"Corolla Coaster" Auto Performance mag article
Here's an interesting article about Toyota Team GB.

Written by Darrell Dixon, and published in March 1985 in Auto Performance magazine.

It describes TTGB development of the TE71, AE86 and Supra 2.8i for rallying.

Enjoy.

I've also created a .pdf file, but the quality wasn't quire so good as the jpgs. You can downoload it from > here <

Glad you enjoyed it.

I thought it was worth the effort, as I haven't seen too many magazine articles that relate to the AE86.

I can still remember seeing TV footage of Per Eklund driving the Grp.A AE86 on the British Open Rally Championship. Absolutely incredible!

I hope that footage is still around.

I've got loads of old car mags from the 70's and 80's in the loft.
Mostly, Car and Car Conversions.
A great mag for Escort competion mods, in those days.
