Scott Brownlee from Toyota UK told official series website btcc.net "To be able to support the premier British motor sport series with the Avensis was a great opportunity for Toyota to help an ‘old friend’.

Whilst we’ve made no commitment to re-enter the championship with a works team at this time, we will be following the prototype build with great interest and look forward to seeing the car perform on its debut at Brands Hatch in October.”

Following a six week summer break the Dunlop MSA series returns to action at Snetterton in Norfolk this coming weekend (August 6-7) for the 6th meeting of 2010.
