Interest ahead of the Nurburgring 24hrs is really starting to hot up. Fresh off the news that Aston Martin will once again compete in the endurance event with a race-spec V12 Zagato, Toyota has now rolled out their confirmed line-up for Germany. And its latest sportscar, the 86, leads the charge.
The buzz is really starting to pick up with the 86. We’ve all read the reviews, seen the videos and heard the PR talk. And at the end of this month, the 86 will finally land in the Middle East.
So as you can imagine, seeing what four (yep, four) 86 SP3 category models can do on-track around the most famous circuit in Europe before we (hopefully) plant ourselves behind the wheel is something we really want to see.
Don’t think though that the Gazoo Racing-prepared 86s will be the only star turnout for the Toyota parent company. Lexus’ almost sinfully handsome LFA will also be in action in the SP8 category. And that’s already tasted class victory in two shorter blasts at the Nurburgring.
Just under three days before the Nurburgring 24hrs kicks off. Not a bad way to celebrate 40 years of the event, is it?.
