    They cheated with turbo restrictors on the works Celicas. They were caught in the Catalunya-Costa Brava and they were banned from the world championship in 1996. They returned in 1997 with the Corolla.

    P.S. Sorry for the previous posts.
    The problem with the ALMS is that it is much less followed than NASCAR and F1. Toyota is much more visible in NASCAR and F1 than they would be in the ALMS or at Le Mans. The only problem is however, that they are not actually winning anything in these two series.

    Yeah so they're more visible in their suckage, maybe if they did well in a series, no matter how small it might get them somewhere....

    Ah yes, but now you've forgotten to consider that they actually think that they can win by throwing money at the problem.
