Toyota Celebrity Race

As you all know the Toyota LB Gran Prix has always had a celebrity race before the main event. Now you all also know that the cars in said event have always been Celicas. Now that the Celica has officially been discontinued what car do you think will be the one that replaces it in the celebrity portion of the weekend. Do you guys think it will be the Scion Tc, Corolla XR-S, Matrix XR-S? Or will Toyota continue using the celica?

Suddenly the celebrity race takes on a new importance. Which car will be crowned the Celica sucessor? I'm guessing Solara. But the TC is, unfortunately, a strong contender.

I'd bet anything it'll be the TC. Toyota's put so much backing behind this it's unbelievable. I wish they'd stick with the celica's though. frown

if it continues, i would think..nothing
there are no other toyota's that have the same setup as a celica and wouldn't be meant to race.

OK, here's my take. There'll be a separate, new entry for Scion (the TC), and a Solara.

What if they continue to still use the celicas even if they are discontinued. I doubt it, I'd say the TC.

They will use Celicas. They aren't selling them in the states, but they are still making them...my guess

It would be the Corolla XRS. Didja know in WRC, Toyota isn't in teh first division, but the second. They use some variant of the Corolla which has typical AWd and a fuckin sweet engine.

Imagine if the XRS had AWD and was t/c'ed.
