It’s not about winning, it’s about conquering your fears.
If you're expecting to hear some sort of Rookie Of The Year story where the underaged challenger, against all odds, becomes a champion, we're afraid we're gonna have to let you down. The FT-86 Toyota and Gazoo entered in the DMV 250-Meilen-Rennen finished 120th, six laps behind the victor (an SLS AMG, in case you were curious) with a fastest lap of 10:26.384. (You can check out the FT-86's official results here.)
That said, expect the FT-86's official N-ring time to be significantly faster than that; pretty much every car in the race pulled a "fastest lap" well behind their official N-ring times. (The winning SLS, for example, featured a best lap of 8:10.968, which was also the fastest lap turned by anyone in the race; however, Sport Auto drove one around the 'Ring in 7:40.) So don't look at the FT-86's performance as unimpressive. Instead, be impressed that Toyota's handbuilt prototype was able to race for 250 miles without breaking down...or losing any camouflage.
