Toyota Motor PH to Bring Back Vios Cup This July 2021

It is the announcement Philippine motorsport patrons, racers, and racing fans have been waiting for: the Toyota Vios Cup is back. The country’s leading automaker has confirmed its plans to re-open its one-make racing series this year, despite the on-going pandemic.

Barring any unforeseen circumstances such as prohibitions from government or health authorities or risks to participants’ health and safety, the Toyota GAZOO Racing - Vios Cup 2021 is slated to start in July 2021. It aims to bring together the country’s top circuit racers vying for the championship in the promotional, sporting, and super sporting classes. It will also be re-opening the popular Autocross Challenge.

It can be recalled that the 2020 season of the race series was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“While the race itself will be done live at the Clark International Speedway with no on-site spectators, more fans can enjoy watching the event as a digital spectacle. Supporters all over the world may follow and view the Toyota GAZOO Racing - Vios Cup online in the safety of their own homes,” said Sherwin Chualim, TMP’s First Vice President for Vehicle Sales Operations.

“Fans can look forward to significant improvements in the production to make the livestream doubly exciting and worth catching. Online fan engagements and brand building experiences will also be boosted through the support of the Toyota GAZOO Racing global brand and the addition of the GR GT Cup e-Motorsports (online racing) activities,” he added.

Limited edition Toyota Vios one-make-race units are now available to aspiring participants. Interested racers may inquire through the Vios Cup secretariat managed by TMP’s official race management partner Tuason Racing via email address vioscupsecretariat [at] TMP will soon announce the re-opening of the Toyota Racing School and post more details about the three legs of the Toyota GAZOO Racing - Vios Cup 2021 Circuit Championship and Autocross Challenge.

Meanwhile, online racers from all over the Philippines can expect to experience heart-pumping excitement right at the safety of their own homes by racing at the GR GT Cup e-Motorsport series.

Through the Gran Turismo game on PlayStation, Filipino e-Sports racers may drive the GR Supra and other Toyota GR models on the world’s most popular race tracks, virtually. Exciting prizes await the 2021 Filipino champions. Registration starts this March via this link. Races will start in April.

  1. Events like these are partly to blame why some vios owners think they own performance cars...
