Toyota has vowed to donate a formula one car to the sport’s governing body.

A statement on Wednesday revealed that the Cologne based squad’s team principal, Tsutomu Tomita, will present the 2005 single seater – a TF105 – to the Paris based body on the occasion of the inaugural ‘FIA Institute Safety Summit’ at Paul Ricard later this month.

The F1 car, presented formally to Prof. Sid Watkins, “will be a tool for the FIA Institute’s international extrication training programme for medical and safety officials working in single seater racing,” the FIA said.

“The generous donation of an F1 car will help to enhance the training of motor sport safety officials,” Gerard Saillant, deputy president of the FIA Institute, said.

The summit will be also be attended by FIA president Max Mosley, FIA Institute president Watkins, and Williams’ Alex Wurz.
