The team at RRG Huddersfield Toyota enjoyed a great few days at the Yorkshire Motorsport Festival over the weekend displaying the GR Supra, GR Yaris and All New Yaris Cross.
Set over a 125-acre outdoor space near Holmfirth, the three-day event proved popular. From supercars and vintage classics, to formula one and American hot rods, there were hundreds of speciality cars on display. Also in the line-up were trucks, vintage tractors and classic plant vehicles to offer something for all types of vehicle enthusiasts. The event also featured three days of hill climbs featuring Bentleys, Jaguars, sports racing and GT cars; the first time such an event had been held in Yorkshire on a closed public road.
The RRG Huddersfield Toyota stand featured the New GR Yaris; a pure performance car, born from Toyota’s title-winning experience in the World Rally Championship. It brings motorsport technology and design directly to the world of the road car, true to TOYOTA GAZOO Racing’s ethos for making ever-better cars that are rewarding and fun to drive. The newly developed three-cylinder, 1.6-litre turbocharged engine delivers outstanding acceleration and response- 257bhp and 0-62 mph in just 5.5 seconds to be precise. When coupled with the adjustable Four-Wheel Drive System, the GR Yaris delivers outstanding handling.
The GR Yaris was the second fully-developed road car released under the Toyota's Gazoo Racing UK division, with the first being the GR Supra; of which two will be on the show stand this year. This legendary model, last on sale in the UK in the 1990s, has been completely re-developed for the 21st century as a sports car in its purest form. Available with either a 2.0 Turbo developing 254bhp or 3.0 6-cylinder making 340bhp, the GR Supra has been conceived as a sports car in its purest form. It is engineered to combine a short wheelbase and wide track; resulting in exceptional agility and stability.
We were also delighted to have a pre-production model All New Yaris Cross Compact SUV on display; bringing all the qualities of our new-generation Yaris to a high-riding compact SUV. Enjoy enhanced fuel efficiency with our latest self-charging Hybrid system and listen to your favourite tunes via the latest multimedia technology on board, including Apple Car Play and Android Auto along with Toyota Smart Connect available on some versions which includes wireless smartphone integration. Additionally, the option of an intelligent all-wheel drive system for all-weather control means you’ll be exploring in comfort. The All New Yaris Cross Hybrid will be ready for adventure in your city in September 2021.
