Competition comeback for TGR-E United with the GR Supra GT4

26.03.2022: This Saturday (26 March), TGR-E United will celebrate its competition comeback on the Nürburgring Nordschleife following a two-year break. The team, consisting of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Europe (TGR-E) employees, will step up to the GR Supra GT4 and take part

This Saturday (26 March), TGR-E United will celebrate its competition comeback on the Nürburgring Nordschleife following a two-year break.

The team, consisting of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Europe (TGR-E) employees, will step up to the GR Supra GT4 and take part in selected rounds of the Nürburgring Endurance Series (NLS) as well as in the Nürburgring 24 Hours.

The 430hp car will be driven by Adrian Brusius and Finn Unteroberdörster at all events, with the full line-up due to be announced at a later date. Adrian and Finn have already been part of the team when TGR-E United won its class in the 2019 Nürburgring 24 Hours.

TGR-E United is made up of more than 30 employees from eleven nationalities who take part on a voluntary basis to experience tasks which are different from their everyday roles within the company. The members come from various departments and prepare the GR Supra GT4 in a dedicated workshop at the Cologne facility before handling all aspects of team operations at the Nürburgring.

Among them is three-time Le Mans winner and 2018-2019 World Endurance Champion Kazuki Nakajima. The newly-appointed Vice Chairman of TGR-E, however, refrains from taking the wheel himself. Instead, Kazuki will participate as a team member in selected races, contributing to the preparation and operation of the GR Supra GT4.

The story of TGR-E United

TGR-E United started in 2013 with a close-to-production GT86 CS-V3 car and immediately began fighting for victories in the Nürburgring Endurance Series’ V3 class before stepping up a gear and upgrading to the GT86 CS-Cup car. Year by year, TGR-E United refined their team work and showed ever-increasing performance, regularly beating established motorsport teams and their specialised personnel on the challenging Nürburgring Nordschleife.

This ultimately lead to the team’s biggest success. In 2019 TGR-E United claimed victory in the Nürburgring 24 Hours’ popular SP3 class on only their second outing in the race.


The win was a well-deserved reward for a dedicated team of volunteers who reached the top powered by their passion for motorsport. While the 2019 24h Nürburgring winning car enjoys its well-deserved retirement in TGR-E’s Motorsport Museum, TGR-E United will start a new chapter this weekend with the GR Supra GT4.
