Dynojet Race Team has revealed the first details on their own version of Avensis BTCC car. Their model will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged power unit adapted from one of Toyota’s road-going range. With the help of a turbocharger and a number of internal revisions, the team hopes to boost power output from around 140 HP in road specification to 300-plus HP.
Dynojet Race Team chief Frank Wrathall Snr said: "The Avensis has been designed to the ‘Next Generation Touring Car’ rules, which means we could have opted for the stock TOCA engine, however we were enormously impressed by the plans put forward by X CTech R and felt that this was the right way for us to go, not least because it means our Avensis will be 100 per cent Toyota."
The new Avensis BTCC car will make its debut at the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship scheduled for 3 April at Brands Hatch, Kent.
