Toyota Gazoo Racing (TGR) Festival returns for its third consecutive season starting from September 2019 to April 2020.
With four rounds scheduled, season three of TGR Festival covers both on and off track racing consisting of the Toyota Vios Challenge One-Make Races as well as the Gazoo Racing Velocity E-Sports series.
The Toyota Vios Challenge One-Make Races maintains its race format of two races per round for three race categories – Promotional, Sporting, and Super Sporting. Previous seasons’ on-track racing battle have been teeth-grindingly intense, and interestingly for season three Toyota promises ‘explosive on and off track racing for motorsports fans’. We’ll see about that.
Apart from the race events, visitors can expect a Gazoo Racing Outlet which is said to showcase a line-up of special models inspired and derived from Toyota’s motor-racing involvement which includes the Gazoo Racing Supra.
Mr Akio Takeyama, Deputy Chairman of UMW Toyota Motor said “Toyota has accomplished so much in motor-racing and we want to bring enthusiast and customers closer to the Toyota brand and products by leveraging on Toyota’s rich motorsports heritage.”
“Motorsports is not purely confined to competition but involvement at so many levels. It is also about cultivating greater interest, passion and appreciation and we believe the combination of on track racing, virtual racing, motorsports-inspired and derived models, and bringing the spectacles of motor-racing closer to the people will contribute to giving Malaysian motorsports a further boost,” added UMW Toyota Motor President Mr Ravindran K.
Round one for the TGR Festival season three will be in Kuala Terengganu on the 6th and 7th September 2019.
