Toyota GR Yaris - FIVEDRIVES


The Toyota GR Yaris needs no introduction - this WRC-inspired hot hatch has set the International motoring media landscape ablaze with its combination of analogue driving dynamics, 'retro' H-pattern manual transmission, driver-selectable AWD and throaty turbocharged 'three-pot' engine.

In anticipation of the car's local launch, Toyota South Africa and Toyota Gazoo Racing South Africa (TGRSA) have partnered up, to provide enthusiasts a sneak peak of the newcomer's dynamic abilities.

The FIVEDRIVES campaign combines Five Iconic locations across South Africa with Five TGRSA ambassadors - putting the GR Yaris through its paces, while giving the motoring public their 'off-the-cuff' feedback on the vehicle.

Part 1: Aldo Scribante & Michael van Rooyen

The iconic Aldo Scribante Raceway located in Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth), played backdrop to the first instalment of the FIVEDRIVES campaign. With multiple high-speed sweeps, off-camber kinks and a fast, flowing design, Aldo Scribante is an excellent test of a vehicle's chassis, transitional behaviour and 'off-corner' grip.

Michael van Rooyen is no stranger to speed, usually found behind the wheel of the TGRSA Corolla Global Touring Car (GTC), high-speed grip-driving is the "Rustenburg Rocket's" speciality. Watch the video for Michael's take on the GR Yaris as we pit it against the championship-leading TGRSA GTC Corolla.

Look out for Part 2; featuring the GR Yaris, in the hands of another renowned TGRSA ambassador and a different Iconic location. #GRYARIS is an award-winning Digital Media, Marketing, and Advertising Company est. 2015, is a Member of the Independent Media Association of South Africa (IMASA), and Brand South Africa's Play Your Part Ambassadors, with a global reach of over 10 million
