TOYOTA Racing suffered a disappointment in the Six Hours of Shanghai, leaving China with a second place when a better result was within touching distance.

Alex Wurz and Nicolas Lapierre, in the #7 TS030 HYBRID, started from pole position and were firmly in the fight for victory when they lost valuable time due to a puncture in the final two hours. They recovered to finish second.

The #8 car of Anthony Davidson, Sébastien Buemi and Stéphane Sarrazin looked on course for victory. With 90 minutes remaining the #8 held a comfortable lead but a damaged suspension forced it into retirement.
