The car, driven by 2018 series runner up Tom Ingram will head to Spain next week to begin a full testing programme before the 2019 season begins on the 6th/7th April at Brands Hatch Indy.

2019 sees Toyota return to the BTCC as a constructor for the first time since the end of 1995, with the new Corolla running in a camouflage livery in testing before a full livery reveal in the coming weeks.

After driving the car for the first time in the shakedown, Ingram said.

“The car looks amazing – which is credit to all the Speedworks boys, who have done a cracking job as always – and it’s an absolute honour to be representing Toyota GB in this new British-built beast. Today is essentially a shakedown test, but we’ll truly be putting the Corolla through its paces in Spain next week and I can’t wait to see what it can do!
