On top of the title and honor, up to PHP1 million worth of prizes are at stake in this year’s 2021 Toyota Gazoo Racing GT Cup as racers run through different stages to lead the circuit and accumulate points to reach the championship spot.
Waving from the checkered flag is a cash prize plus a brand-new Sony PlayStation 5 awaits the overall champion of the National Finals. While the 2nd and 3rd placers get heart-pumping gadgets and gears including a high-powered tablet and a much-loved gaming chair respectively.
Coming in the national rounds, finishers get to share gaming gears and coveted devices including a gaming steering wheel, portable gaming console, a high-definition gaming headset, top-tier gaming monitors. Tablets, smart home devices, and portable action cameras are also on the horizon for techno freaks.
A PlayStation Gaming Headset, gaming mouse, gaming drive shifter, plus smart home devices are also up for grabs within the Junior and Special racing categories.
Racers are encouraged to accumulate as many points as possible by entering and re-qualifying for all rounds starting from April to June 2021. Interested players can still join for Round 2 with the Leaderboard race starting on May 28 and the Race Heat landing on May 29. While Round 3 Leaderboard Race lights green on June 18, and the Final Heat happens the next day, June 19, where we will find out who will dominate the digital circuit.
The more points earned, the more chances of winning bigger and more exciting prizes. Participants can register in eligible classes from Sporting (Professional), Promotional (Non-professional), and Junior (17 years old and below).
Organizing the Toyota GR GT Cup is a follow-up to Toyota Motor Philippines’ motorsports success and legacy. After the years-long achievement of the now-famous Vios Cup, racers of any age can enjoy Waku Doki or the power of a thrill, even in the comforts of their own home. Both professional and novice drivers can experience the same fun and excitement as the real one.
“We are eager to bring Waku Doki in the Filipino homes especially in the trying times where almost everyone is encouraged to stay safe at home. It is equally a wonderful time for emerging Filipino gamers and champions to hone their talent and win the GR GT Cup. We are excited to meet the fastest Filipino driver this year.” Toyota Motor Philippine Vice-President for Marketing Services Elijah Marcial shares.
The establishment of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing is a testament to Toyota’s unyielding passion for auto racing. And the GR GT Cup serves as an expansion of their love of building ever-better cars and giving the experience of Waku Doki even for those who aren’t able to push their pedals against the real racing tracks. Even in the heat of speeding in circuits and beyond the limits of the pandemic, Toyota is committed in producing happiness for all.
