TOYOTA Motorsport GmbH (TMG) is pleased to announce partnerships with two respected rally companies to deliver local sales and spare parts services for the GT86 CS-R3 rally car in some of Europe’s biggest markets.

Gassner Motorsport (Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany and Slovenia) and RallyPrep (UK and Ireland) have been given exclusive licenses from TMG to act as official distributors for the CS-R3 and spare parts in their respective territories.

TMG will continue its own sales activities on a worldwide basis and hopes to announce similar distributor arrangements in other key markets in due course.

Sebastian Janssen, Senior Manager Business Development: “We believe it is important to have a local partner who has the right contacts and knows the specific conditions in their market. By providing a local distributor in these key territories, we ensure that CS-R3 customers receive the best support. We have built strong relationships with Gassner Motorsport and RallyPrep so we are looking forward to working together to share the excitement of rear-wheel-drive rallying with our CS-R3.”

CS-R3 cars are already competing across Europe and have quickly become fan favourites thanks to the spectacular rear-wheel-drive action. The car has been noticed by competitors as well, winning R3 and two-wheel-drive classes in several events.

The CS-R3 is unique within the FIA’s rally pyramid as the only rear-wheel-drive car to be homologated in the competitive R3 category, which makes it eligible to compete in local, national and international rallies.

Significant effort has gone into the two-litre, normally-aspirated boxer engine which is not a familiar configuration in R3. Using TMG’s engine development tools, changes to the engine internals and software have earned a maximum power of 232hp, and peak torque of 235Nm.

To deliver a true motorsport feel, the CS-R3 has a six-speed sequential transmission from gearbox specialists Drenth designed specifically for rear-wheel-drive cars, and limited slip rear differential.

A weight optimisation programme has enhanced the already-nimble handling of the GT86 while upgraded suspension, brakes and exhaust ensure peak performance on the stage. There is no compromise on safety, with safety items and protective roll cage supplied as standard.
