TagRallySport to Run Toyota Yaris in Rally America’s B Spec Championship
Following a recent announcement that Toyota would make a comeback into the world of WRC Rally with the new and affordable Yaris R1A rally car, TagRallySport, the female owned Motorsport Company from Rhode Island is pleased to announce that they will be debuting a Toyota Yaris in the 2013 Rally America National Championship.
Tag Rally Sport owner Tracey Gardiner and Nameless Motorsport shook hands on a car build for 2013, both attending the SEMA show this week to discuss the details. Tracey is very confident that this partnership will be a good one.
“Jason and John are very passionate about what they do and have already prepared my Subaru after Olympus rally,” said Tracey. “After observing them during the 2012 series, and how well they took care of Summit Racing and Will Orders, a professional driver who had traveled from Australia for the Rally America series, I knew they have a love for the sport and was very impressed with their professionalism, attention to detail and knowledge of what is needed to keep a car running in a stage rally.”
Jason Griffith and John Hoyenga, owners of the performance fabrication and automation qualification company from Washington State are very excited about the prospects of building a rally car for Tracey for 2013.
TagRallySport choose to bring the Toyota Yaris to the 2013 series because of its appeal as an affordable but exciting car which makes rallying accessible to a whole range of participants. As a company dedicated to promoting the grassroots level of participation they believe bringing a car of this caliber to the sport will encourage teams to join at an entry level. They will also continue to run a Subaru in 2013.
According to Toyota, the Yaris R1A is going to be the first vehicle to obtain the FIA R1A homologation and this is expected to happen before the end of 2012. Once homologated, drivers will be able to compete in regional, national and international competitions, up to even WRC events.
