Toyota Begins the Score Baja 1000 Race in their 2015 Toyota TRD Pro
Sometime today, the 2015 Toyota TRD Pro will begin one of the most grueling tests of vehicle endurance – the 47th Tecate SCORE Baja 1000. Over the next several days, the truck will race across the desert landscape with a team of Toyota engineers and drivers pushing the truck to its limits.
Here is a teaser video from Toyota on how it built the truck.
You can follow along with the race results at the official SCORE website here.
Whatever happens, it should be good entertainment for fans and for truck enthusiasts. Toyota has a lot riding on this event and a catastrophic mechanical issue could really hurt their reputation. On the flip side, finishing strong could do wonders for the new TRD Pro product line.
In the end, Toyota is surely going to learn something from this experience. Especially with their chief engineer Mike Sweers riding in the back. Hopefully, the ride isn’t too bumpy!
