Toyota Motorsport's GmbH (TMG) 86 Cup Car will make its North American debut in the Pirelli World Challenge (PWC) racing series at Utah Motorsports Campus in Tooele, Utah, August 11-13.

Entered in the TCA class, the 86 Cup Car will battle in the PWC's double-header race weekend and is scheduled to compete in the two Utah PWC events taking place outside Salt Lake City.

The TMG 86 Cup Car will be driven by veteran road racer Craig Stanton, a former GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series GT and Continental Tire GS class champion with over 30 years of driving experience, and fielded by the Dan Gardner Spec (DG-Spec) Racing team.

DG-Spec previously won the Pirelli World Challenge TC class championship with the Scion tC in 2010 and has also competed in GRAND-AM and other sports car and endurance series.

The decision to enter the TMG 86 Cup Car in PWC was birthed in the success of another Toyota 86. After a stock 86 with TRD parts and accessories bested the entire field at the local Spring Fling Autocross event in Southern California in March, Toyota officials began looking for additional opportunities to highlight the prowess of the Toyota sports car that also competes in Formula Drift.
