Toyota Joining British Touring Car Championship With Avensis

Toyota Joining British Touring Car Championship With Avensis

Toyota has continued to expand its current involvement in all forms of motorsports with the release of this Toyota Avensis Next Generation Touring Car concept rendering. Already under construction, Toyota plans on having GPR Motorsports in Buckingham debut this vehicle at the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship’s final round.

Knowing that new BTCC rules are on the horizon for 2011, GPR Motorsports is currently building the donor car and bodyshell towards the new 2011 specifications. And when it finally makes its debut on October 9-10th, James Thompson, a two-time BTCC double champion, will be behind the wheel.

We look forward to the debut of this 300-hp, FWD Avensis, as Toyota has been doing fairly exciting things in racing recently.
