Following the success of last year’s Toyota Gazoo Racing (TGR) Velocity eSports Championship, UMW Toyota is back with another season of the racing simulator challenge.
The virtual racing challenge compliments the high-performance activities of Toyota including the imminent introduction of the Toyota GR Supra and GR Garage – UMW Toyota’s dedicated performance show galleries.
Through eSports, the company hopes to engage even more racing fans to be part of its high-octane activities. The TGR Velocity eSports Championship is open to all Malaysians aged 18 and above. To be part of the Grand Finals, racers will have to go through a time-trial phase Cove Esports in Bandar Sunway, Subang Jaya, Selangor on 31 August, 1, 14 and 15 September.
