What Is Gazoo Racing?

Before we take a sneak peek at the 2023 GR Corolla, we want to go over what GR is all about. GR stands for Gazoo Racing and it serves as the main motorsports team for Toyota. Toyota has a rich history in Formula One, rallycross racing, and more across multiple different Toyota racing teams. In 2015, Toyota decided to combine the legacy of every racing team under one entity known as Toyota Gazoo Racing.

While Toyota Gazoo Racing focuses on professional racing and motorsports, they’ve been steadily developing an incredible lineup of road vehicles for drivers like you to enjoy. The latest creation from Gazoo Racing available soon for you to drive around Georgetown is the GR Corolla.

Toyota Corolla GR: Specifications

It’s clear that Toyota Gazoo Racing means business when it comes to performance so it’s no surprise that the GR Corolla performance highlights are so impressive. The master driver of Toyota Gazoo Racing, Akio Toyoda, has even signed off approval on the GR Corolla. It features a lightweight and powerful turbocharged three-cylinder engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission and a rally-developed GR-Four all-wheel-drive system.
