Elfyn joins Toyota Gazoo Racing WRT for 2020
After many successful years with the British M-Sport team, Elfyn is moving on to partner with previous team mate Sébastien Ogier at the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing World Rally Team.
While recognising the challenges that come with learning both a new car and a new team environment, Elfyn was optimistic about the future.
Joining TOYOTA GAZOO Racing is a great opportunity for me and I’m really excited to get going. The team has been very successful since it came into the sport three years ago and I’m looking forward to be a part of it. Tommi has been very successful as a driver himself and knows what it takes to perform at this level. It’s been great to deal with him so far, and I’m looking forward to getting to know the team better as we ramp up towards the start of next season. 2019 was a mixed season for us – missing three rallies due to injury being the low point – but there were some strong results and performances as we competed for stage wins and podiums. Now I want to take that further, to be winning rallies more often and seeing what’s possible in this new chapter. It will be nice to work with Sébastien again too: With the experience and success he’s had, he’s a great guy to have in the team.
