The 2nd round of Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP)’s national emotorsports prorgram, GR Supra GT Cup Asia Philippines ended with familiar names in the winners podium stand. Hundreds of players participated from their own homes, virtually racing Toyota’s flagship sports car, the GR Supra, on the tracks of the Autopolis International Racing Course. After the qualifying rounds and the finals heat, TMP has declared the official winners for the 2nd round of the GR Supra GT Cup Asia Philippines.
Finishing first in the Sporting Class is Luis Moreno who also won during the first round. With him on the podium are second placer Miguel San Mateo and third placer Terence Lallave, both first-time Top 3 finishers. “I feel ecstatic for the win, considering the nature of the track. I am very happy to pull another victory on a track I consider the toughest in the calendar,” said Sporting Class champion Moreno. In the promotional class, new Top 3 qualifier JB Cruz won first place, zooming past second placer Lance Guballa and third placer Lance Padilla. Guballa and Padilla won third and second places respectively during the first round.
Round 2 points have a 1.5 multiplier. The third and final round with doubled points will be held this month. Accumulated points after the third round will determine the two overall champions, one from each class, who will then represent the Philippines at the Asian Regional Championship of the GR Supra GT Cup in October. A third champion also headed to the regional championship will be coming from the Celebrity vs. Media class, also happening this September.
Registration for the third round is now open at www.toyota.com.ph/gtcup and will be broadcasted on September 26, 2020.
The GR Supra GT Cup Asia Philippines expands TMP’s motorsport activities led by the Vios Racing Festival (VRF). This year’s VRF season has been postponed due to the pandemic, but this hasn’t stopped TMP from promoting the waku-doki or heart-pumping excitement of racing.
