Toyota Corolla GR vs Subaru BRZ: Track Test

Toyota Corolla GR vs Subaru BRZ: Track Test

Life is not fair – One Direction refuses to reform, we can’t find a Caramac bar for love nor money and the US gets a pile of cool cars we, in the UK, don’t. To prove the problem is real and requires drastic and immediate rectification, Jethro and Jack gathered a Toyota GR Corolla (that shares much of its running gear and underpinnings with the sublime GR Yaris) and a Subaru BRZ (that shares almost all its underpinnings with the sublime Toyota GR86) and took them to a racetrack in Arizona. The mission? To construct a watertight argument for why both cars should be brought to the UK. Immediately.
