TOY­OTA GA­ZOO RAC­ING

Motor Sport News - - Wrc Preview: Teams -

Toy­ota has a rich and re­ward­ing his­tory in the World Rally Cham­pi­onship – but what came out of Cologne un­der the guid­ance of Ove An­der­s­son more than 17 years ago has lit­tle bear­ing on the Yaris WRC that re­turns the world’s big­gest car maker back to the fore­front of the sport. This Toy­ota is an all-fin­nish af­fair, ad­mit­tedly with an en­gine tuned by Cologne. Team prin­ci­pal Tommi Maki­nen has been run­ning around like a mad thing for the last year, but still, this is go­ing to be a very, very tough sea­son for a team run­ning a car which only turned a wheel for the first time in April last year.

Toy­ota’s new car is still in its de­vel­op­men­tal phase
