The local motorsport scene will be set ablaze again this weekend as Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP)  kicks off this year’s 2021 Toyota GR Vios Cup on Saturday, July 10.

This year’s one-make race series, now headlined by the Japanese carmaker’s global motorsports brand Toyota Gazoo Racing, “promises to deliver racing action to more fans” after its break last year due to the restrictions brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, for the safety of everyone, access to the race venue (Clark International Speedway) will be restricted to the participants.

For those who want to watch the races, they can experience the waku-doki level of excitement online via the Facebook pages of Toyota Motor Philippines and Toyota Gazoo Racing PH.

“On top of the full coverage of the races, online fans can also expect more exciting games, activities, and heart-racing fun together with their favorite racers,” TMP said in its statement.

As announced by fuel partner Petron, the 2021 Toyota GR Vios Cup will have two racing events: the Circuit Championship and the Autocross Challenge.

Dealer teams Obengers Racing Team, R Racing, and JBT Racing will also be joining the track action this weekend,” TMP shared.
