Ogier, Evans and Rovanperä: An exciting new line-up to drive the Toyota Yaris WRC in 2020
Nov. 27, 2019
The Toyota GAZOO Racing World Rally Team is pleased to confirm an exciting, all-new driver line-up for the 2020 season. Six-time FIA World Rally Champion Sébastien Ogier, proven rally winner Elfyn Evans and rising star Kalle Rovanperä will all join the team along with their respective co-drivers.
Hungry to reclaim his crown and add to his tally of 47 victories, the 35-year-old from France has signed with Toyota for the 2020 season, placing his trust in the car and team that won the 2019 drivers' championship with Ott Tänak.
Quotes When I visited Finland for the first time in 2014, Toyota had not yet decided to come back to the WRC. I was so excited because it was my first WRC visit and I stood in the hotel lobby to see the drivers in person. Jari-Matti, then a VW driver, was the first driver to arrive. This was the moment I made the decision to come back; we needed to come back to WRC while such a driver remembered Toyota competing.
