Toyota wins Rally of Sweden

Toyota is back in the game as it fielded its Yaris WRC Car at the opening leg of the 2017 World Rally Championship last January 19-22 at the rally of Monte Carlo. It finished strong in the season opener with an impressive second place overall and clinched the Rally of Sweden. 

Piloted by Jari-Matti Latvala, the Yaris was built by Toyota GAZZO Racing with PIAA as it technical partner. PIAA designed and engineered the lighting systems of the GAZZO Yaris WRC car, using the latest in LED technology. The pod lamps were specially designed to custom fit the GAZZO Yaris and the combined HiD and LED lamps provided by PIAA allowed Team Toyota to competitively negotiate the night stages of the Monte Carlo rally. 

PIAA LED and HID lights provided the necessary illumination during night stages

PIAA has always been committed to providing quality products that drive customer satisfaction with their line of LED headlights and fog lamps. A special beam “cutline” is what differentiates PIAA technology from the competition. The beam of light is clear; and a directional frontal burst is engineered to not inconvenience oncoming motorists. 

Established in 1963 with the commitment to provide the global market with world-class driving lights, PIAA has since become the standard for lighting technology for both consumer and motorsports illumination products. Racing teams such as Subaru Technica International (STI), Mitsubishi Ralliart, Toyota Racing Development (TRD), all use the lighting technology of PIAA for their illumination requirements.
