JTEKT sponsor of the Toyota racing team

On Sunday 17th of June, Toyota won the 86th edition of Les 24 Heures du Mans

JTEKT, sponsor of the Toyota team congratulates the Toyota Gazoo Racing Team and is honoured to associate its name to this outstanding victory. On board of the hybrid Toyota TS050 (2018 version), team mates, Buemi, Nakajima and Alonso registered the first ever victory of the Japanese brand in the LMP1 (Le Mans Prototypes Hybrid) category.

Already world champion in 2014, Toyota has tried since almost 30 years to write its name to the world's most famous and very competitive race.

Toyota team never gave up to win this race despite some very cruel disillusion like in 2016, when, leading the race, the Toyota car stopped on the track in the last lap of the competition leaving the victory to  Porsche 919 hybrid. Now Toyota wrote what is probably the best page of its automobile racing history.

The rolling elements of the bearings are assembled between inner and outer rings with or without cage. With this structure, a smooth rolling motion can be realized during operation. The great advantages of rolling bearings are:

  • Low starting friction
  • Ability to support both radial and thrust load and high speed rotation
  • Easy to handle and maintained
  • Interchangeable and easy acquirement (global normalization & standardization)
  • Can operate in extreme environments (high and low temperatures)
  • Simple methods of grease lubrication
