Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP), the official local distributor of Toyota vehicles, has formally launched the 5th season of its popular one-make race; the Vios Cup. Checduled for 3 exciting rounds this year, the Japanese carmaker spruced it up with new regulation changes to heat up the playing field.
As with its previous instalments, the 2018 Toyota Vios Cup will have 4 classifications based on driver skill levels. The first of which is the Rota Promotional Class which also includes the Celebrity Class.
The former gives novice or aspiring racers a chance to experience the ins and outs of touring car racing. The latter on the other hand, is where celebrity racers (i.e. showbiz people, sports icons, among others) show their competitive side behind the wheel. Next is the Bridgestone Sporting Class, an intermediate level which tests the skill levels of drivers from the Promotional Class or those with a number of racing experiences on their resumes.
Then there’s the Super Sporting Class. This is a top-seeded classification where well-experienced racing drivers from the Sporting Class, as well as seasoned/veteran professional racers battle it out for the win.
