Toyota ab 2017 in der WRC.

Und zwar von Köln aus:

“TOYOTA Motorsport GmbH (TMG) will return to the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) in 2017 with a car developed and built entirely at its Cologne technical centre.”

“Over the next two years TMG will continue its test programme with the Yaris WRC car to prepare for a full return to the series in which it won four drivers’ and three manufacturers’ World Championships in the 1990s.”

“Today’s news was announced by TOYOTA Motor Corporation President Akio Toyoda at a news conference in Tokyo, where the Yaris WRC made its public debut, complete with new launch livery.”

Nachdem sie die Formel 1 in Köln aufgegeben haben, sind jetzt meiner Meinung nach mit WEC und WRC die besseren Programme am Start.

Beides gleichzeitig durchzuziehen ist schon eine heftige Aufgabe - aber das ist ihnen selber auch klar und sie nehmen die Herausforderung an:

“Yoshiaki Kinoshita, TMG President: “It is a great honour to be asked to bring the TOYOTA name back to the World Rally Championship alongside our continued participation in the World Endurance Championship. To run two works motorsport programmes simultaneously is of course a challenge but we believe we have the expertise and determination to succeed.”
