Fans will be offered a look inside Toyota’s global racing program in a special documentary premiering Tuesday on Fox Sports.

Hosted by Supercars TV talent Chad Neylon, the 60-minute production is the work of Neil Crompton’s AirTime Media.

Toyota is a partner of the Supercars Championship through its 86 Racing Series support class, which in 2020 enters its fifth season.

The documentary will acquaint Australians with Toyota’s Gazoo Racing brand, which was introduced to the local market in 2018.

Globally, last year Toyota claimed the FIA World Endurance Championship, FIA World Rally Championship, NASCAR Sprint Cup and Super GT and Super Formula titles.

Neylon takes viewers to the world-famous Mt Fuji Speedway in Japan, for the annual Toyota Gazoo Racing Festival. 

In addition to features on the Toyota LMP1 and WRC cars, the program follows the story of 2019 Toyota 86 Series Kaizen Award winner, Lachlan Gibbons.

The 23-year-old Sydney driver won a money-can’t-buy experience to race in the Toyota 86 feature race held at the festival.

Fellow Australian Will Brown - the 2016 Toyota 86 Racing Series winner - and Kiwi international Nick Cassidy are among others to feature.

‘Toyota Gazoo Racing - Pushing the limits for better’ will air on Tuesday March 24 at 7:30 EDT on Fox Sports 506 and Kayo Sports.
