TOYOTA MOTOR Philippines’ (TMP) Vios Racing Festival hits the Clark International Speedway this weekend, promising anew an exciting pedal-to-the-metal action.
Happening on Saturday, June 8, the first leg of the “waku-doki” (exciting) racing festival will have two formats — Autocross Challenge and Circuit Championship — and will feature celebrities, car clubs, Toyota owners, and motoring media. Gates open at 9 a.m. and admission is free.
The All-New Vios model, which has been modified for optimum handling and performance, will be tested for the first time during the festival.
“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,” said TMP Vice-President Elijah Marcial.
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.
Adding twist to the proceedings is that Vios owners — regardless of car model and year, given they can drive manual transmission — get a chance to race on festival day.
All they have to do is share their thoughts online for a chance to race at the Vios Autocross Challenge. No prior motorsports experience is required.
