The first season of Toyota Motor Philippines' (TMP) virtual racing competition, the GR Supra GT Cup Asia Philippines, will soon come to close. Watch aspiring e-sports drivers compete in the third and final round of the series this coming September 26 at 8:00 PM and see who will emerge champion of the Promotional and Sporting Class.
Aside from the Promotional and Sporting class, this weekend's round is special as celebrities and social media personalities Gino Quillamor, Apple David, Reph Bangsil, John Manalo, Krissha Viaje, Nico Salva, Erika Rabara, and Angelique Manto have all taken part of the event too. They will be going up against racers from the motoring media and including TMP's very own president Atsuhiro Okamoto.
To determine who will be the champion, the racer who accumulates the most points after this third round will be declared the national GR Supra GT Cup Asia Philippines champions. One champion from the sporting class and one from the promotional class will advance to the Asian championship this October. The third member of Team Philippines will come from the media and celebrity class.
“The third round is crucial as racers will earn double points this time,” said Elijah Marcial, TMP's vice president for Marketing Services. “Although we've seen some consistent racers leading in the first two rounds, it's still anybody's game at this point. We cannot wait to find out who will be showing the world that Filipinos can excel in the international e-motorsports arena.”
All top drivers, including the winner from the Junior Class, will win prize packages from TMP. Champions from Sporting, Promotional, and Celebrity/Media class will get a grand prize, including a new PlayStation 5. The GR Supra GT Cup series is being held via the Gran Turismo Sport game on the PlayStation 4 platform.
Team Toyota Motor Philippines will race against the champions from other Asian Toyota distributors in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and India.
