Customer GR Supra GT4 available in 2020
Toyota Gazoo Racing has confirmed it will launch the GR Supra GT4 customer racing car in 2020.
Fancy a spot of GT4 racing? Well, from 2020, you’ll be able to buy a Toyota GR Supra GT4 racer. The decision comes off the back of the reveal of the GR Supra GT4 Concept at the Geneva Motor Show in March and the GR Supra racing at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring in June.
The Supra GT4 will be Toyota Gazoo Racing’s first-ever global car and will be developed and produced by Toyota Motorsport GmbH. GT4 cars are eligible to participate in a variety of races across the globe, including the Super Taikyu Series in Japan, the GT4 European Series and the VLN Endurance Championship Nürburgring in Europe, and the Michelin Pilot Challenge Series in the U.S.
“The GR Supra already participates in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in North America and, from 2020, is scheduled to compete in the Super GT GT500 Class in Japan. The arrival of the GR Supra GT4 will provide motorsports fans with the joy of watching the GR Supra compete on circuits around the world,” Toyota said.
Toyota is keeping key details quiet but has said that “to develop the Supra GT4, Toyota GAZOO Racing has joined forces with three technical partners: Akrapovič, Pirelli and Ravenol. Akrapovič will cooperate on developing motorsport-specific exhaust systems, while Pirelli will collaborate on tyre development and Ravenol will provide lubricants”.
More details will be released towards the end of the year.
