Can you believe it has been 10 years since Toyota Motor Philippines debuted the Vios Cup? The country’s largest one-make race series returns for the 2024 season with a new name: the Gazoo Racing Philippine Cup, still happening at Clark International Speedway.

The race weekend has been revamped from its previous years with a new competition format. The addition of a sprint race would see competitors battle over 12 laps, while the endurance race (replacing the Grand Prix portion) pushes the limits of drivers for 1.5 hours.

Meanwhile, the Autocross Challenge won’t be part of the race weekends this year. However, the past winners in the celebrity, influencer, and media categories will revisit the paddock and join the sprint grid as the Novice Class.

The first round of the Toyota Gazoo Racing Philippine Cup will happen on July 13 with subsequent stages taking place on September 28 and November 9. Even after a decade, admission is still free for any enthusiast to witness Philippine motorsport at its finest.
