2020 Toyota Supra Launch RACING IN THE “SUNSHINE”

By: Cathy Droz

I couldn’t help but think about the Garth Stein book and the movie, “Racing in the Rain” when I entered the West Track of the Bondurant Driving School in Chandler, Arizona. Of course, here in Arizona the sun was shining, and the temperature was over 80 degrees with no rain in sight. I also though how lucky I am to have the opportunity to experience racing the 2020 Toyota SUPRA sitting next to, and being coached by, a professional racecar driver and team of experts. These are the professionals that trained the likes of Christian Bale for his role in Ford v. Ferrari movie. I’m not training for face time live; no less a movie, but Toyota feels if the automotive journalist gets behind the wheel of the vehicle they are writing about, the more accurate account for the review. The fun factor doesn’t hurt either.

Besides the PR crew that set it up, the Toyota technical team and the Dan Garner driving school team I got to meet Faye Hadley, from their pitt crew ( pistonsandpixiedust) and all girls garage. What a great team, event and car. The video says it all but here are some of the goodies that make this 2020 Supra Edition the best.
