Sketched images with the new generation Toyota Avensis BTCC have been released today, and this racing concept is expected to make track debut at this year’s Dunlop MSA British Touring
Car Championship, during the last round.
The Toyota Avensis BTCC has been designed and engineered by GPR Motorsport according to the latest BTCC regulations, and in 2011 the pilot behind the wheel will be James Thompson, who is a BTCC double champion.
We have no technical details with the Toyota Avensis BTCC at this point, but things should change as we get close to the racer’s first public appearance on 9 – 10 October, at Brands Hatch.
GPR Motorsport press release :
GPR Motorsport-engineered Next Generation Touring Car
First images of the Toyota Avensis Next Generation Touring Car (NGTC)
have been released, revealing the racing concept that will make its
track debut in the final round of this year’s Dunlop MSA British Touring
Car Championship.
The artist’s drawings reveal more design details of the Avensis that
is being designed and engineered by GPR Motorsport in Buckingham as a
test and development model for new BTCC regulations.
Toyota has supplied GPR Motorsport with a donor car and bodyshell to
build to the new specifications, which teams will be able to adopt from
the 2011 season. James Thompson, a BTCC double champion, will pilot the
Avensis NGTC when it makes its first public race appearance at Brands
Hatch on 9 – 10 October.
Toyota has no plans to re-enter the championship with a works team,
but has been pleased to lend its support to TOCA, appropriately with a
British-built car – Avensis is manufactured at Burnaston in Derbyshire,
close to the Donington Park race circuit.
