Toyota's inanugural Vios Challenge will feature 40 cars at the starting grid when the Toyota Gazoo Racing (TGR) Racing Festival starts in Penang this August, ten more than the initial 30 cars announced at the programme's launch in April.
President of UMW Toyota Motor Mr. Ravindran Kurusamy said, “The interest in the Vios Challenge had been overwhelming. We’ve had so many requests by racers who wanted to purchase a car and compete in the Vios Challenge but due to safety and logistics concerns, we have had to restrict the field to a maximum of 40 cars for this season.”
Deputy Chairman of UMW Toyota Motor Mr. Akio Takeyama added, “I am very excited to be taking part in my first race in the Vios Challenge. I have been working hard in the racing school and I have learned so much from my instructors. I can’t wait for the race to begin. I do hope that Malaysian motorsports fans will come to the TGR Racing Festivals and enjoy all that we have planned. With the intense level of competition on the race track, the carnival-like atmosphere, celebrity performances and all the fun-filled activities, I believe that the TGR Racing Festival will be an event like we’ve never seen before.”
With a total of 40 cars, the Vios Challenge will be the highlight event at the Toyota Gazoo Racing (TGR) Racing Festival with a carnival-like atmosphere. Fans can follow TGR Racing Festival and the Vios Challenge on the Toyota GAZOO Racing Malaysia homepage, Facebook page or Instagram.
