Toyota Motorsport has given customers the offer to participate in a continent-wide racing series if they buy a specially-modified version of the GT86 sports coupe.

Called the Toyota Gazoo Racing Trophy, willing participants can buy a race-ready GT86 CS-Cup model to take part that is worth £43,000, or a £73,750 GT86 C3-R3 rally car kit that comes disassembled but has all the relevant equipment.

With these cars, you can take part in any eligible racing series around Europe, and earn points for the Gazoo Racing Trophy dependant on your results in those competitions.

The winner at the end of the racing season will win £30,000 and a new Toyota CH-R, while second takes away £22,000 and third claims a £17,500 prize.

With the option to choose between track or rally racing series, customers can display their skills in their preferred discipline and fight it out for the main prize.

Competitors must take part in a minimum of five events before November 30, 2018, to be eligible and only the ten best results will be taken into account for the standings.

Emanuele Battisti, TMG’s Customer Motorsport Project Leader, said: “The Toyota Gazoo Racing Trophy is an exciting project which brings together a large number of competitors from different disciplines to compete for the title.

“We have worked hard to create a trophy which brings added value to our GT86 customers and reflects the values of Toyota Gazoo Racing. Combining race and rally cars in the same competition is a very interesting aspect and we believe this will create excitement for participants and fans. The trophy has great potential and I believe we are at the start of a new era for customer motorsport with Toyota in Europe.”
