Toyota Motorsport has partnered with ORECA to provide support for its return to the Le Mans 24 Hours next year.
The French squad will assist the Japanese manufacturer as it prepares to return to the historic race with its own LMP1 car in 2012.
The partnership will begin in the coming weeks.
"It's a very big day for ORECA," said ORECA president Hugues de Chaunac. "To be chosen by Toyota Motorsport GmbH is a huge reward for the work we've done in recent years.
"ORECA has proven its worth at the highest level of endurance racing, winning the 12 Hours of Sebring in 2011 and finishing three straight times in the top 5 at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
"Thanks to its know-how, ORECA now has the opportunity to work with the biggest automobile manufacturer, and on a project that's particularly interesting.
"We are proud to support Toyota Motorsport GmbH in this challenge and we're looking forward to an exciting future."
