Kankkunen to drive a hydrogen-fuel GR Yaris in Belgium

Toyota Gazoo Racing WRT announced today that Juha Kankkunen will drive the GR Yaris H2 at Ypres Rally Belgium next week.

The four-time World Rally Champion will get behind the wheel of this brand new car on one stage each day of Ypres Rally in intention of testing it and giving a feedback to Toyota.

This car was also been tested by Jari-Matti Latvala at Fuji 24 hours and had alongside him Akio Toyoda.

"It will also be interesting to see the GR Yaris H2 in action: It was exciting for me to compete in the Fuji 24 Hours together with Akio and now we have the chance to demonstrate the same technology on the rally stages", Jari-Matti Latvala said.

"I would love to have driven the car myself but with my focus on the rally, I’m looking forward to hear what Juha Kankkunen makes of driving a hydrogen-fuelled car".
