World Rally Championship

Our pursuit of high performance in the WRC
The all-conquering Yaris WRC bows out to usher in a bold new era for the FIA World Rally Championship. In its place, the sensational hybrid-powered GR Yaris Rally1 spearheads the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing World Rally Team's quest to push the limits for better on the world's most demanding rally stages.

Winner of 18 rounds of the World Rally Championship

Jari-Matti Latvala is the most experienced driver in the history of the WRC and has been part of the story of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing World Rally team since its debut in 2017. In his role as Team Principal, he will continue the pursuit to make even-better cars.

GR Yaris Rally1

Meet the 2022 GR Yaris Rally1, successor to the hugely successful Yaris WRC. Featuring hybrid technology for the first time in top-level rallying, GR Yaris Rally1 combines the same 1.6-litre turbocharged engine from Yaris WRC with a 3.9 kWh battery and a motor-generator unit (MGU) to provide drivers with over 500 PS. With regulations dictating less complex aerodynamics, a return to a mechanical gearshift and the removal of the active centre differentials, the new Rally1 era promises to push the performance of both cars and drivers to enthralling new extremes.

  • All roads lead to better

    Tarmac: Twisty turns, unforgiving roads and durable hard tyres. Lowered suspension is a must-have for high-speed events such as Rally Estonia.
    Gravel: Rutted roads, rocky tracks and a range of tyre compounds. Raised gravel suspension is crucial for hot weather events such as Rally New Zealand.
    Snow: Frozen roads, snowbanks and studded tyres. A loose-surface suspension setup is essential for sub-zero events such as Rally Sweden.
