Singapore – The Toyota GAZOO Racing Gran Turismo Cup (TGR GT Cup) 2022 Qualifiers Round fired-up its engines virtually on 13 August 2022, as the fourth instalment of Toyota's highly anticipated sim racing competition makes a comeback in September on 'Gran Turismo 7' on both the Sony PlayStation®4 (PS4®) and PlayStation®5 (PS5®) consoles. There will be three different stages to the TGR GT Cup Singapore edition — Qualifiers, Semi-Finals and Finals.

To channel the spirit of GAZOO Racing, this year's competition features a diverse selection of Toyota sportcars (such as the Castrol TOM’S Toyota Supra GT500 ’97 for instance) in which racer-players can push their limits and experience the thrill of competition through renowned circuits.

Since the first round began, Toyota has already seen over 36 participants battling it out in the tracks. 24 of the fastest competitors will advance to the next round, with the Semi-finals taking place on 4th September.

Two groups of 12 racers will compete in two races per group, with the top six racers from each group moving forward to the Finals. Racers who advance to the national finals will compete in three gruelling races, with the overall top three competitors placing on the podium.

Local e-motorsport racers who place in the top three positions will be awarded with cash prizes of SGD$3,000 (Winner), SGD$2,000 (1st Runner-Up), and SGD$1,000 (2nd Runner-Up).

The top three racers from Singapore will compete on a regional level against the top qualifiers (comprising 21 racers hailing from the seven different teams in Asia) from Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Taiwan and South Korea in the TGR GT Cup ASIA 2022 on 9th October.

Mr. Samuel Yong, Director of Strategic Marketing and Business Strategy at Borneo Motors Singapore shares, “Since 2020, Borneo Motors Singapore has brought to life the thrill of experiencing motorsports races to local e-sports enthusiasts with our Toyota GAZOO Racing GT Cup. We look forward to hosting yet another exciting year of the race in Singapore and through this competition, we hope that Toyota is able to make motorsports more accessible and enjoyable across generations.”
