TOYOTA has Partnered with #GRIDLIFE to Bring a Stacked Lineup to the #GRIDLIFE ATL Festival!

[08/13/19 - GRIDLIFE HQ - Chicago]

The team at GRIDLIFE is excited to have Toyota join the party at #GRIDLIFE ATL festival , August 23- 25 at Road Atlanta! For their inaugural activation at a GRIDLIFE Festival, Toyota is bringing an impressive lineup of vehicles almost as long as our AFTERGRID music lineup!

Let’s start with the Toyota booth display vehicles:

  • 2020 GR Supra

  • C-HR R-Tuned

  • 2020 86 GT with TRD Handling Package

  • 2020 Camry TRD 

  • Avalon TRD Pro Concept 

  • Two custom Sienna builds: “The Glamper” & “The Tailgater”

Let’s get into cars that are going on track!

Toyota Racing Formula Drift Pro driver, Ken Gushi, will be taking some grip laps on the legendary Road Atlanta circuit during the GRIDLIFE Time Attack sessions in the Avalon TRD Pro Concept. Check out the Avalon TRD Pro in action in this “Drift My Dad” Video! Between track sessions it will be serviced out of the Toyota Racing Experience activation area.

The next Toyota Racing driver needs no introduction to the GRIDLIFE family. The very first Formula D Pro driver to ever come to a GRIDLIFE festival, Ryan Tuerck, will be sending it into the keyhole all weekend in Toyota’s Corolla Hatchback Drift Demo car built by Papadakis Racing.

if we’re really lucky, we’ll get to witness history at #GRIDLIFE ATL, because Ryan won’t be the only Formula Drift Pro driving a Drift-spec Corolla: Fredric Aasbø will also be bombing the course in his FD-spec Corolla Hatchback Pro Competition car! We’ll see if we can get these drivers doing some tandem action during #GRIDLIFE Drift.

But wait, there’s more.

Toyota is bringing something special to fans at #GRIDLIFE ATL festival this year. Toyota has provided GRIDLIFE with a fleet of new Toyota Siennas to serve as the Official GRIDLIFE Shuttle Service for the weekend. Operating like a “hop on, hop off” service, these Siennas will be picking up attendees down in the pro-paddock, and providing a lift and some A/C around the festival. 

Be sure to stop by the Toyota Racing Experience booth in the pro paddock during #GRIDLIFE ATL Festival, Aug 23 - 25, at Road Atlanta to get some swag, chat with the drivers, take a peek into the vehicles. Then hop into a Sienna shuttle to get some prime viewing up top to see Gushi and Tuerck ripping around the track all weekend.
