Around the timeAkio ToyodaBegan to enter the race with interest in the rally and became the WRC champion four times in January 2014Tommi MakinenI was directly instructed in driving.At this time, the two of them hit it off, and Toyota's feelings for participating in the WRC became stronger.

Toyota new in January 2015World rally carIn 2017, when (WR car) regulations are introduced,1999 Declared to return to WRC for the first time in 18 years[7].. Main market in the European marketCompact carYaris (Japanese name:Vitz) Was used as the base vehicle for the WR car.Official recognitionThe model at the time of application is "NSP131[8]. "

In the summer of 2015フィンランドPopola (Puuppola) The TMR (Tomi Makinen Racing) factory inGermany-Cologne OfTMGDecided to carry out engine development[9].. Since there were only about 15 staff at the time, it started with the recruitment of human resources and the design started in September. Experienced WRC engineers such as Tom Fowler, Simon Career and Mikko Luoch participate in the design and development.[10]In addition, I hired many Finnish engineers and designers who had no experience in motorsports but were good at using the latest technology and tools. In December, the new team structure was publicly announced and became the representative of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing WRT (World Rally Team).Akio ToyodaWas appointed as the team representativeTommi MakinenWas appointed.

On the other hand, Yuvaskilla is an area where many industries with high technology are gathered, such as YarishydraulicMost of the system was carried out by a company that normally manufactures tractors locally, so there were no problems with parts suppliers.

Initially, there was a strong repulsion from inside Toyota to leave WRC to Makinen,Akio ToyodaIt was a system that was not born without his firm determination and the relationship of trust with Makinen. There was also a voice from the outside saying, "Is it okay with Makinen?"GAZOO RacingThere was also a part in the press conference to announce the comment to deny it[14].. We have a wide range of talented people with skill and passion from over 10 countries, regardless of experience in motor sports or industry. Of the total staff, about 1% are Japanese staff, and there are also executives from Japan, the "great skill training department" mechanic, and others who have lived in Finland for some time. McKinen said, "One is to make sure that even the engineers and mechanics who are in their first year are responsible (Responsibility)," and two are "all staff have the same eyes and ears. We promoted team building by protecting the three of "Share information (Transparency)" and "Trust each other as professionals"[15][16].
