Llandow Laps main article banner pics Ep3

It’s Episode 3 of Llandow Laps, and Chris Harris is braving some typically Welsh weather to see what the world of hot hatches has to offer. First, we have the widely praised Toyota GR Yaris, which has charmed the press and enthusiasts alike with its potent 261PS turbocharged inline-three and surefooted four-wheel drive system.

Due to a manufacturer no-show, the initial stand-in entry is something that features lightweight polymer construction, a two-wheel layout and, you might say, ‘ample storage space’.

Fortunately, thanks to a last-minute substitution courtesy of a certain Mr. Cooper, we got to pitch the GR Yaris against something small and high-revving after all. Given the conditions, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the Toyota was a clear favourite – but it might just have its work cut out against the unexpected contender.

So, get out your best sweeties and settle in for another exciting episode of Llandow Laps; complete with added detailing tips, strong opinions on bell peppers, and the automotive equivalent of saddling up a Labrador.

Have your say!
