Social media will play a pivotal role in local motorsport, and the upcoming Vios Cup will show how

On September 22, the third and final race of season 5 of the Vios Cup will be held at its old home at the Clark International Speedway in Pampanga. No doubt, as in previous seasons, the races in the different classifications, from the Celebrity class all the way to the Promotional, Sporting and Super Sporting Classes will be action-packed.

Don’t be fooled by the seemingly low turnout of spectators, though. As much as motorsport fans based outside of Pampanga province would love to be where the action truly is, today’s circumstances (in particular, traffic and the high cost of fuel) prevent them from physically going to the venue.

The next best thing, then, is to watch the Vios Cup at the convenience of their own mobile devices, via Facebook Live in Toyota Motor Philippines’ official Facebook page.

Watching on Facebook Live presents some distinct advantages. It provides closer camera shots of the action from every location in the speedway (and the replays and slow-mos), plus you get clearer commentaries and race results, and the pre- or post-race interviews. Then, you can be part of the conversation by posting your own comments and reactions during the race.

Still, they say nothing beats being there, feeling the palpable excitement, hearing the rumble of engines and the roar of the crowd, and seeing and greeting your favorite racers and celebrities such as Sam Milby, Diego Loyzaga, Sofia Andres, and Chie Filomeno with returning celebrities from last season’s race, Japanese-Brazilian model Fabio Ide, sportscaster Gretchen Ho, and actor Troy Montero. Plus, Toyota promises a memorable Waku-Doki for its motorsports fans at the event with various food concessionaires, a selfie park, and other fun activities such as arcades and skid carts catering to the whole family. Gates open at 9:00 a.m.
