Feature Car: Forestry Commission


Recommended Posts

This has been sitting around for 3 months. I don't have a spec list as yet as the car is under-going major engine surgery, sorry about that.

Anyway here it is in the feature cars section, spec to follow soon:



Don't forget if you fancy having your car featured on TOC check out this post. :thumbsup:

Superb - car and write up.  Is there any chance of seeing this at !Removed! or JAE I wonder?

I was asking Phil about taking it to JAE when I took those pics.

He said proberly not but he was looking into building a replica for promo purposes, I think he should bring it down as you guys would love it. :yes:

Thanks for the comments on the write-up guys. :) :thumbsup:

i like the Rally Yaris, it's a very cool thing to do to a Yaris actually :D

agree with that, especially its 130bhp from 1.3 and Phils commitment to Rallying :thumbsup:

Excellent write up as well Si :yes:

Perhaps he could let up know when and where he's rallying it so we could give him some support?

I think you might be able to find a website for the championship he's running in, it's the Silkolene 1400 Forest Rally Championship. Not sure if he's doing every event though. :thumbsup:

Thanks once more for the comments. :)

Si! Dude! That's an awesome write-up, mate. Thanks so much for taking the time to put it together.

We're waiting to get approval for a new suspension setup at the moment. We're hoping to fit that and then do a gravel test in North Wales at a forest test venue.

When we're testing, we can take people out in the car so you can experience the Yaris at full speed between the trees. We can combine this with a morning on the off-road rally karts. We could put together a decent day out in the forests, actually. Team hospitality and all that jazz. PM me if you might be interested.

As for our next rally, it may be the Quinton Stages on 10th July based in Builth Wells, Mid Wales. It all depends on the suspension and test, really.

Thanks a lot to everyone for your interest so far and for your support. It's really appreciated.

All the best.

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
