they might scale back the personnel but that's all that will happen, or maybe they will get into LM and than they will need them all again.Michael Schumacher The Best Ever F1 Driver
Everything I post is my own opinion and I\'ll always try to back it up!

Yes, remember that this was Toyota's motorsport base for rallying long before it was used for F1, and no doubt they will continue to use it for motorsport.Please 'like' our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/motorsportforums
