2020 will be the sixteenth running of the Toyota Racing Series, the premier open-wheel category in New Zealand. From this season, the championship will adopt the regional F3 regulations with the introduction of the new Tatuus FT-60 model. It is identical to the T-318 chassis used in the Asian and European regional championships and also W-Series and Formula Renault Eurocup, but equipped with a 1.8-litre Toyota engine producing 270bhp.
The tight schedule and points system mean consistency will be key as always.
Round 1 - Highlands Motorsport Park - 17-19 January
Round 2 - Teretonga Park - 24-26 January
Round 3 - Hampton Downs Motorsport Park - 31 January-2 February
Round 4 - Pukekohe Park Raceway - 7-9 February
Round 5 - Manfeild: Circuit Chris Amon - 14-16 February
