Hey guys, since we're still waiting on more info to be released by Toyota thought I might post something here.

I wasn't sure I was gonna get one until I talked to my sales rep and he's pretty adamant that they will get me a circuit edition so here we are. Started my fun cars list with a used 2013 Scion FR-S (MT), then moved onto a MK7.5 GTI (I really regret selling this car, hence why I'm going back in with the GR Corolla), and added a GR Supra to my garage shortly after the GTI. During 2020, I alongside a few friend of mine made the decision of adding a dedicated race car so we bought the EG Civic (shown below), and I had to sacrifice the GTI for a 2020 Tundra (XK50) to handle towing duties.

My current lineup right now:

Tire Wheel Vehicle Land vehicle Car


Tire Sky Wheel Cloud Vehicle


Wheel Vehicle Tire Car Hood




Really can't wait to have all the fun with the GR Corolla!

Welcome! Is that your Porsche as well? I really wanted a Cayman GT4, but man have their prices gone high and stayed high. How do you like the new Tundra??

Yeah it is, went with the Spyder route knowing there's a GT4RS on the way, and hoping they could grace me with an allocation at some point (unlikely, but we'll see😂)

I didn't expect to upgrade, but my local dealership had a demo when it first came out, the mistake I made was going in and went on the test drive...It's leagues better than the old one, comfortable, quiet, and all the techs that makes long trips much easier to dealt with (specifically blind spot monitoring that counted for trailer length, lane keep and acc)

Nice hatch! cool!

What's your engine?

Welcome!
Assuming you meant the EG (and unfortunately its not a hatch but a coupe). We ran a B18b in there, not fast, but reliable (after the latest rebuild that is), stays cool unless you're doing full throttle for way too long (e.g. Daytona) then you'd have to back off for a lap then go on it again. That's our enduro car, and so far almost issue free for the past 4 races

Yes, ohhh those b series are like tank! when it's properly build. A fun to drive! I miss my EG, I still have it but it's along way home.

Welcome! I live over in Raleigh. What area do you reside? I also do a bit of the endurance racing :geek:
Ha I figured! I'm in Cary, so definitely not far from you. Which org do you usually run with? I used to run with Lemon but nowadays we just pretty much just do champcars

I'm in S Ral, so just down the road. I'm a driver on a Lemons team (owner is in Wake Forest). Though I have an MR2 Spyder in the garage that I purchased with the intent of turning into a race car (not there yet however).
