Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) is again offering the Vios One Make Race (OMR) car for retail to the general public for P1.4 million. The brand-new Vios OMR units are of the same build as the racecars used at the Vios Racing Festival (VRF). These can be ordered in all 70 Toyota dealerships nationwide. 

Each purchase automatically enlists its owner to race at the circuit format of the VRF starting this November under the Promotional Class. For buyers purchasing after the end of the 2019 season, they are required to race for the 2020 season. 

“By making the Vios OMR available to the public, Toyota is helping to promote the grassroots motorsports scene by making it a more inclusive sport for all racing fans,” said TMP first vice president Cristina Arevalo. 

She added, “This new generation of the Vios racecar is a good entry point to the world of motorsports because of its signature quality, durability, and reliability. Instead of simply being spectators, future owners are encouraged to enroll at the Toyota Racing School and participate in the upcoming legs of our Vios Racing Festival series.” 

The Vios OMR shares a frame with the regular Vios G variant, with a 1.5-liter engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission. It produces a maximum output of 106hp at 6,000 rpm and 140Nm at 4,200 rpm. 

Aside from speed and driving precision, the Vios OMR units are also equipped with standard safety features for track racing. Below are its racing modifications: 

RACING MODIFICATIONS 
Clutch cover
Clutch disk
Limited slip differential sport brake pad muffler set
Upper mount (front) suspension set
