meet the philippine team heading to the gazoo racing gt cup asia regional rounds

The third season of the Toyota Gazoo Racing Gran Turismo Cup Philippines came to a finish with the National Round last July 1, 2022, at the Clark International Speedway. A total of 16 e-racers battled it out on the Suzuka Circuit Speedway and Fuji International Speedway in the GR Yaris and GR Supra to cement their spot on the podium.

Among these e-racers, TGR Vios Cup veteran and champion Estefano Rivera showed exceptional performance to take the top spot in the Sporting Class, with Russel Reyes and Jether Miole following right behind him in the second and third spots. Meanwhile, up-and-coming e-racer Topher Tejada claimed the title of champion for the Promotional Class, followed by Matthew Spencer Ang and Aaron Christian Asence in second and third place.

Sporting Class Champion Estefano Rivera, Sporting Class Runner-up Russel Reyes, and Promotional Class Champion Topher Tejada then took a step closer to the international scene when they were chosen to represent Team Toyota Philippines in the Asia Regional Rounds, where they will be competing against some of the best e-racers from Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand.

The decision comes as part of the accolades for the GR GT Cup Philippines 2022, where the champions from each class are given the exciting opportunity to represent the country as Team Toyota Philippines. Meanwhile, the third and last spot is awarded to the Sporting Class runner-up as the next best player from the pool of winners.

Amid their preparations for the Asia Regional Finals, Team Toyota Philippines visited the Toyota booth on the last day of the recently held 8th Philippine International Motor Show. Estefano, Russel, and Topher took the GR GT Cup racing rigs for a quick practice play with visitors. They also greeted and invited their fans to support them at the Asia Regional Finals.

Fans can show their support for Team Toyota Philippines during the broadcast on October 9, 2022, 6 PM on the Toyota Motor Philippines and Toyota Gazoo Racing Philippines Facebook pages.

Team Toyota Philippines is preparing for the races with the support of official connectivity provider, PLDT Enterprise.
