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.
