This is the hot hatch we all need.
When racing technology trickles down to spice up even the dullest of family transit solutions, it suddenly becomes a lot easier to justify the paychecks of those maniacs who drive around in circles for fun. The Toyota Yaris is the latest car to be submitted to the whims of the race track, and with any luck the next model will carry over some of the character that this rambunctious little racing machine has. Here we see what is usually a polite little hatchback unleashing some pent-up anger as it prepares to race in the 2017 WRC series.
Watch as it trains to take on the competition by soaking up jumps and shoveling around earth with prolonged power slides.
