2016 Toyota GAZOO Racing Festival: TommykairaZZ to undergo first drift run in Japan

GLM will be participating for the first time at the 2016 Toyota GAZOO Racing Festival, which commences on November 27 at Fuji Speedway. It will be conducting a drift run of its TommykairaZZ electric sports car.

The TommykairaZZ is the first electric sports car in Japan. It succeeded the prototype of the TommykairaZZ, a sports car that was sold around 20 years ago as a gasoline model, and features new designs all around including its body and powertrain. The TommykairaZZ has garnered tons of interest in Japan as well as around the world for its lightweight, high-rigidity aluminum frame, exclusively designed motor that offers tremendous acceleration of 0-100km/h in 3.9 seconds, and direct handling.

The drift run of the TommykairaZZ will be conducted at Drift Experience, an exclusive venue for drifting, by professional drifter Masato Kawabata. Four drift runs will be held throughout the day at 8:30am, 12:50pm, 1:55pm and 3pm with each run lasting around five minutes.
