Exciting 2022 TGR Vios Cup season concludes under wet weather

MANILA: The 2022 Toyota Gazoo Racing (TGR) Vios Cup was concluded by Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) on November 19 with an exciting final weekend.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Who are the winners in the 2022 TGR Vios Cup Autocross Challenge Media class?

    For the Media Promotional Class, Pablo Salapantan (YugaTech) still finished on top, with Siegwald Go (C! Magazine) advancing to second place, and Riz Javier (Top Gear Philippines) claiming the third spot. Media Sporting Class also saw Jan Lacuna (Autoindustriya) keeping his podium spot, with Ronald Delos Reyes (The Daily Tribune) and Kevin Francisco (The Modern Creatures) finishing second, and third respectively.
  • What is the Toyota Gazoo Racing Vios Cup

    What was on its eight year this 2022, the TGR Vios Cup is the country’s premiere, grassroots, one-make racing series, featuring a standard Toyota Vios 1.5 G variant with a manual transmission with various bolt-on modifications readily available for anyone who wants to fulfill their racing aspirations.
  • For the grand finale of the 2022 TGR Vios Cup season, about 55 racers from the Circuit Championship and Autocross Challenge's Super Sporting, Sporting, and Promotional classes converged once more at the Clark International Speedway.

    It was a season finale to remember as many of the last leg’s teams ultimately sustained their momentum to win podium finishes for their racing teams. Successfully pushing the pedal to the metal are the second leg’s top finishers, who took home the championship for their respective categories.

    Some of the 2022 TGR Vios Cup challenges in the latter part of the racing day witnessed extreme racing conditions as the rain started to pour at the Clark International Speedway. This made every class’ win even more worth all the strategic moves throughout the wet speedway.

    For Race 9’s Promotional Class Winners, it was Jay Lao of OTR Racing Team who ultimately won the top podium finish, with Ian Rosales of Toyota Team Cebu placing second, and Alain Alzona of Alzona Racing Team taking the third spot.

    Sporting Class racer Joaquin Garrido of the Obengers Racing Team championed Race 9, with Michael Keilani Jordan of Jordan Racing Team finishing second, and Jiro Garbes of Toyota San Fernando completing the top three.

    It was quite an eventful weekend for the Obengers Racing Team as Inigo Anton also bagged the top spot for Race 9’s Super Sporting Class, with Red Diwa finishing second, and John Dizon, also from Obengers Racing, finishing in third.

    The 2022 TGR Vios Cup Autocross Challenge racers also had their fair share of the wild turns at the tracks, but this did not stop the previous leg’s winners from still finishing in their respective top spots.

    For the Media Promotional Class, Pablo Salapantan (YugaTech) still finished on top, with Siegwald Go (C! Magazine) advancing to second place, and Riz Javier (Top Gear Philippines) claiming the third spot. Media Sporting Class also saw Jan Lacuna (Autoindustriya) keeping his podium spot, with Ronald Delos Reyes (The Daily Tribune) and Kevin Francisco (The Modern Creatures) finishing second, and third respectively.

    The influencers also showed what they got when it came to being the star on the race track. Bringing home the Promotional Class top spot was Miguel Romulo, who bested two other strong contenders, Ashley Gosiengifiao, who finished second, and Carla Lizardo, who took third place.

    VIOS OMR CAR AGAINST A SUNSET

    It was a quick rise to the top spot for Enzo Pineda, who championed the Influencer Sporting Class, with Jules Aquino and Aaron Villaflor eventually claiming the second and third spots, respectively.

    In the GR GT Cup Class of the 2022 TGR Vios Cup Autocross Challenge, Russel Reyes was champion whose performance upgraded from being second during the previous leg to now gaining the top spot, becoming a challenging yet fulfilling feat. Jether Miole finished second, while Mark Elman claimed the third spot.
