Share your thoughts online and get a chance to drive a race-ready all-new Toyota Vios during the Toyota Vios Racing Festival this weekend. Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) continues to promote waku-doki by taking the races back to the Clark International Speedway. Catch the action this weekend as celebrities, car club members, Toyota owners, and motoring media personalities take it pedal-to-the-metal in two exciting formats: the Vios Autocross Challenge and the Vios Circuit Championship. Admission is FREE and gates open at 9:00 AM on Saturday, June 8, 2019.
“It’s the first time that the all-new Toyota Vios will be tested at the racetracks since its debut as a pace car in the Filinvest leg of the 2018 Vios Cup. 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 wheel-to-wheel format wherein all drivers are simultaneously competing against each other during laps. This year, there will be three (3) categories for the Vios Circuit Championship: Sporting Class, Promotional Class, and Celebrity Class.
For the second time this year, 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.
