The new Toyota GT86 and Subaru BRZ haven't been visible for long, but the marques' newest sports car scored a major coup on the weekend when it won two separate classes at the 40th ADAC 24 Hours Nürburgring race, including the V3 class for production machines.
In all, it was a huge validation of the handling and horsepower of the new machine on what is generally regarded as the most demanding racetrack in the world.
The GAZOO Racing Toyota GT86 took the win in the SP3 class, completing 129 laps of the legendary circuit, finishing in 46th place overall.
In the "close-to-production" V3 class, first place was taken by the Toyota Swiss Racing GT86, completing 119 laps, and finishing in 78th place.
