Not a surprise, but very cool. I fully expect toyota to take advantage of finally having a sports car in its stable.

It will hopefully be showing up in many professional series here soon, alms, grand am, etc...

Super taiku would serve it better, Super GT cars are very unrelated to their street going counterparts these days.

That'd be like asking someone to pull the street body of a gt-r out of this...

Yeah gt300 is a lot closer to reality than that gt500 class gtr. But I agree that super taikyu would be even better for technology trickle down.

GT300 isn't as extravagant, but this is the Toyota that runs in GT300



That's supposed to be a Coroola Axio GT... right. Pretty sure even the IS350 is mid-engined.

@4AGZE, of course I remember BTCC regs have recently got kinda weird with respect to their config and such.... lets see what happens.

Another outline.. any more info there?

Hmmm, I guess I'm not up to date on what happened with if the BTCC was going to go with the 'world engine' or not.

WTCC = 1.6T
BTCC = 2.0T
