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.

FAQ

What is a spherical roller bearing?

Spherical roller bearings feature a large load rating and self-aligning capability. This type of bearing is suitable for low- or medium speed applications which involve heavy or impact loading. Spherical roller bearings are self-aligning, double-row, combination radial and thrust bearings. They use a spherical or crowned roller as the rolling element. The outer ring contains a spherical race which allows for some misalignment of the shaft and housing. Spherical roller bearings are unequalled in their capacity for high loads and tolerance to shock loads, but have limited speed capabilities. They perform consistently, even under conditions of extreme speed, application-specific stress, and marginal lubrication. The cage of a spherical roller bearing provides high dimensional accuracy and functionality. According to some estimates, spherical roller bearings have twice the running life of conventional bearings.
