About The Toyota Racing Series
Delivering fast, competitive racing, New Zealand’s premier single-seater category attracts drivers from around the globe. The Toyota Racing Series (TRS) is New Zealand’s fastest racing category providing winter training in a southern hemisphere summer.

The series attracts Premier Gold Star status along with the New Zealand Grand Prix title, one of only two FIA-sanctioned Grand Prix race events outside of Formula One, making it a truly world class motorsport event.
TRS cars lap New Zealand circuits faster than an NZV8 and more than six seconds faster than Formula Ford. A level of investment unmatched by any other manufacturer demonstrates Toyota’s commitment to finding the next generation of racers and giving them the best possible stepping stone to the next level of their careers.
