Big Car Money Takes Toy Cars To Japan: Toyota Sponsors Slot Rally GB Competitors at FIA Asia-Pacific Rally Japan 2015.

After months of negotiations SlotRallyGB (SRGB) organiser Gareth Jex is pleased to confirm the second overseas round in the eight year history of the slot car rally championship.

Working with long term supporter Toyota GB PLC – SRGB has arranged that round three of the 2015 SRGB Championship will take place in Central Tokachi area – Hokkaido – Japan on 01/04/2015. The slot rally event will be located in the Kita Aikoku service park of the FIA Asia-Pacific Rally Championship event taking place at the same time. Regular FIA Asia-Pacific rally drivers and navigators will run SRGB Toyota Celica TA22 Slot cars on the Thursday evening in front of a live audience to set their starting positions for the main event on Friday.

Mr. Y.YOKOO, who drove the Toyota 86 to 8th position in the 2013 event commented “When Scot-san (Brownlee) asked me to drive for them again next year I was honoured and a little surprised, we were hoping to receive full factory support for the GT86 entry in next year’s Asia-Pacific championship series, but we will give the TA22 our full support and plan to get some practise in before next season by visiting some of the SRGB 2014 events”

Scott Brownlee - General Manager, Press Relations and Social Media – Toyota GB PLC spoke to Ben Buesnel (SRGB PR/Media) “Toyota has a long history of supporting the SRGB Championship hosting the inaugural event in 2006. Under our ‘Supporting British Motorsport’ initiative we will be sponsoring the top ten SRGB placemen in the Classic Rally class to fly to Japan to take part and assist at the FIA event. Our private jet has the capacity to take the SRGB competitors and their partners to Japan for this superb experience. Our continued commitment to all forms of environmentally sensitive motorsport is the key to the new sponsorship package and we hope that with our involvement in this event all Toyota customer road cars will benefit from the research and development carried out.

Gareth Jex – SRGB organiser commented “What a thrill – we are most grateful to Toyota for this very generous offer and look forward to Japan and to welcoming Mr Yokoo to the remaining rounds in 2014. When I suggested the idea to Scott he was doubtful that it would obtain corporate backing, but when I agreed that the water splash stage could be shipped to Hokkaido he put his full support behind it”.

Full details and travel plans will be announced nearer the time, but all SRGB competitors taking part in the 2014 overseas round (Manx Slot Rally) should bring their passports and SRGB Toyota Celica’s for scrutineering to this event as the top three in scratch class will get automatic entry. A Japanese translation app will also be provided to assist marshalling.

Posted by JEXY1 - 28-03-14 11:14 - 8 comments

Slot.it News;
Porsche 962 KH - n.27 WSPC Fuji 1000 Km 1988
Drivers: S.Dickens, H.Okada
Ref; CA17c
Official selling date: April the 8th

The Porsche 962 was a sport-prototype racing car, designed to replace the Porsche 956, to race the WSC Group C and Americans IMSA competitions. The main difference from the 956 model was the chassis, modified according to changed FIA safety rules.

This Group C racer from Porsche was one of the most succesfull racing cars ever, its results including:

- World Sport-Prototype Championship: 1985, 1986
- Le Mans 24h: 1986, 1987, 1994
- IMSA GTP Championship: 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988
- Daytona 24h: 1985, 1986, 1987, 1989, 1991
- Sebring 12h: 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988

Two were the versions of this car: "962" for IMSA Championships, "962C" for Group C races.

The Fuji 1000-kilometres October race was part of the 1988 World Sports-Prototype Championship as well as the Japanese Championship series. Thirteen Porsche 962Cs lined up for the race, including the cars engaged in the World Championship and those engaged in the national series. 'From A Racing' car number 27, driven by Hideki Okada and Stanley Dickens, crossed the finish line in 4th position.
The overall 1988 title in the 'All Japan Sports-Prototype Championship' racing series eventually went to the 'From A' team, and to driver Hideki Okada.
