Toyota Australia AE86 vs. GT86 Gymkhana style

Late last year, Toyota Australia shut down its Melbourne factory. It was here that they once built and assembled the Camry, most of them destined for export to the Middle-East. This was a historical place actually as the plant was the first in the world to build Toyota cars outside of Japan.

While this was sad news, Toyota Australia did what countless carnuts would do if they had access to a huge property and buildings: major shenanigans!

Toyota called upon its Genuine Parts Drift Ambassador, Beau Yates, to put his gorgeous classic highly-desirable AE86 up against his current GT86 in a little drift competition that takes the cars through the buildings and the grounds.
