2021 - Today / Toyota Gazoo Racing
In January 2021 TGRE in Cologne took over full control of the WRC operation and relocated the WRC team from Puppola (ex Makinen) to a new factory in Jyvaskyla, the WRC team keeps operationg from Finland and the WEC / GT4 operation from Germany, while many facilities and processes are shared now between all operations.
2021 also was the start of the new Hypercar era in the WEC and the start of the development of the new Yaris WRC Hybrid car, so a big year for a manufacturer.
The GR Supra GT4 also continued to run strong all over the World now with more than 50 cars being sold already in 2020 - 2021 .. this category is quite sucessfull for professionals and Amateur drivers.
TOYOTA made history in 2021 firstly by winning the 24h of Le Mans for the 4th time and by winning the WEC Hypercar Teams Title and WEC Drivers Title with car #7, and won the WRC Manufacturers title and WRC drivers / co-drivers title.
I believe it is a first time in history that a car manufacturer has scored these 2 prestigious titles and i am very proud to be part of the Toyota Gazoo Racing family.
The GR Yaris roadcar also became a popular car in many country's to start a national Rally Trophy (Italy) and soon to follow in Spain & Portugal
