No motor-sporting debut is easy but this weekend’s first outing for the reformed Team Toyota GB and its all-new Toyota GT86 production racer will be one of the hardest – straight in at the deep end in the UK’s toughest race, the Britcar 24 Hours at Silverstone, which gets under way on Saturday afternoon.
Fresh from success at Snetterton, where he claimed his best results of the BTCC season so far, Avensis racer Frank Wrathall leads Toyota’s independent drivers north of the border this weekend (25/26 August). Joining Dynojet Racing man Wrathall on the grid for the Knockhill rounds of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship will be fan favourite Paul O’Neill and his Speedworks Motorsport team-mate Adam Morgan.
Frank Wrathall raced his Dynojet Racing Toyota Avensis to a superb second place – equalling his best-ever BTCC result – at Snetterton this afternoon, the Lancashire man putting in a gutsy drive to chase multiple champion Jason Plato all the way to the chequered flag in the first race of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship’s Norfolk weekend.
