The TOYOTA GAZOO Racing World Rally Team is ready for the FIA 2021 World Rally Championship season with a new look for the Toyota Yaris WRC.
If you wonder why the car’s livery looks so familiar, it is because the new livery is similar to that worn by the new GR010 HYBRID. The design show the strong connection between Toyota’s competition cars and road cars such as the GR Yaris, which has been developed using the knowledge gained by the team in the WRC.
The team continues to work to optimise the Yaris WRC, with further developments set to be introduced during 2021. The car is also now fitted with Pirelli tyres as the Italian company becomes the sole tyre supplier for the WRC’s top categories from this season.
The driver line-up for TOYOTA GAZOO Racing World Rally Team still remain the same: Sébastien Ogier with Julien Ingrassia, Elfyn Evans with Scott Martin, and Kalle Rovanperä with Jonne Halttunen. The 2021 WRC season is set to begin with the classic curtain-raiser Rallye Monte-Carlo on January 21-24.
