Yaris WRC

http://www.racer.com/toyota-building...rticle/324348/

Would be cool if they actually do it. Not that we would get it here anyway.

You know. I really hope they follow thru with this. I mean, a Mini Cooper awd and fiesta awd... I don't see why the yaris could not be a good platform to convert to awd for WRC.

Not the same trim level as they will do for WRC.

I dont even care if they never make a production awd yaris. I just wanna see it compete with evo, fiesta, wrx and Citroen. I hope Loeb signs on driving it. That would be epic. Highly unlikely, but awesome

I have a friend who's rallying the B-spec Yaris in the US. UP in Canada we just won the 2wd overall at the Big White winter rally last weekend against Porsche, Saab, VW's, Fords, ae86's, Celica's and a gaggle of Subaru's that had some problems like Max Riddle.
What was the car? A production stock engine 1nzfe Yaris ncp91. Who Co-drove/Navigated? Ex Team Subaru rally Navigator and Verena Mei's current Co-driver Leanne Junnila. Who drove? a 73 year old man named Taisto Heinonen who's old rally Corolla is sitting in a museum in Finland. He was the Toyota Team Rally driver in the 80's who competed against Buffum and Millen for North American championship points. At this rally they came 6th overall. Quite a feat considering this car was stock. There maybe rumours about a cool Yaris rally car for 2014, but you might have to come to Canada to check it out. Or maybe we'll be down in the US for the Olympus/nameless rally for some fun.

I would imagine if it happened at all it would be along with the next Yaris update.

Makes sense though, the current chassis does not have much time left, so wait till you get the next gen car.

Didn't Toyota have a lifetime ban from WRC back in the 90s?

Only one year. With the lack of manufacturers I am sure they would forget about an past indiscretion just to get another car out there.

So is this a confirmation that a 4th gen Yaris is in the makes?

I was eyeing the 3rd gen and was thinking about a possible trade in... But now I will wait to see this possible 4th gen...
