Toyota Gazoo Racing will launch the GR Supra GT4, a race car for customer teams, in 2020.
The announcement comes in response to growing customer expectations worldwide following the unveiling of the GR Supra GT4 Concept at the Geneva International Motor Show in March, and the participation of the GR Supra at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring in June. Toyota Gazoo Racing intends to strengthen its focus on customer motorsports and develop cars using the feedback gained through race participation.
The GR Supra GT4 is based on the GR Supra — Toyota Gazoo Racing’s first-ever global model released earlier this year — and it is developed and produced by Toyota Motorsport GmbH.
The GT4 category is popular with private race teams around the world due to its low cost and ease of entry. GT4 cars are eligible to participate in a variety of races across the globe, including the Super Taikyu Series in Japan, the GT4 European Series and the VLN Endurance Championship Nürburgring in Europe, and the Michelin Pilot Challenge Series in the U.S.
The GR Supra already participates in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in North America and, from 2020, is scheduled to compete in the Super GT GT500 Class in Japan. Details regarding the specifications of the GR Supra GT4, including its selling price, sales area and release date, are scheduled to be announced later this year.
