Toyota Gazoo Racing will exhibit at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2019. A customized car event to be held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba Prefecture, Japan. Toyota Gazoo Racing aims through its motorsports activities to develop its cars and people with the goal of “making ever-better cars”. It participates in top category races including the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC). And FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC), as well as national rallies and races. The technologies and know-how it acquires through these activities are subsequently fed back into the development of new production vehicles.
Toyota Gazoo Racing selected “from past to future” as the theme for Tokyo Auto Salon 2019 and will feature our challenges. Exhibition vehicles include the Yaris WRC, the TS050 Hybrid, and the 2019Lexus LC Nurburgring-spec, all of which will compete in top-level races next year. A Supra vehicle that participated in past domestic races and the GR Supra Super GT Concept will also go on display.
Toyota Gazoo Racing WRT is a World Rally Championship (WRC) team based in Finland that serves as Toyota’s official factory team. Its team principal is four time World Drivers’ Champion Tommi Makinen. The team made its debut during the 2017 season, where it entered the Toyota Yaris WRC. The team is a separate entity from the Toyota Gazoo Racing team led by Toyota Motorsport GmbH that competes in the World Endurance Championship.
Toyota Motor Corporation regards motor sports activities as an important thing to bring customers “dreams” and “impression” of cars. And through FIA World Endurance Championship (TOYOTA Racing, LEXUS Racing, GAZOO Racing) WEC), SUPER GT in Japan. Nurburgring 24 Hour Endurance Race, etc. We have challenged various categories. Among them, GAZOO Racing had two Toyota / Altezza in 2007. And fought for the first time in Nürburgring 24 Hours race. We organized a team with mechanics chosen from each department within the group. And challenged the fight with the belief that “the road trained people and people trained the car”.
