Toyota will be sporting some nice hardware at this years Goodwood Festival of Speed, debuting the TS030 hybrid Le Mans car, the Dynojet Racing-prepared Toyota Avensis and Gazoo Racing LFA and GT86.

The Festival of Speed, as the name suggests, celebrates racing heritage and fast cars, both of which Toyota has to offer.

Toyota Racing driver Anthony Davidson is set to show off the TS030 hybrid racer on the famous hill course at Goodwood. The Dynojet Toyota Avensis will take some laps with BTCC driver Frank Wrathall behind the wheel. Wrathall raced to four podium finishes in his rookie season piloting the Aventis, and perfectly fits the Goodwood Festival of Speed’s chosen theme for 2012, “Young Guns – Born To Win.” The Gazoo Racing Lexus LFA and GT86 will be on hand for festival goers to appreciate and drool over.

To coincide with the cars release, Toyota will also display regular road going GT86’s to the public to drum up some hype and hopefully sales around the cars official UK release date.

We expect more announcements from Toyota in the coming weeks about additions to its Festival of Speed cars, as well as its famous faces.
