Just seen this posted on facebook a few minutes ago. Should be good to see them back rallying again but according to the link it will be at least 2 if not 3 years before we see it rallying. What do ye reckon it will be like when it does get going?

has been about for a while now in South Africa.
They are also developing a GT-86 WRC at the minute, but it is supposed to be a s2000 model first from what I have heard

Never knew until now that this was out already. I would imagine it would have to use a 1.6 like the rest of the wrc cars but would you fit a 1.6 in the front of the yaris?


@lee any link to anything about the gt86?

I'll see if I can find it, was a few months ago (around September/October) I seen it.
I know there is a man up here currently building a GT-86 rally car, hoping to have it ready for the Donegal International

I got it wrong, the GT-86 is going to be an R3 car according to the press release

The Yaris was chosen because of regulations of the car size, and it was best suited (although they had to get exemptions because the car is a few inches short of regulation size)

There is a few pictures of the GT86 rally car fresh from the build by Davy Greer.
Looking forward to seeing videos of this being tested, and hopefully see it on the stages at this years Harvest Rally Razz
