With the entire rooftop length of the Sepang International Circuit’s main paddock building transformed into a festival ground, the exclusive entry will open the doors to a myriad of activities that includes the opportunity to mingle with their favourite celebrities during a walk about and a meet and greet and autograph session.

There will also be a display and sale of GAZOO Racing and Toyota merchandises, family activities, a lucky draw with attractive prizes, and two very special concerts.

“It’s hard to imagine that we have come five seasons in the Vios Challenge. What an incredible journey it has been for Toyota, the racers, our dealers and our fans. We continuously look at new elements to make both the festival and the race even more exciting,” said UMW Toyota Motor, President Ravindran K.

“Race fans have been a big part of the festival’s continued success and for the finale this season, we’d like to do something a little special by showing our appreciation to the lucky 2,000 spectators.”

“From street racing to circuit racing and night racing, the Vios Challenge has evolved to not only attract the best in Malaysian saloon car racers but has grown to become a breeding ground for new talent and young drivers. This is a momentum we hope to keep going into Season 6 and beyond.”

To be amongst the lucky invited spectators, look out for a special contest posting on the TGR Malaysia Facebook and Instagram pages, like and follow the pages, and in the comment section of either page, tag four friends that you’d like to bring along and indicate whether you’d like to attend the race on Saturday or on Sunday.

Activities on the track will also include a track day for invited owners belonging to various Toyota car clubs.

Held under the bright lights of the Sepang International Circuit, the Vios Challenge race guarantees nothing short of a dogfight on the track as the championship in all four categories of racing likely to be decided in the last two races of the season.

The battle in the Promotional Class for celebrities will again be down to actors Zizan Razak and Shukri Yahaya, with Zizan having a slight advantage of two race victories from four races so far while the latter is the defending champion.

In the Rookie Class for young drivers, the fight for the championship will be between simulator racers Nabil Azlan and Muhammad Hamdany Abdul Hamid, with Nabil having two race wins to credit and the latter being the only driver to consistently be on the winners’ podium in four races held so far.

In the Sporting Class for gentlemen and amateur racers, young driver Naquib Azlan from Axle Motorsports will be hoping his three-race win advantage so far will be enough to propel him to his second straight overall title after winning last year’s Rookie Class championship.

Technically, the title is his to lose if he doesn’t finish in the points with another two young drivers – Crestmax Motorsports Bradley Benedict Anthony and 23 Motors’ Abdul Miqail – in close pursuit.

The battle of the professionals in the Super Sporting Class meanwhile, will be nothing short of nail biting with at least four drivers still in contention of winning the overall title.

They are Prima Pearl TD Racing’s Tengku Djan Ley Tengku Mahaleel, Laser Motor Racing’s Mark Darwin and Eddie Liew, and Telagamas Toyota’s Freddie Ang, all of whom have been consistently trading places on the winners’ podium.
