Tom Ingram has taken to the wheel of Toyota UK and Speedworks Motorsport’s all-new Corolla for the first time today (1 March) at Oulton Park.
Here’s what Tom had to say after his first run in the car.
“It’s an amazing feeling to get out on-track in the new Corolla. Ever since Toyota officially came on-board late last year, everything we’ve done has been building up to this moment.
“The car looks amazing – which is credit to all the Speedworks boys, who have done a cracking job as always – and it’s an absolute honour to be representing Toyota GB in this new British-built beast. Today is essentially a shakedown test, but we’ll truly be putting the Corolla through its paces in Spain next week and I can’t wait to see what it can do!”
The team now moves on to Spain’s Circuit Calafat for more extensive running next week, with its pre-season testing schedule also including Brands Hatch and the traditional BTCC Season Launch test.
We think the new BTCC Toyota Corolla is a beauty – what do you think? Head over to the BTCC’s social media channels for more photos and to join the discussion.
