30 years of Toyota, Neal Bates and Australian Rallying – Part 1, 2 & 3

Harry Bates’ ARC title of 2019 marked 30 years since Neal Bates and Toyota joined forces, in this feature, we decided to reflect on a great partnership. 

The person behind that connection and the mutual success it has enjoyed along the way is Mike Breen, former PR man at Toyota Australia for 31 years.

RallySport Magazine asked Mike to tell us how the relationship with the Canberra-based driver began.
