Toyota's team that competes in the World Rally Championship, TOYOTA GAZOO Racing, aims to continue where it left off at the 2020 FIA World Rally Championship. The goal of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing will be to win again in the Estonian Rally to be held on September 4-6.
Holding the leadership with 21 points in the Brands Championship, Toyota also has the upper hand in the Drivers' Championship. Sébastien Ogier is in first place in the championship, Elfyn Evans is second and Kalle Rovanperä is in fourth place.
As it is known, the COVID-19 outbreak caused the season to be interrupted. Among the three pilots who successfully started their first season with the Toyota Yaris WRC, Evans won the rally in Sweden and Ogier in Mexico.
The Estonian Rally has just been added to the revised 2020 calendar and security measures have been increased with tightening protocols. Although Estonia will host one leg of the WRC for the first time, all manufacturers participated in the promotional event held last year.
There are fast and fluid dirt roads in the stages with many hills and jumps. Teams made their preparations for this rally by training in Finland and Estonia as the restrictions were eased.
In the Estonian Rally, which will start with a short opening stage on Friday evening, the service area is located at Raadi Airport. Most of the stages in the rally will be held on Saturday and Sunday with a total of 232.64 km. The rally center will be located in Tartu, Estonia's second largest city. - Hibya News Agency
