Victorian teen confirms Toyota 86 return

Nic Carroll

Victorian teenager Nic Carroll will return to the Toyota 86 Racing Series for his second season this weekend.

Carroll debuted in the one-make category last year alongside his Formula Ford campaign, with the 18-year old finishing up 14th in the Toyota 86 standings.

More recently, the Melbourne-based driver competed in the Hi-Tec Oils Bathurst 6 Hour, sharing a car with fellow 86 racer Liam McAdam.

“Having the experience of the tracks and knowledge of the car leading into this year’s series gives me confidence and a sense of what to expect ahead of the first round at Phillip Island this weekend,” said Carroll.

Carroll’s eye-catching green and black liveried 86 will feature backing from Auto Approve, Wilson Security, Apex Steel, Dutton Garage and Gibson Freight.

Toyota recently announced that Jason Bargwanna will serve as a full-season mentor for the series alongside a roster of high-profile invited drivers.

The Toyota 86 Racing Series gets underway at the WD-40 Phillip Island 500 with two practice sessions on Friday.
