The anticipation is building as the Toyota GAZOO Racing (TGR) Gran Turismo (GT) Cup returns to Singapore for its fifth edition, delivering an electrifying spectacle of virtual racing mastery.
This eagerly awaited event, accessible through “Gran Turismo 7” on both PlayStation©4 (PS4©) and PlayStation©5, stands as a testament to Toyota’s unwavering commitment to democratising e-Motorsports and offering racing enthusiasts the chance to embrace the exhilaration of piloting Toyota GR cars on iconic circuits.
The TGR GT Cup 2023 Qualifiers kicked off on August 11, 2023 and talented sim racers have set their sights on the coveted championship title.
These skilled competitors are set to put their virtual driving skills to the test on legendary tracks, including the iconic Tsukuba circuit and the thrilling Deep Forest Speedway circuit.
Navigating the virtual terrain with finesse and precision, these sim racers will steer an impressive array of Toyota GR models, including the agile GR 86 ‘22 and the high-performance GR Yaris 1st Edition RZ ‘20 (photo below).
Their mastery of these cutting-edge vehicles will be on full display as they navigate challenging twists and turns, vying for the top spot on the podium.
The intensity of the competition is building towards a climactic apex: The National Finals.
This pinnacle event will culminate in an exclusive watch party on September 8, 2023, at Toyota’s Leng Kee Showroom.
Limited to just 80 spots, this event marks the debut of a watch party experience for enthusiastic fans to gather, complete with exclusive GR goodies for all attendees.
As the cheers rise and excitement soars, the watch party will crown the finest sim racers as champions of this year’s TGR GT Cup Singapore 2023.
For the most accomplished podium finishers, an exceptional reward awaits.
The top three racers will claim not only the title but also impressive cash prizes: SGD3,000 for the Winner, SGD2,000 for the First Runner-Up, and SGD1,000 for the Second Runner-Up.
TOP THREE WILL HEAD TO KL
The winners will not only bask in the glory of their achievements but will also secure their coveted passage to the next echelon of the competition.
This will propel them to the regional stage, where they will represent their nation in the exhilarating TGR GT Cup Asia 2023, set to unfold in Kuala Lumpur on September 24, 2023.
The top two finishers from the TGR GT Cup Asia 2023 will then earn their opportunity to test their mettle against the world’s best e-racers at the Global Finals, dates of which are yet to be confirmed.
