Private racing drivers will soon get the chance to race a track version of the All New Toyota GR Supra.
Posted on 26 Nov 2019
TOYOTA GAZOO Racing will launch the GR Supra GT4, a race car for customer teams, in 2020 in response to public demand following the unveiling of the GR Supra GT4 Concept at the Geneva International Motor Show in March. Expectations rose with the participation of the All New Toyota GR Supra at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring in June.
Customer teams buy race versions of production vehicles and the GR Supra GT4 is based on the All New Toyota GR Supra—TOYOTA GAZOO Racing's first-ever global model released earlier this year—developed and produced by Toyota Motorsport.
The GT4 category - production race cars based on Grand Touring cars - is popular with private race teams around the world due to its low cost and ease of entry. GT4 cars are eligible to participate in a variety of races across the globe, including the Super Taikyu Series in Japan, the GT4 European Series and the VLN Endurance Championship Nürburgring in Europe, and the Michelin Pilot Challenge Series in the U.S.
The All New Toyota GR Supra already participates in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in North America and, from 2020, is scheduled to compete in the Super GT GT500 Class in Japan.
