A four-man team of Toyota enthusiasts is planning to mount a giant-killing assault on the UK’s toughest race, the Britcar 24 Hours, using a supercharged Toyota MR2 Roadster. Not only are they hoping for top honours in their class, but also have their sights set on a top-20 overall finish in the 1/2 October Silverstone enduro.
Toyota is to return as lead sponsor of the 2011 Toyota Sprint Series, confirming its commitment to grassroots motorsport. Running since 2008, the Sprint Series brings together current and classic Toyota models to compete against the clock at venues across the country.
The Toyota MR2 roadster has always been a head-turner but now its street impact is set to soar with a new body styling kit. The open top two-seater is given a more muscular, lower profile with the addition of the three-part kit, a dedicated Toyota accessory.
