While the Argentine motorsport continues convulsed with the announcement of the arrival of Toyota al Road Tourism from 2022, the Japanese brand began to shape the team that will officially represent it in the popular category. The first confirmed pilot would be Matias Rossi, TC champion in 2014 and away from the specialty since the end of 2019.
"It is a fact, Rossi will be in the team", a source told Automundo shortly after confirming the landing of the Japanese company to the TC world after the OK that received its request from the board of directors of the Road Tourism Corridors Association so you can compete with a Camry.
As is currently happening in the Super TC2000, Rossi would have as a squire Julian Santero. This rules out the possibility of seeing the Brazilian in action in the teceísta universe Rubens Barrichello, another star of the brand, although his presence could take place in a competition with invited drivers.
Rossi's return to TC would make him rethink his continuity in one of the categories he competes today. The StockCar Brazil, where he has not had good results, it would be the championship that he would put aside.
The structure that the team will be in charge of is also practically defined. With the Toyota GAZOO Racing Argentina focused on other categories and on the development of the Toyota corolla tcr, everything would fall into the Jakos brothers, servicing the Toyota Hilux of the TC Pick-up.
