How do I find sport parts and motorsport accessories?
TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Europe (TGR-E) has taken on a new role and as a result we are no longer in a position to market tuning products directly ourselves. We can therefore no longer supply parts directly.
In case you require spare parts for your MR2 Turbo, Yaris P1 compressor, Lexus IS or RX compressor, you can ask your dealer to contact TGR-E directly.
For TRD parts from Japan, please contact one of the European distributors listed on this link: http://www.trdparts.jp/english/distributor.html
For TRD parts from the United States please contact: http://www.trdusa.com/contact.html
We apologise for any inconvenience.
How do I get to TGR-E?
Cologne is well served by every type of transport network, so getting here is easy. Cologne Bonn airport is the second biggest air freight terminal in Germany and lies just 25km away from TGR-E, with easy highway access. Other international airport options include Düsseldorf (65km) and Frankfurt (200km). Getting to TGR-E by road could not be easier, with the A1 and A4 highways on our doorstep, while excellent rail connections through Cologne central station link to cities across Europe.
Can I visit TGR-E?
We will gladly open our doors for serious inquiries. However, any facility viewing is by appointment only. Please do not visit TGR-E without an appointment as we are unable to guarantee appropriate access. Please note, facility visits are limited to clients and potential clients only; we do not offer public viewings.
What does TGR-E charge for its services?
Is TGR-E only offering motorsport services?
No. TGR-E is a high performance centre for design, development and production in a wide range of sectors. TGR-E started life in the world of top-level motorsport but during that time already diversified into road car tuning. Now TGR-E’s facilities are available for the aerospace, automotive, medical and consumer industries and we provide a first-class service for original equipment manufacturers, prototype developers and mass-market product developers alike. We offer a flexible service tuned exactly to your needs, without limits on industry or speciality.
How can I find out the detailed specifications of your machines?
The main specifications of our machines and services are listed on the right of each departmental page. However, for practical reasons it is not desirable to provide comprehensive lists of all specifications. If you require more detailed information, please do not hesitate to get in contact with one of our representatives. We will be happy to provide more detailed information for serious inquiries.
How can I verify my ex-TTE rally car?
Please contact us with the car's registration, VIN number and original German registration documents. Based on that information, we can normally trace the history of a TTE rally car.
Can I rent TGR-E’s facilities and bring my own engineers?
Yes. Our flexible packages allow for bespoke levels of service, so we can provide a solution identical to your needs. However, please note that due to the unique nature of many of our machines, in most cases TGR-E machine operators must be used to ensure reliable and safe testing.
I don't have any facilities, can TGR-E help me develop and build my racing car or prototype?
Yes. Full car design, development and production is one of TGR-E’s specialist services and we would be delighted to realise your project. We offer a comprehensive service for small-production-run road cars, formula cars, touring cars, rally cars and many others so get in touch to find out how we can help.
Does TGR-E only offer services to other Toyota companies?
No. TGR-E’s services are available to any external company or organisation.
Do your representatives speak different languages?
English is the official language of TGR-E but as a multi-national company we offer representatives fluent in most European languages, as well as Japanese. Feel free to contact us in your native language and we will do our best to reply in your language.
Who are TGR-E’s clients?
TGR-E has a growing portfolio of automotive and motorsport clients, in addition to its in-house development work for Toyota Motor Corporation. However, confidentiality obligations prevent us from revealing the identity of our clients.
I am a member of the media and would like to feature TGR-E in my publication/broadcast. How do I go about this?
