Toyota Racing Development has revealed its contingency awards program for customer race teams competing with the GR Supra GT4 race car in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge and Pirelli GT4 America competition beginning in 2021.

Incentives for race teams competing in both series includes $3,000 for first place, $2,000 for second place and $1,000 for third place.

TRD will also award a $7,500 prize to customer teams who win an overall driver’s title and $5,000 to race teams who are a part of an overall manufacturer’s championship.

“TRD is thrilled to announce our contingency awards program for race teams competing with the GR Supra GT4 beginning in 2021,” said TRD general manager Tyler Gibbs.

“We’ve had a lot of interest in the program and are now offering not only a competitive payout for on-track success, but also valued at-track support to customer race teams as we anticipate the GR Supra GT4 hitting the track in the coming months.”

Teams running the GR Supra GT4 will also receive a 10 percent discount on all spare parts, options and accessories that are purchased along with the race car.

TRD is set to provide support to customer race teams at all IMSA and SRO events that includes a parts truck and a systems engineer on-site.

Toyota Gazoo Racing-Latin America purchased the first customer GR Supra GT4 race car in September, which will be run by Riley Motorsports in Pilot Challenge.

Additional teams are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
