Street-car enthusiasts relished at the spectacle of tuned vehicles ranging from Mitsubishi Evolutions and Honda Civics to Nissan GTR’s and Porsches. With professional tuning garages and mechanics, such as the likes of Tensai Tuning, providing tweaks and twists of suspensions and ECU’s till the very end, the smaller four-cylinder engines definitely gave the larger cars a run for their money.

Being the namesake of the event, the Toyota GT86 TRD category definitely delivered a competitive line-up. Being of both worlds, the cars all shared similar specifications such as power and reduced weight with Toyota Racing Development modifications, however they still held the characteristics of street-cars. Overall, racers were pitted against each other for podium relying mostly on their skill, ability and knowledge of their car.
