2-Day Toyota Gazoo Racing Fest Headlined By Morizo Driving Exhibition

Last week, we reported that Toyota Motor Corporation Chairman Akio Toyoda is coming to the Philippines. Today, Toyota Motor Philippines has confirmed that he will be top billing the Toyota Gazoo Racing Fest (TGR) on August 23 to 24.

Open to the public, the free admission TGR Fest is a gathering of motorsports enthusiasts and car afficionados celebrating the thrill and joy of driving Toyota cars. It will be held at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila on August 23 and 24. This festival is expected to serve as a grand meetup of TGR drivers and fans, aiming to form the biggest assembly of GR cars in one venue.

Morizo is set to perform exciting and challenging driving exhibitions in front of the Filipino audience – a rare spectacle usually held in some of the world’s most renowned race tracks.

Morizo will be joined by other Japanese champion racers from Toyota Gazoo Racing team – Norihiko Katsuta and Masahiro Sasaki, bringing with them the legendary race cars that have run the rally courses of global racing events – Toyota WRC Yaris and Corolla D1.

Driving alongside them in a series of drifting and gymkhana challenges are Filipino representatives Alex Perez, Luis Gono, Marlon Stockinger, and Ryan Agoncillo using Toyota Gazoo Racing performance cars: GR Supra, GR Yaris, and GR 86.

All Toyota customers, fans, and spectators are welcome to join in the fun and expect more attractions and surprises, including getting the chance to ride with the guest professional racers, winning official TGR merchandise, and witnessing the national finals of TMP’s biggest national sim racing championship, the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing Gran Turismo Cup Philippines (TGR GT Cup PH).

Performers like Ely Buendia, Ben&Ben, Parokya ni Edgar, and Kamikazee will also be at the festival to entertain and excite the crowd.


  1. Will Morizo be driving a GR Corolla Morizo Edition?

  2. I wonder why the visit is generating so little attention. This visit is a big deal. We get 30 new car launches a year. This visit is once and maybe never again.

    1. The last time Toyoda was here was five years ago. But the event was never public. This is the first time it's made public.
