The sky’s the limit

Our pursuit of high performance in the WRC

After clinching the FIA World Rally Championship manufacturers’ title in 2018 and drivers' crown in 2019, the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing World Rally Team continue to push the limits for better. Inspired by the motto ALL FOR WIN, Toyota enters the second half of the 2020 WRC Championship at the top the manufacturers’ table.

Ultimate training ground

Epic jumps, sensational slides and terrifying top speeds, the WRC is the ultimate vehicle test bed. After 17 years away, we are hungrier than ever to fight on the world’s most extreme roads, and achieve our goal of making ever-better cars for all.

“We are always working to make small improvements to make our car even better, and we go into this season with a lighter and more powerful car... I’m confident we can aim high again this season”
Tommi Mäkinen
(Team Principal)

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 Tour de Corse.

Gravel
Rutted roads, rocky tracks and a range of tyre compounds. Raised gravel suspension is crucial for hot weather events such as Rally Mexico.

Snow
Frozen roads, snow banks and studded tyres. A loose-surface suspension setup is essential for sub-zero events such as Rally Sweden.
