Socks appeal

by Giles Wade / 18th July 2014

If ever there had been any doubt, this picture absolutely confirms that one man – one very important man – has motorsport fever from the tips of his toes.

Who is this man? Who is the man filling those shoes with those cool socks?

It’s Akio Toyoda. Not Akio Toyoda the president and CEO of Toyota Motor Corporation? Oh yes. The very one. The very Akio Toyoda who has so much fever for rallying that he spends his down time drifting one of his own – as in his own – GT86s. For further evidence of this, check the latest MAX vid down below.

And yes, hopefully, the same Toyoda who will lead Toyota back to the top of the World Rally Championship very soon.
