Toyota Celica (T160) General Information

Strangely, when in early group A the Toyota Celica came closest to break the Lancia domination, its group N equivalent failed bitterly. The car was rarely used in group N for a start - the ST165 that is, we couldn't even find a significant WRC entry of a group N Celica ST185. With the ST165 only one driver had a serious attempt at winning the group N World crown. This was Alessandro Fassina in 1991, who managed to retire with mechanical problems from every single rally he did with the car. Not surprisingly Fassina was never seen again in a Toyota after that year. Similar was the experience of Julian Reynolds in the BRC 1994, retiring from every single event with mechanical problems, he left the car to Mark Lovell on the last round, the Manx, and surprisingly Lovell even finished, but was then beaten in group N by Mark Higgins in the only FWD 1600cc Honda Civic, so still embarrassment for the Toyota!
