Toyota has just announced that it will be fielding two GT 86 models at Japan’s SuperGT Series at the Nurburgring, just behind Subaru’s BRZ.

Gazoo Racing modified the set, although just how they did so has not been outlined, yet. Toyota may also be entering the World Rally Championship to dominate again as it has done in the past. Formula One has been taking the place of WRC for the automaker, but with F1 out of the picture, it opens up new avenues for Toyota to explore.
