What is Toyota bringing to the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed?

2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed

Toyota’s showcase of race, rally, off-road and high-performance vehicles at the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed will demonstrate how motorsport is feeding directly into our development of ever-better road cars. It will also illustrate our broad, multi-path strategy for reducing harmful emissions and to ultimately achieve carbon neutrality. We reveal what the planned line-up will look like.

Toyota at the 2024 Goodwood Festival of Speed:

Toyota Gazoo Racing World Rally Team is delighted to bring a current GR Yaris Rally1 Hybrid (above) to the festival. It will be joined by an example of the GR Yaris Rally2, which made its official debut in the second tier of the WRC this year and was developed primarily for independent customer teams.

GR Yaris special editions

World Champion drivers Sébastien Ogier and Kalle Rovanperä will be at the festival for the official hand-over of their eponymously titled GR Yaris special edition models (above). These highly exclusive versions benefit from unique customisation features and personal input from each respective driver to tune the handling. Meanwhile, TGR driver Elfyn Evans is scheduled to attend on Friday and Saturday to demonstrate the pace and handling of the GR Yaris Rally1 Hybrid. Rovanperä is also scheduled to demonstrate his drifting prowess on Goodwood’s iconic hill climb in his specially engineered GR Supra.

Toyota Gazoo Racing’s mighty GR DKR Hilux Evo T1U (above) will be tackling all three of the festival’s routes: the hill climb, rally stage and off-road course. The team’s leading crews from the 2024 FIA World Rally-Raid Championship will be attending: Lucas Moraes and co-driver Armand Monleon, and Seth Quintero with partner Dennis Zenz.

Finally, Toyota Gazoo Racing UK’s British Touring Car Championship Corolla (above) will complete our active participation on the hill climb. The car has already achieved a number of podium finishes and a race win during this year’s BTCC series.

Toyota’s engagement in top-level international motorsport continues to produce knowledge and expertise that is directly supporting our mission to develop ever-better road cars. At Goodwood, this will be witnessed in the new GR Yaris, which has been further honed to offer more power, even sharper handling and the option of a new eight-speed Gazoo Racing Direct Automatic transmission.

We are also actively exploring the potential for internal combustion engines to run on alternative, carbon neutral fuels – a technology that could help preserve the sensory excitement of motorsport driving. This will be illustrated by the first European-built version of the new GR Yaris using hydrogen as a fuel (above and lead image). The multi-technology theme extends to support vehicles used at the event, which will include the hydrogen fuel cell Hilux prototype and the efficient Corolla Commercial hybrid.
