SEMA 2011: Toyota Yaris B-Spec Club Racer

The first race car built for competition in the U.S. from the new 2012 Yaris SE.

Set to compete in the SCCA B-spec class race category next year, those lucky enough to be heading to SEMA 2011 next week will get a chance to see the Le Mans GT-One inspired Yaris before it gets taken to the limit by Action Sports Star and BMX legend Jamie Bestwick. The 3-door hatch, based on the all-new second generation 2012 Yaris, has been stripped down and fitted with a race-spec steering wheel, bucket racing seat and roll cage; performance upgrades have also been made to the chassis and engine.

Built by SportsCar Magazine, it is hoped the B-Spec Club Racer will get to compete in the 2012 SCCA National Championship Runoffs, held at the Road America circuit in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
