Event Review: Joburg’s Finest Toyota @ RST

DSCN9364

Rand Stadium Toyota (RST) make it a point to give back to the community for their continued support, and what better way to have done so than a joint effort with the Toyota Twin Cam Club of SA. Last year’s show was a serious contender, but this year it trumped all others and was arguably the largest Toyota-only show in the country.

The double-story dealership cleared its floors entirely for the great task of getting an entire Corolla timeline as well as some exotics on showcase.

RST went all out to provide excellent family entertainment from Urban Trax 4×4 rides and F1 simulators to some of the countries finest examples of Toyotas and the car that Jeremy Clarkson said to be the best he has ever driven. Yes,  the legendary Lexus LFA….
