TOYOTA MOTOR PHILIPPINES (TMP) continues the waku-doki of the Vios Racing Festival by taking the race back to its roots at the Clark International Speedway. Catch the action this weekend as celebrities, car clubs, Toyota owners, and motoring media take it pedal-to-the-metal in two exciting formats: Autocross Challenge and Circuit Championship. Admission is free, and gates open at 9 a.m. of Saturday, June 8.
“It’s the first time that the all-new Vios model will be tested at the racetracks since its debut as a pace car in 2018’s Filinvest leg. We made sure that aside from speed, the Vios is also a built for precision and safety,” announced TMP Vice-President Elijah Marcial.
The One Make Race (OMR) Vios racecar has been modified for optimum handling and performance given the two different racing formats. The Autocross Challenge is a timed competition wherein drivers navigate through an obstacle course one at a time; while the Circuit Championship is the classic format wherein all drivers are simultaneously competing against each other during laps.
This year, there will be three categories for the Vios Circuit Championship: Sporting Class, Promotional Class, and Celebrity Class.
Once again, TMP is inviting all Toyota owners — regardless of car model and year, given they can drive manual transmission — to share their thoughts online for a chance to race at the Vios Autocross Challenge. No prior motorsports experience is required. The Facebook promo can be accessed through this link: http://bit.ly/joinVRF.
The five lucky winners with the best captions will be contacted by official representatives from Toyota Motor Philippines, and will be provided with race-ready Vios units during the event.
The Toyota Vios Racing Festival is held in cooperation with Bridgestone; supported by Petron, Motul, and Rota; and other sponsors Brembo, Denso, AVT, 3M, OMP, and Tuason Racing.
