Toyota has announced their TS030 HYBRID race car has been involved in an accident at the Paul Ricard circuit.

The company opted not to release pictures, but the accident severely damaged the team's only monocoque chassis. As a result, they have announced plans to withdraw from the Six Hours of Spa-Francorchamps because a replacement cannot be produced and tested fast enough.

While this is unfortunate, Toyota is hopeful that the car's first racing debut will take place at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June.
