Vios Challenge continues to excite

The Vios Challenge consisting of three different categories showcases a strong competition between top-class drivers and artists alike. From Super Sporting, Sporting, and Promotional classes, you can expect some exciting wheel-to-wheel racing action all weekend round at their specially designed track using race-spec Toyota Vios.

Prince of Drift, Tengku Djan, in action

Speaking of Promotional Class, you can watch some of Malaysia’s top celebrities battling it out for top supremacy. From the talented beatboxer, Shawn Lee, to top Malaysian comedian, Nabil Ahmad, bragging rights on who’s the best race car driver is definitely up for grabs.


Other artists who are taking part in the Vios Challenge are Khai Bahar, Diana Danielle, Janna Nick, Shukri Yahaya, Nabila Razali, Wany Hasrita, Ain Edruce, and Syafiq Kyle. Round 3 also showcases the penultimate round which means that the competition between drivers in all categories is just going to get more intense.

Art of Speed Malaysia showcases ‘Toyota legends’

The folks from Art of Speed Malaysia is also present to inject some more excitement for fellow attendees of TGR Festival here in Penang. Showcasing some very fine merchandise from the likes of MoonEyes and more, you can also check out a couple of iconic Toyota Corolla KE10 which are on display at the AOS booth.

The one that belongs to UMW Toyota has been fully restored to its original and running condition while the other is fully modified into a very beautiful two-door station wagon. Best of all, there will be engine demonstrations for both cars where you can witness them come to life and revved up to produce some sweet, sweet tunes.

There will also be some arts and crafts projects for kids and adults alike where you can participate in customising your very own wall clock and Toyota KE10 wooden car models, facilitated by some of Malaysia’s greatest automobile artists and pinstripe masters. AND IT’S FREE.

Toyota 86 drift shows from Toyo Tyres

If racing is in your blood, you can also appreciate some fine drifting action at the event grounds of Stadium Batu Kawan where a pair of fully modified Toyota 86 get some wheel-spinning action for the crowd’s entertainment. That’s a double deal when paired together with the Vios Challenge for all you motorsport fans out there.
