Ruben Manahan IV

Local racers, now is your chance. Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has just announced that they are offering the Vios One-Make Race (OMR) car for retail to the general public.

At PHP1.4 million, motoring enthusiasts can have their very own Vios racecar.

The brand-new Vios OMR units, which are of the same build as the racecars used at the Vios Racing Festival (VRF), can be ordered in all 70 Toyota dealerships nationwide.

To make the buy worth every peso, a purchase of the Vios OMR unit at the special SRP automatically enlists its owner to race at the circuit format of the VRF starting in November, under the Promotional Class.

For buyers who will purchase after the 2019 season ends, they are required to race for the 2020 season.

“By making the Vios OMR available to the public, Toyota is helping to promote the grassroots motorsports scene by making it a more inclusive sport for all racing fans,” TMP First Vice President Cristina Arevalo said. “This new generation of the Vios racecar is a good entry point to the world of motorsports because of its signature Quality, Durability, and Reliability. Instead of simply being spectators, future owners are encouraged to enroll at the Toyota Racing School and participate in the upcoming legs of our Vios Racing Festival series.”

The Vios OMR shares the same powerful frame as the regular Vios G variant, with a 1.5-liter engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission. It produces a maximum output of 106 hp at 6,000 rpm and 140 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm.

Aside from speed and driving precision, the Vios OMR units are also equipped with standard safety features for track racing. Below are its racing modifications:

  • Clutch Cover

  • Muffler Set
