Toyota, through its motorsports arm, Toyota Gazoo Racing (TGR) has announced its involvement in e-motorsports with the launch of the GR Supra GT Cup.
The race series will involve only the latest Toyota Gazoo Racing (GR) Supra in the Gran Turismo Sport game that is exclusively available on Sony’s PlayStation 4 console.
Toyota says e-motorsports is one of the pillars of TGR activities and they are actively working to make motorsports and sports cars more accessible, and enjoyable for all.
The global online tournament will commence in April and conclude in October, with the finals to be held at the Tokyo Motor Show.
Locally, UMW Toyota Motor held an e-motorsport competition last year that saw tremendous response from the public. The company also included a booth for e-motorsports at all the Toyota Gazoo Racing Festival events.
The next Toyota Gazoo Racing Festival is scheduled to be held at Malaysia’s home of motorsports, the Sepang Circuit, on the weekend of 27th and 28th April.
