A brief history
One of the most exciting additions to the FIA R3 category, the Toyota GT86 CS-R3 made its public debut performing safety car duties at the 2014 Rallye Deutschland. Full FIA homologation was achieved in the second half of 2015 with the car making its competitive debut in the UK at the Mid-Wales stages in March ’16, driven by Top Gear presenter Chris Harris.
Developed by Toyota Motorsport GmbH (TMG) the GT86 CS-R3 provides drive to the rear wheels through a sequential shift six-speed transmission and motorsport limited slip rear differential with a range of final drive ratio’s. Throughout its development, TMG focused on reducing mass to meet the R3 categories minimum weight limit whilst delivering safety, reliability, high performance, low running costs and and engaging great fun driving experience.
The Rally Prep team competed on a limited programme of British Championship events in 2016 while developing the car for the unique challenges presented by the British stages, and showing the car at prestigious events such as the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power, Goodwood Festival of Speed, Speed Weekend Northern Ireland and Rally Day.
The season included three wins from three starts in the BRC, the CS-R3’s first overall rally win on the Ulster National, becoming 2016 BRC R3 Champions, and concluded with an invite from IMS to provide safety ‘zero car’ duties as the final stage sweeping vehicle on Wales Rally GB. Part of this role included being the first rally car to grace the roads of Chester in 20 years as the event returned to the famous city, crossing the ceremonial ramp in the city centre ahead of the main field as the spectacular culmination of Chester Rally Week.
The GT86 CS-R3 is available in comprehensive kit form to allow teams or individuals to assemble their own car to full FIA standards. The extremely comprehensive kit a fully fabricated bodyshell, seam welded, roll structure installed, fully lightened, complete with all closures/lights/trim and presented in primer ready for top coat paint to be applied. The motor is fully built, run in and complete with mapped Motec M150 management system, sealed tagged and ready to install. A full motorsport specification tailor-made wiring harness is supplied, labelled in detailed. Fully terminated and the Motec body control units are programmed and ready to work from first switch on. Reiger three way adjustable suspension is supplied in either gravel or asphalt specification, including motorsport specification longitudinal and lateral locating arms with top quality spherical bearings.
The CS-R3 kit includes everything required to build your FIA specification car with the exception of seats, harnesses and extinguishers, which we can supply to suit customers individual preferences.
A comprehensive build manual details the assembly sequence for the vehicle with photographic and descriptive guides to the whole process. Specific part numbers for every component match up with labels on the corresponding parts meaning that nothing can be fitted incorrectly or in error, from installing the pre-formed and shaped brake hard lines to the rubber grommets sealing various bodyshell apertures – it really could not be made simpler!
The Rally Prep team will prepare a turn key, ready to compete GT86 CS-R3 to the same fastidious standard as the British Rally Championship in 2016. The car will be tailored to suit individual owners preferences with colour choice, seat and harness selection and a range of other variables taken into account to ensure the vehicle is a perfect fit for the owners intended usage.
