  • Our finish line is their start line: The story behind this chicken poop-powered Toyota GR Corolla protecting racing engines' green future

    Thailand’s 10-hour Idemitsu Super Endurance Southeast Asia Trophy is our region’s most interesting race you’ve never heard of. Think of it as the Thai version of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but with familiar B/C segment cars – regular cars that make up our region’s motoring landscape. Once again, Toyota Chairman Akio Toyoda participated under his ‘Morizo’ pseudonym. He raced under his self-funded ORC Rookie Racing Team, in the same modified Toyota GR Corolla that burns hydrogen instead of petrol. O

  • Powered by biowaste - Chairman Akio Toyoda is flying down to race this H2-burning Toyota GR Corolla at Thailand's 10-hour endurance race

    One year after signing a deal with Thailand’s Charoen Pokphand Group (CP) - one of the world’s largest food companies – to generate hydrogen from waste collected from the CP Group’s chicken farms, Toyota will now demonstrate its practical approach to carbon neutrality by racing a hydrogen-burning internal combustion engine Toyota GR Corolla. Unlike the fuel-cell electric Toyota Mirai that combines hydrogen with oxygen to generate electricity to power the car’s drive motor, this GR Corolla retain

  • Kaizen in action: 2023 Toyota GR Corolla updated in Japan with tweaks so small you can't see, but can certainly feel

    It takes a fanatical fastidiousness to notice how even the size of a bolt affects performance, but that's what the people of Toyota Gazoo Racing (GR) are accustomed to, resulting in the upgraded Toyota GR Corolla. Two things were changed to the all-wheel drive monster: the bolts on the front and rear suspension members as well as the steering gearbox, and the shape of the front airduct. On the front suspension and steering gearbox, the bolts are now ribbed, while the fasteners at the back got a

  • They don't make them like they used to, except Toyota with the GR Corolla and GR86

    Time magazine labelled 2020 as the “worst year ever” for most of us alive today. We witnessed the widespread cancellation of gatherings, global lockdowns, and the far-reaching consequences these had on the economy. Our lifestyles have probably been changed as well. It’s a year to forget for many, but in the midst of all of it, the automotive world was gifted a rally homologation special – the Toyota GR Yaris. It was a car that made zero financial sense. Toyota, as a company, could’ve carried on

  • Review: The Toyota GR Corolla is the result of when heart and soul meets science

    Unique words tell a lot about a society. Have you heard of kaffeklatsch? It's a German slang for 'gossip over coffee'. Oddly specific as it is, it makes sense that it's coined by the people who invented drip coffee making, spilling a different kind of beans while another brews over... Fly to the other side of the world and thumb through their no less enigmatic dictionary, and you'll note that somewhere along the ideas of 'dear wife' and 'cherished pet', the Japanese have a place in the pages for

  • Watch: Toyota GR Corolla challenges an old KE10 in newest commercial

    Commercials and advertisements are often seen as an annoyance but sometimes, there are a few gems that pop up that you simply don't want to skip. Take this latest commercial of the Toyota GR Corolla from the United States. The newest commercial depicting the GR Corolla is the final instalment of the Toyota GR model lineup ad campaign for America. The trilogy of ads pokes fun at the whole process of making a commercial. It goes through the process of the pitch, the focus group, and finally the sh

  • Back from the dead, this Toyota GR Corolla made history as world's first liquid hydrogen racer to complete an endurance race

    Talk about a story for the ages – Rookie Racing's Toyota GR Corolla has made history as the world's first liquid hydrogen-fuelled car to complete a race by successfully crossing the finish line at Round 2 of the Super Taikyu's 24 hours of Fuji this past weekend. Hydrogen (H2) as fuel is not new per se, as Toyota has fielded H2-combusting Corolla race cars since 2021. The main difference between now and then is the trialling of liquid hydrogen, a tech that promises higher energy density, longer d

  • Only 1 car is available for every 10 buyers of Toyota GR Corolla in NZ - 2nd round of balloting begins

    New Zealand is a very small car market. Selling less than 120,000 cars a year, the New Zealand car market is treated by car manufacturers as an extension of Australia (annual TIV of slightly over 1 million cars). Despite its small size, NZ is home to a very vibrant enthusiast car market. Its trade borders are open (at least for cars) and vehicle importation is simple. This explains why Toyota has given New Zealand a disproportionately high 150 cars allocation for the Toyota GR Corolla. Orders co

  • This Toyota GR Corolla is the world's first liquid hydrogen race car; faster refueling, longer range

    Just a year or so on after development began, Toyota has hit the track with a GR Corolla fueled by liquid hydrogen – marking the car's first public appearance, and the first time ever for a manufacturer's vehicle fueled as such to hit the racetrack. Having made its track debut on 23-February at Fuji Speedway, this GR Corolla is different because previous cars (like the one that raced in Buriram this past December) used gaseous hydrogen. This GR Corolla ran three sessions on the day, simulating r
