Toyota has been forced to delay the racing debut of its new LMP1 car following a crash during testing at Paul Ricard.
The Japanese manufacturer was scheduled to compete with its new TS030 HYBRID in the Six Hours of Spa on 5 May, but a crash at Paul Ricard last week has made Toyota change its plans.
Frenchman Nicolas Lapierre was driving the car, and the team did not specify the cause of the accident.
Toyota said the damage to the car was too severe to be repaired, and that a new monocoque cannot be produced and sufficiently tested to ensure reliability within the limited time available.
The team will now make its first racing appearance at the Le Mans 24 Hours in June.
"We are deeply saddened to announce this decision and our sympathies are with the drivers, team members and fans who have been anticipating the Spa race so eagerly," said Toyota racing president Yoshiaki Kinoshita.
"Since the accident we have looked into all options but unfortunately there is no alternative course of action open to us."
The team said it will now urgently prepare a new monocoque to resume testing ahead of Le Mans.
