Honourary Mention: Gran Turismo

Anyone who’s a gamer and loves the thrill of the track knows this game. First released in 1997, Gran Turismo (GT) quickly became one of the most iconic racing games for being “the real driving simulator”. Early last year, the game launched GT7 and continues to receive praises for its graphics and gameplay—there’s even a Hollywood movie inspired by the game in cinemas now!

Here’s another bit of did-you-know: GT7 is Toyota’s official game and some of the Gazoo Racing racers such as Nazmir and Naquib first began their racing journey as GT players! They credited the game for being a significant platform that helped “transition virtual racers like [them] into the real world”.

The much-anticipated Toyota event is back with Season 6 this 30 Sept, with the TGR Vios Challenge being its major highlight.

Exclusive to Malaysia, every race car used in this one-make race is identical—the only difference is the driver behind the wheel, and they range from rookies and professionals to celebrities such as Ain Edruce and Zizan Razak. This means that sheer talent and experience alone will decide if a racer wins or loses.

For the racers, it’s also known for being one of the most financially advantageous motorsports competition in the nation. Winners can score prizes worth up to RM70,000 in cash!

What’s a car event without a series of beautiful speed machines on display? Get up close and personal with race cars, learn a thing or two from professional racers, and put your skill to the test with interactive driving and cycling simulators.
