2019 Toyota Supra Racing Review & Changes – The revived Toyota Supra is one of the most hyped cars come out of the ten years, but no one might have estimated this. The new Supra will race in the NASCAR Xfinity Series beginning with the year-opening up race in Daytona, Florida, on February 16, 2019. The Toyota Supra has really a racing pedigree, but this icon of Japanese performance is definitely faster and the Furious than Ricky Bobby. They have never experienced any prior association with NASCAR; Toyota has only been racing given that 2007, long following the Supra gone out of production. Co-created with BMW, the new Supra is expected to be a sports car far more suited to road programs than NASCAR ovals.
At the exact same time, the Supra has much more performance believability than the Camry it can change in NASCAR’s Xfinity Series, exactly where Ford and Chevrolet field NASCAR versions of the Mustang and Camaro, respectively. NASCAR racers are also objective built, with only badging and a thin veneer of exterior styling to tie up them to the production models they’re designed to represent. It doesn’t make a difference what badge is on the car, truly. Toyota did not connect any practical specifics, but racing guidelines imply the Supra will feature a NASCAR-distinct V8 engine and chassis design. A hit release explained Toyota Racing Development and the automaker’s U.S. Calty design studio “scaled the Supra to fit inside NASCAR’s specifications for race vehicle entries” in the Xfinity Series. Thanks to the NASCAR racer and the recent GR Supra concept car, we have a reasonable idea of what the new Supra will appear like, but other specifics are hard to find.
The Xfinity Series is NASCAR’s second-tier series, seated under the Monster Energy Cup Series in prestige. Toyota continues running the Camry in the Cup Series. Considering that Cup Series cars are normally a bit faster than their Xfinity Series counterparts, the Camry may possibly outperform the Supra – probably the only time which will ever be the case. Toyota will also continue to keep running the Tundra pickup truck in NASCAR’s Outdoor camping World Truck Series. Yup, NASCAR has a race series for pickup trucks.
In the meantime, Toyota announced via Twitter that the road-heading version of the new Supra can look at the 2018 Goodwood Festivity of Speed in the U.K. The celebration works July 12-15, but Toyota hasn’t given a date for the physical appearance. It’s also uncertain whether or not the car will probably be fully disclosed, or whether or not Toyota brings a hidden prototype.
