Toyota is Giving Owners a Chance to Race at the Vios Autocross Challenge
Attention all Toyota vehicle owners, do you have what it takes to be the next racing superstar? Then answer the call and join the first leg of the Toyota Vios Autocross Challenge this coming April 27 to April 28, 2019, 9:00 AM at Block 16 of the Mall of Asia open grounds.
The feeling of waku-doki is back as celebrity racers Gerald Anderson, Daniel Matsunaga, Chie Filomeno, Gretchen Ho, Aubrey Miles, Troy Montero, and Fabio Ide compete at the autocross track. Now, one of those can be you.
Toyota owners, regardless of model and year, that can drive a manual transmission vehicle can participate. Aspiring racers may visit this link to participate in an online game that will determine who will get the chance to be a racer behind a race-ready Vios for the weekend.
“Toyota wants to make racing an accessible sport for the ordinary Filipino by providing an extraordinary opportunity to get themselves started, fueled by their passion for motorsports,” said Mr. Satoru Suzuki, President of Toyota Motor Philippines.
The Vios Autocross Challenge is a new addition to the standard circuit racing format. It is a timed competition wherein drivers navigate through an obstacle course one at a time, aiming to finish the track within the shortest lap time possible.
This new format will be more amateur-friendly than a standard circuit race, where all participants are simultaneously racing against each other. The adrenaline factor is retained through several mechanics which highlight driving precision: for example, every pylon hit adds 2 seconds on top of the racer’s final lap time.
Five racing seats are up for grabs. Chosen entries will be announced via Facebook and Toyota representatives will contact the winners for further participation instructions.
