Completely sideways with Neal Bates in a Toyota Celica RA40

Submitted by on March 7, 2014

Motorsport Retro rides on board with captain sideways, Neal Bates in his supremely fast Toyota Celica RA40 classic rally car.

Neal recently won the classic class and came second outright….yes second outright, at Rally Victoria, a round of the Australian Rally Championship.

Suffice to say that we enjoyed our one lap stint, in this raw, well balanced, hard revving, four cylinder beast.

Neal looked like he was having fun too, a man at ease with his hands at 90 degrees.

You can see Neal, the Toyota Celica and many of Toyota’s racing treasures at Top Gear Festival Sydney this weekend at Sydney Motorsport Park
