Toyota thinking of renting the fifth GR Yaris Rally1 to privateers

The team principal of Toyota Gazoo Racing WRT, Jari-Matti Latvala, reveals that there is a possibility for his team to offer a Toyota GR Yaris Rally1 for renting to customers.

The Japanese team has selected three drivers who will join Takamoto Katsuta and the "Next Generation Team" in World Rally Championship, but they are currently in Finland to train themselves at the Toyota training site.

In fact, Toyota revealed that there is an option to run five cars in the second half of this season and it was likely that Esapekka Lappi will compete in the same events as Sebastien Ogier will do or a young driver will join the second team of Toyota in WRC this year.

"We have to have a look because we have a possibility for the fifth chassis for the second half of the season", Latvala said.

"But we have to see what Toyota will decide if they want to.

"We are looking at options if we could rent it but it’s now up to Toyota, what they want to do and if they want to rent it".
