Maybe!

The development-model Avensis, currently being built by GPR Motorsport in Buckingham, will soon be testing ahead of its public track debut at the final rounds of the 2010 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Brands Hatch on 9-10 October.

It would be nice to see and variation always creates a little bit more interest, I used to enjoyed seeing the Seat diesels

Yeah, I remember seeing the diesel Leons at the last BTCC I went to there... was pretty weird as they shot past so quietly! I swear the turbo was louder than the engine! :lol:

A sharp contrast to the Volvos which sounded like they were being revved to death; Sounded more like motorcycles than cars! :lol:

Hmm... I wonder if the TSS could get into Brands Hatch? :unsure::spiteful:

It probably was, the turbo must be the size of a dustbin lid :lol:

The Avensis touring car will happen as it's being used as the test car for the next gen touring cars.

It still remains to be seen though if Toyota are going to re-enter the BTCC

That concept in the photo look OK. But now I don't think the design is going to holds up well in like 2015.An at that angle it reminds me too much of the Scion TC, which really hasn't aged well either!!

Is see there using a tuned 3ZR-FE engine these are only 150bhp in road going versions allow seem to be an inteligent engine uses toyota valvematic system along with dual vvti allow with tuning hard to no if any of that will be taken out or not. The engine appears very light and there confident it will be very durable and be one of the fastest on the circult.

3rd is a very good result and did i not see plato knock a leading toyota off the track in one of the races naughty boy.

Both Cars had a great showing towards the end of last season, but the first round at Brands 2012 was not the strongest,but

Donington is also a ‘home event’ for the BTCC’s two privateer Toyota teams, Dynojet and Speedworks Motorsport – the Avensis model they both race originated from the manufacturer’s successful plant in nearby Burnaston, Derbyshire.

Fingers crossed the guys can get the 2 toyota's further up the sharp end of the grid with the Vectra's and Honda's and the MG's.

Role on round 2.

Great racing again this weekend from the BTCC, ITV's coverage was very good again.

A better showing for the Toyota s this weekend, with Frank Wrathall breaking into the top 10 in Race 1 and Race 3.

Thruxton is the next round 29/04 hopefully this track will play more into the hands for the Toyota's with it

been a power circuit.

Run down of results of Donnington.

Race 1: Frank Wrathall P9, Adam Morgan P15, Tony Hughes P20

Race 2: Frank Wrathall P14, Adam Morgan P13, Tony Hughes P16

Race 3: Franks Wrathall P7, Adam Morgan DNF, Tony Hughes P16

Team Points for independents:
