Toyota to unveil track plans next week
The Japanese manufacturer, who will enter the sport in 2002, said at a meeting that they intend to buy a major share in a circuit - rumored to be Fuji - and confirmed that their plans will become public on November 1.
Toyota will step their preparations in December when Finn Mika Salo, with Sauber in 2000, makes a permanent move to test full-time alongside Scot Allan McNish.
And Toyota want a circuit to be base themselves around, similar to Ferrari's Fiorano track at their Maranello base, and they also plan to host racing in there future.
