Last weekend, the GR Supra GT4 celebrated its 50th podium finish since its debut in June 2020. During the course of the weekend, TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Sweden celebrated a victory and a second place in GT4 Scandinavia while TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Germany finished third in Sunday’s DTM Trophy race.
TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Sweden showed a strong performance in only their second race weekend in GT4 Scandinavia. Hans Holmlund and Emil Skarås qualified for pole position in both races at the Gelleråsen Arena, finishing as winners in the first and second place in the second race. At the championship’s halfway-mark, Hans and Emil lead the drivers’ standings in the Pro-Am class in the championship.
Third place in the DTM Trophy
At the third round of the DTM Trophy, TOYTO GAZOO Racing Germany achieved its second podium finish of the season: At the Nürburgring, Nico Verdonck drove to third place in the GR Supra GT4 on Sunday. In Saturday’s race, the Belgian finished sixth thus climbing to fourth in the drivers’ championship.
The second GR Supra GT4 did not take the start at the Nürburgring. Already on Thursday Ring Racing had to withdraw Stéphane Kox’s car from their home race. The reason was a contact of the Dutch driver with a person who was tested positive with Covid-19. Despite having a negative test herself, Stéphane abandoned the journey to the Nürburgring and returned home before arriving at the track.
Strong performance for GT86 CS-R3 in Germany
At the second round of the German Rally Championship (DRM), junior driver Jonas Ertz and co-driver Maresa Lade underlined their rising form. The junior team finished sixth in the competitive RC4 class at the ADAC Saarland-Pfalz Rally driving their Toyota GT86 CS-R3.
