Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) is inviting all racing fans and car enthusiasts to the August leg of its grassroots motorsports series, the Vios Racing Festival.
At the Clark International Speedway, celebrities, car club members, Toyota owners, and motoring media will push the Toyota Vios. The Toyota GR Supra also marks its return to the Vios Racing Festival race track since its first official Philippine appearance during the previous leg. This time, Toyota’s flagship race model has been designated the official pace car of the one-make race series.
Admission to the event is free, and shuttles will be available to the general public from SM City Clark going to the venue. Side events and activities will also be opened for the enjoyment of groups of friends or families.
The Vios Racing Festival can also be streamed via Toyota’s official Facebook page at facebook.com/ToyotaMotorPhilippines.
Celebrity drivers Gretchen Ho, Chie Filomeno, Fabio Ide, Troy Montero, Aubrey Miles, Daniel Matsunaga, and Gerald Anderson will be competing on the track.
Scores garnered by the racers from the previous leg are being accumulated in order to declare the overall champions by the end of the 2019 season. This applies to both racing formats: the Vios Circuit Championship and the Vios Autocross Challenge.
Here are the winners of the Circuit Championship’s previous leg, held last June:
