Alonso, who has interest in the contesting the Le Mans 24 Hours race, completed 113 laps of the Bahrain International Circuit at the wheel of Toyota’s state-of-the-art hybrid LMP1 car, a total of 611 km.
“It was a great day,” said the Spaniard. “Testing an LMP1 car is always a nice thing for any racing driver because these cars are amazing to drive.
“They are very consistent throughout a stint which is a positive thing. I have wanted to test a car like this for a long time now and today I could achieve that so I am happy.”
Alonso had prepared for his test by visiting Toyota’s German factory in Cologne earlier in the week for a seat fitting and a simulator session.
He is already set to contest his first-ever endurance event next January, when he will participate in the famous Daytona 24 Hours sportscar race in Florida.
