Why Toyota Competes In The WRC
The real world is full of vastly different roads, from rough, uneven, unpaved roads, to smoothly paved mountain roads, to roads with icy patches hidden under new-fallen snow. Well, learning about them is essential to Developing Top Quality Cars.
Major Reasons Why Toyota decided to take on the WRC:
- To achieve their goal of Manufacturing Ever-Better Cars.
- To train people in extreme conditions.
- Developed technologies at a high level.
- Use the knowledge and experience gained as feedback in the development of new production vehicles.
“I Am really looking forward to going back to Kenya honestly. I was at the event last year and I had an amazing experience! WRC in Kenya has always been an incredible experience for the past 30 years and I am looking forward to going back to it again.” Said, Craig Breen
“Rally is all about new adventures but in Kenya it was a whole different new experience for me! You know the location, the scenery, the wildcats, everything was new and felt a bit strange in the beginning. But despite the challenges and the roughness we managed to have good fun and I personally enjoyed the rally.” Said Thierry Niuvile
Kenya is said to have the roughest and challenging rally recorded in the WRC Calendar. A little rain can result in muddy roads hence making the rally even more challenging, for example, last year (2021).
Most rallies end with a Special Stage, called the “Power Stage,” where the top five contestants earn bonus points. The awards ceremony follows the Power Stage.
Whatever the weather WRC Safari rally 2022 promises to be better and bigger this year!
