David Floury has taken on the role of acting technical director of the Toyota Gazoo Racing WEC team in place of Pascal Vasselon. In a statement to PMW, a TGR spokesperson said, “Pascal Vasselon’s role in day-to-day operations is temporarily paused, although TGR-E expects him to resume an active role soon, contributing his knowledge and experience to enhance Toyota Gazoo Racing’s strategic approach to global motorsport.”
The team says it is looking to develop its next generation of leadership. The first step is an updated senior management team, led by president Masato Hirai, vice chairman Kazuki Nakajima and MD Rob Leupen.
The positions of John Litjens and Norio Aoki, respective project leaders of WEC and WRC Engine, are unchanged and both will now report to Floury. The team has stated that further information will be communicated after the conclusion of the process.
