Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Toy­ota will en­ter the Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship this year with its Toy­ota GT86-CS R3.

The Tmg-built car will run in the BRC 3 cat­e­gory, with cur­rent plans to con­test the open­ing Mid Wales Stages with a view to com­pet­ing in fur­ther events in 2016.

The car will be run on events by Ral­lyprep, which has watched the de­vel­op­ment of the BRC closely ac­cord­ing to com­pany di­rec­tor Neil Yates.

“We’re de­lighted to be in­volved in bring­ing the Toy­ota GT86 CS-R3 to the BRC,” he said. “We have fol­lowed its de­vel­op­ment closely and know that it will of­fer in­cred­i­ble value and en­ter­tain­ment for driv­ers and spectators. This is a fab­u­lously de­signed and en­gi­neered car and I think it’s a per­fect fit for the new BRC.”

BRC 3 con­sists of cars such as the pop­u­lar Citroen DS 3 R3, but the Toy­ota is the first con­firmed en­try for the class.
