The company will field three different models including the xD, tC and FR-S. The xD rally car will be driven by Andrew Comrie-Picard, while the GReddy tC will be piloted by Takeshi Aizawa. Both will be competing in the Time Attack class.

Rookie Robert Walker will be behind the wheel of a specially modified FR-S which was built by Evasive Motorsports. He will be competing against Rhys Millen and Sébastien Loeb in the Unlimited class.

Likewise, the xD rally car has a turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that pumps out 265 bhp (197 kW) and 265 lb-ft (358 Nm) of torque. This enables the car to run from 0-60 mph in approximately 4.3 seconds.
