After 2 years of mix fortunes in Le Mans Toyota decided to stop competing in endurance racing and switched their focus to F1. Toyota announced their plans to participate in F1 in 1999, and after extensive testing with their TF101 initial car, the team made their debut in 2002. The new team has grown from Toyota's long standing European Toyota Motorsport organisation, which has previously competed in the World Rally Championship and the 24 hours of Le Mans. Despite a point in their first ever race, Toyota F1 have not yet won a grand prix, their best finish so far being 2nd place in 2005, during which they achieved three podiums and a pole position, as well as finishing fourth in the world constructors' championship with 88 points.
Well, I started to fancy about motor racing ever since I was 10 year old boy. Remember watching Ayrton Senna won the 1988 F1 world championship in his first season driving that red & white McLaren – in those days we used to call it the Marlboro car. It had been my dream to collect my favorites miniatures race car ever since then. But it was impossible during those days without internet (online stores) connection. Plus limited choices offered at local toy shops. So, I leave it till end of last year (2007) where I started off collecting hotwheels basic car. Unfortunately I gave up the hunt after collecting the mini for some time. Then I bumped into 1/43 models collection short after that because it gives me better satisfaction - realistics. So up to date I have collected more than 200 pcs of models in 1:43 scale.
