SINGAPORE, 21 September 2019 – Borneo Motors announced on Friday the top three Singaporean qualifiers for the GR Supra GT Cup Asia 2020 [Regional Round], Toyota’s first-ever regional e-Motorsport event.
A series of competitive races at a national level were held to qualify for the regional round to be held on 25th October 2020, where five national teams hailing from Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, and India will be represented by three qualifiers from each country. Representing Singapore are top winner AR Muhammad Aleef, along with 1st runner up Nur Shazliezhan Bin Hassan and 2nd runner up Jason Tay. To take part in the competition, participants must own the Toyota GR Supra of Gran Turismo Sport on the PlayStation4 driving simulator.
As a part of championing Toyota’s passion and rich heritage in motorsports, as well as the commitment towards building ever-better cars through the learnings and feedback gained from the motorsport, Borneo Motors is honoured to be the official sponsor and host for the national qualifying rounds in Singapore. Apart from fans of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing and the Toyota GR Supra, e-motorsport enthusiasts will be equally delighted to know that the e-Motorsport has evolved to be a key pillar of the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing heritage, building on Toyota’s rich history of innovation and its long-standing involvement in the world of motorsports.
Speaking to the value of the sponsorship for Borneo Motors, Samuel Yong, Director of Marketing and Business Strategy at Borneo Motors, explained, “The passion for e-Motorsports has always been an integral part of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing. With the exciting introduction of the Toyota GR Supra to our line-up late last year, our sponsorship towards the GR Supra GT Cup Asia 2020 is undoubtedly aligned with the spirit of motorsports, and we hope to further fuel and celebrate the strong passion for TOYOTA GAZOO Racing here in Singapore through novel initiatives like this.”
Speaking on behalf of the three qualifiers, winner AR Muhammad Aleef said, “We are grateful to Toyota and Borneo Motors for the opportunity to express our enthusiasm for e-motorsports and sharing it with other like-minded individuals. Through this competition, we’ve had the chance to meet other e-motorsport enthusiasts who are as equally passionate about Gran Turismo Sport and sim racing, and we cannot wait to do Singapore proud at the Regional round come October.”
All three contestants will have a bigger opportunity to represent the region at the Global Finals in November 2020 should either of them emerge as the top winner in the Regional round.
