Toyota owned in the 80's and early 90's when they ran Corolla and GT-4 Celica in the WRC events. They are not new at it.

Actually the top Subie driver is kicking everyone's ass. Even the new Subie driver this year was right behind the Evo driver in a bunch of the rallies.

Also, the new rally Evo is nasty w/ the wing up against the rear window. puke

that car looks like a revamped Matrix (which i know and you know the matrix is called the corolla sport wagon in jap.)

i love the front end but they kinda crapped out on the rear. the front bumper looks like a drift kit, which i think the celica should have too. thumbsup grin spineyes (but call it the powerslide kit) rofl
