The company building the GT4 variant of the Toyota GT86 has announced that a first example of the new racecar has been purchased by a “British buyer”.
Following the arrival of Mazda earlier this year the GT4 class of the Avon Tyres British GT Championship could feature another Japanese manufacturer in 2013 following the announcement of a GT4-spec Toyota GT86.
Drivers Chris and Stefan Hodgetts, Richard Meaden and Neil Primrose celebrated the end of the 2012 Britcar 24 Hours from the podium after scoring a top ten overall in the UK racing debut of the Toyota GT86.
Any 24 hour race in motorsport is tough. Entering the race with a brand new car makes it even tougher, but it’s this task that lies ahead of Toyota Team GB this weekend at Silverstone.
