Champion Drifter Beau Yates has his eyes set on the new 86 for the upcoming drift season. Beau kicked of his professional career in the Toyota 86 Sprinter, and actually took out the 2006 Drift Australia Championship. He has recently been competing in the Drift Series at the World Time Attack Challenge where came in 1st place in 2010, and 3rd in 2011.
Beau’s relationship with Toyota has gone from strength to strength and with the release of the 86, there was more of a reason to have Beau be part of this epic release. Beau was invited to participate in the official Toyota Media day and Promo where he was the designated driver taking media and officials on an intense test drive!
If all goes to plan, this Toyota 86 GTS sporting a full TRD enhancement kit will be competing at the 2013 World Time Attack Challenge Drift Series. See Beau Yates and the Toyota 86 GTS TRD at MotorEx 12 this weekend!
