2WD HONOURS FOR CS-R3 IN AUSTRIA

TOYOTA Motorsport GmbH (TMG) earned another two-wheel-drive victory with its GT86 CS-R3 rally car, winning the class on the Liezen Rally in Austria.

Italian driver Luca Rossetti, who has helped developed the car and earned class victories in the Tour European Rally Series and FIA European Rally Championship, was behind the wheel and delivered another competitive performance.

He took his TMG GT86 CS-R3 to victory in the TER 2WD class and an impressive 12th overall, ahead of several R5 cars. The privately-entered GT86 CS-R3 of Hermann Gassner Jr was fourth in his class and 35th overall after an incident on day one.

In addition to a class winner’s trophy, TMG also left Austria with the TER Team Spirit Award, having impressed the judges with their professional and spirited performance through the weekend.
