    Toyota announces WRC plans

    Here is a link to Best Car magazine in Japan. You can see the cover of their next issue, which is due out on Monday. The headline says something like
    "Toyota confirms WRC participation!!"

    I will attempt to find a copy, tomorrow.

    If Mini, Saab and now Toyota actually enter the WRC then things will be very exciting by 2012 I hope. Whether they actually enter, or it ends up like USF1 in Formula 1 I'm not sure, but its certainly encouraging.

    Well, Mini is with Prodrive so I'm not worried about them.

    Saab is still only a rumour...

    Toyota would be so cool. It just amazes me how long they spent time in F1

    I'm interested about Subaru and Mitsubishi... are they just going to follow when others take the opportunity ?

    Bridgestone quitting in F1 after 2010, WRC going for free tire in 2011, could this lead into Toyota+Bridgestone in WRC? We'll see...

    I assume the Auris would be the car used judging by the picture at the bottom left corner of the magazine. There is already a S2000 Auris in the South African Championship I believe.

    The Auris has also been used in the Australian championship for 2-3 years now, both in group n and S2000 spec.
