Toyota Celica WRC. Refresh My Memory…

In eras when the Audi Quattro, Lancia Delta and Subaru Impreza reigned supreme, the Toyota Celica WRC is often overlooked. Indeed, usually it’s the Celica’s little brother – the Corolla WRC – that springs to mind when one thinks of the World Rally Championship: in this car, Carlos Sainz came within 500m of world title glory in 1998.

But spare a thought for the Celica: it had the looks, few of you will doubt that; it had the pace, winning two WRC driver’s titles; and it had the durability, competing in 1997 seventeen years after its debut. But it also had the noise. Some things just aren’t meant to be forgotten.
