The 2016 Nürburgring 24 Hours will starts May 28 during the weekend.
So, Toyota is about to race the 2016 Nürburgring 24 Hours which is an endurance test of it’s own with their new C-HR Crossover in partnership with Gazoo Racing Motorsport they are planning to tune the C-HR subcompact crossover concept previewed earlier by Toyota and prep it for race spec.
It’s no surprize that Toyota joined forces in the 2016 Nürburgring 24 Hours as this marks their 10th year and this year they wanted to do something special as CEO Akio Toyoda stated earlier, as he thinks testing their cars under extreme racing conditions is a great strategy for deveopling Toyota cars.
It’s not going to be all fun and games, Toyota is actually planning to use every bit of learning experience taken from C-HR Crossover concept raced in the Nurburgring and put that into the actual production C-HR which will be launched in 2017 if all goes according to plan. I would have wished for the Toyota FT1 to be the star of the 2016 Nurburgring Race in which it would make production after real-time testing, but I guess that’s gotta wait for now.
Toyota will also drop the 2016 Lexus RC and RC-F coupe race cars to join forces with the CH-R crossover concept with race specs of-course, as you might know things get heated on such a large circuit which is truly a test of endurance for the team, the brand and everyone in the race.
FT1 or CH-R?? Which one would you like to see make into Toyota’s showroom.
