World Rally Championship

Our pursuit of high performance in the WRC
Following three consecutive clean sweeps of manufacturers', drivers' and co-drivers' titles in 2021, 2022 and 2023, the sensational Hybrid-powered GR Yaris Rally1 continues to spearhead 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 continues the pursuit to make even-better cars.

GR Yaris Rally1

For the Rally1 rules introduced for 2022, the team developed the GR YARIS Rally1 HYBRID, which 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. The car has set the benchmark in the Rally1 era, winning manufacturers', drivers' and co-drivers' titles in both seasons since the WRC’s greatest technical revolution for a generation. Kalle Rovanperä has emerged as the new star of WRC, being crowned the youngest ever WRC drivers’ champion at the age of 22 and defending his title the following season.

  • 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 Greece and Mexico.
    Snow: Frozen roads, snowbanks and studded tyres. A loose-surface suspension setup is essential for sub-zero events such as Rally Sweden.
