New Toyota Supra To Get Race Debut This Weekend In VLN9

Evaluation of platform for motorsport use, GT4 version possible

The new for 2019 Toyota Supra will see its first ever race action this weekend at the Nürburgring with a car entered in the SP8T class entered for the VLN season finale.

With a pair of Toyota test and development drivers slated to drive the car, DSC understands that the outing is to assess the motorsport potential for the front-engined, Straight-6-powered car.

Whilst the new car, which shares its platform with the new BMW Z4, has been the subject of rumours and speculation around potential GTE and/ or GT3 versions, DSC believes that a more modest GT4-level specification is a more likely eventual outcome.
