The goal is to provide a cost friendly car for amateur and professionals alike to be able to gain experience in SCCA racing. The car features graphics paying tribute to the 1998 Toyota LeMans pole-winning GT-One racer, as Toyota prepares for its return to the famed racing series in 2012.

Bestwick, a seven-time X Games champion and former Dew Tour Athlete of the Year, expressed his excitement at a press conference at the SEMA Show in the Toyota Manufactures exhibit. The goal for the team is to qualify for the famed SCCA National Championship Runoffs in 2012, to be held at the world-renowned Road America circuit in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.
