TOYOTA Motor Philippines (TMP) brings back the Vios Racing Festival. Gear up for heart-racing fun as Toyota starts the festival this summer with the Vios Autocross Challenge today, April 28, 9 a.m. at the Mall of Asia open grounds. Admission is free. Everyone is invited to come and support their favorite celebrity racers like Gerald Anderson, Daniel Matsunaga, Chie Filomeno, Gretchen Ho, Aubrey Miles, Troy Montero and Fabio Ide as they compete at the autocross tracks with other racers. What exactly is the Vios Autocross Challenge? “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 Satoru Suzuki, TMP president. 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 two seconds on top of the racer’s final lap time. In order to promote a more inclusive racing scene that fosters friendly competition, drivers from different backgrounds are invited: celebrities, social media influencers, car club members, new Vios owners, motoring journalists, and now even loyal Toyota patrons.
