    GR Supra GT4 sales in 2020 confirmed

    Toyota Gazoo Racing today confirmed it will launch the GR Supra GT4, a race car for private/customer teams, in 2020 

    This comes on the back of growing worldwide customer expectations following the unveiling of a GR Supra GT4 concept car at the Geneva Motor Show in March this year, and the GR Supra’s participation in the Nürburgring 24 Hours race in June.

    The company plans to strengthen its focus on customer motorsports to help people around the world take part in racing, It will use feedback gained from their involvement to help develop ever-better cars.

    The GR Supra GT4* race car is based on GR Supra – Toyota Gazoo Racing’s first global model, released earlier this year – and is developed by Toyota Motorsport GmbH.

    The GT4 competition category is popular with private race teams around the world because of its low cost and simple entry requirements. GT4 cars are eligible for a wide variety of races, including the continental series and the VLN endurance races at the Nurburgring in Europe, the Michelin Pilot series in the USA and the Super Takiyu series in Japan. GR Supra already competes in the NASCAR Xfinity championship in North America and, from 2020, is scheduled to take part in the Super GT GT500 class in Japan.

    Toyota Gazoo Racing joined forces with three technical partners to develop the GR Supra GT4: Akrapovič, Pirelli and Ravenol. Akrapovič will co-operate in development of motorsport exhaust systems, while Pirelli will collaborate on tyre development and Ravenol will provide lubricants. The car’s full specifications, pricing, sales area and release date will be announced later this year.
