Following the success of the Toyota Gazoo Racing GT Cup in 2020, Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) once again launched the e-motorsports series this year. The races allowed newbies and pros across all ages to go head-to-head in the virtual world all from the comfort and safety of home.

The roster included a wide variety of players, including those aged 17 and below, and young-at-hearts, coming from the professional and novice levels of experience in e-sports.
After three rounds of intense racing, three champions from the Junior Class, Promotional Class, and Sporting Class emerged. The three races held were held in the iconic Tsukuba Circuit, the fictional track of Kyoto Driving Park, and the Suzuka Circuit. In the end, Russel Cabrera from the Junior Class, Jether Miole from the Promotional Class, and Luis Moreno from the Sporting Class emerged victorious. As champions of the 2021 Toyota Gazoo Racing GT Cup, they will take home a cash prize of PHP 100,000 and a brand-new Sony PlayStation 5 each.
