Big support for UK’s first national GT86 meet

Toyota GT86 drivers got their heads together recently to organise the UK’s first national gathering for owners and fans of our award-winning rear-wheel drive sportscar.

Held in a central location in Walsall, West Midlands, owners came from far and wide to attend – one in particular from the Netherlands, while another pair drove 275 miles from Glasgow. The early start was no doubt a shock to the system for many used to enjoying a lie-in on a Saturday morning, but fuelled with coffee and enthusiasm the miles were despatched with relative ease. Many travelling in the same direction organised to meet at motorway service stations along the way, which usually led to the dramatic sight of a convoy of GT86s playing ‘follow the leader’ and ‘leapfrog’ to the destination.
