Toyota driver Timo Glock will take a step back into the Japanese manufacturer’s motorsport history later this summer when he gets behind the wheel of the legendary GT-One sportscar at the Nurburgring

Glock will take to the track at the German circuit as part of the annual Old Timer Grand Prix event, which will be held on August 9. The 26 year-old is scheduled to complete two demonstration laps.

The Toyota GT-One competed in the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1998 and 1999, taking pole position and second place in its final outing in the French endurance event. Although it has not raced since 1999, a car is kept in running condition at Toyota’s technical centre in Cologne, Germany and makes occasional appearances at events such as the UK's Goodwood Festival of Speed.
