Our parents sponsored our Tyco slot-car hobby when we were youngsters, but apparently Toyota's taking this, "We support cars that run on electricity" thing pretty seriously, having signed on to sponsor Slot Rally GB, a 1/32nd-scale-car rally that runs on a number of different surfaces, including loose ones. Featuring 20 stages, it's only six quid to enter a car, and we have to say, if we were in Blighty, we'd totally have a Jalopnik entry ready to go by the 23rd of September. Plus, it's for charity.
