It’s a race to the finish line as celebrities and social media personalities square it off in the final round at the close of the first season of the Toyota Motor Philippines’ GR Supra GT Cup Asia Philippines virtual racing competition.
Gino Quillamor, Apple David, Nico Salva and Angelique Manto will race against other e-motorsports enthusiasts that include Toyota’s own bet, President Atsuhiro Okamoto.
The third round is crucial as racers will earn double points. With these bonus points, racers who accumulated the most points after the three rounds will be declared the national GR Supra GT Cup Asia Philippines champions. One champion from the sporting class, and one from promotional class will advance to the Asian championship this October. The third member of team Philippines will come from the media and celebrity class.
Team Toyota Motor Philippines will race against the champions from other Asian Toyota distributors in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and India.
All the top champs, 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 much-coveted PlayStation 5. The GR Supra GT Cup series is being held via the Gran Turismo Sport game on the PlayStation platform.
