'GT 86 IS RELIABLE' SHOCK
Toyota coupe runs flawlessly in the Britcar 24Hrs
If you're thinking of investing in a Toyota GT 86, you'll be pleased to know that Toyota's reliability gene has been passed on to the £25k coupe. It ran faultlessly for 512 laps and 1874 miles in last weekend's Britcar 24 Hours at Silverstone despite "having its wheels driven off" by the four-driver team of Chris Hodgetts, Stefan Hodgetts, Travis drummer Neil Primrose and EVO's Richard Meaden.
Gary Blackham of GPRM, who prepared the car, pronounced himself delighted with the car's placing of eighth overall and third in class. "Considering the differential in horsepower between our car and the others, it's a great result. I think the only work we had to do was add about half a litre of oil during the whole race."
