The brand new Team Toyota GB Corolla made its track debut today after Tom Ingram completed an initial shakedown of the Speedworks Motorsport built car around the Oulton Park circuit.

Toyota GB are returning to the BTCC as a manufacturer entry with the already highly successful Speedworks Motorsport outfit and today saw their all-new Corolla turn its first laps before heading to Spain for its pre-season testing programme.

The new car ran in camouflage during the initial shakedown as the team are expected to reveal the Corolla's full race livery at the Brands Hatch season launch later this month.

“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," said last year's BTCC runner-up Ingram.

“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!”
