Tom Ingram has taken to the wheel of Toyota UK and Speedworks Motorsport’s all-new Corolla for the first time at Oulton Park.
Here’s what Tom had to say after his first run in the car.
“It’s an amazing feeling to get out on-track in the new Corolla. Ever since Toyota officially came on-board late last year, everything we’ve done has been building up to this moment.
“The car looks amazing – which is credit to all the Speedworks boys, who have done a cracking job as always – and it’s an absolute honour to be representing Toyota GB in this new British-built beast. Today is essentially a shakedown test, but we’ll truly be putting the Corolla through its paces in Spain next week and I can’t wait to see what it can do!”
The team now moves on to Spain’s Circuit Calafat for more extensive running next week, with its pre-season testing schedule also including Brands Hatch and the traditional BTCC Season Launch test.
