Having thrilled crowds in Penang and Kuala Lumpur with total attendance of 50,000 visitors, the Toyota Racing Festival is expected to attract a sizeable crowd in Medini City on 19 – 20 January, particularly as the excitement of the Vios Challenge continues to develop with great intensity.
With the championships in mid season and no runaway winner in sight, the duels are beginning to heat up in all three categories where some of the top racing drivers will be competing. Spectators can expect a thrilling weekend of racing on the street circuit that features one of the longest straights of the championship and a hairpin turn, promising lots of overtaking action.
One such race category that fans will definitely be keen to catch will be the Promotional Class where celebrity racers Fattah Amin, Shukri Yahaya, Diana Danielle, Janna Nick, Geraldine Gan, Danny Koo, Venice Min and Shawn Lee will be battling it out for glory. Shukri Yahaya took a popular win in the last event in MAEPS Serdang and he will be out to bring the battle to Shawn once again.
For those who are into the local ‘celeb’ scene, the celebs appearing at the Toyota Racing Festival are: Nazrief Nazri, Intan Najwa, Adiba Yunos, Aishah Azman, Raja Afiq, Ruhainies, Zie Zainal and Aliff Yasraff. They will meet and greet fans and give away prizes, souvenirs. Plus, for younger audience. comic characters Ejen Ali and Comot are bound to be fan favorites.
There will be lots of prizes and souvenirs to be given away throughout the weekend but the biggest prize will be a Toyota Vios Sports Edition that is being offered as the grand prize in the lucky draw.
