Present to get the weekend underway was Toyota Motor Thailand Co Ltd President Noriaki Yamashita and senior executives. Joining Mr Noriaki were Phuket Governor Narong Woonciew and Phuket Provincial Administrative Organisation (PPAO, or OrborJor) President Rewat Areerob and Phuket Town Deputy Mayor Prasit Sinsaowapak.

Also present were Wiboonchai Na Ranong, Co-Chairman of Toyota Pearl Co Ltd, and Chaipat Na Ranong, Managing Director of Toyota Pearl Co Ltd, together with Trairat Kusuwan, Deputy Managing Director of Toyota Phuket Motors Co ltd, the sole distributor for Toyota in Phuket.

The “Toyota Gazoo Racing Motorsport 2021” racing expo, which tours the country as a championship, aims to highlight the potential of the cars and pickups racing, “which we can’t see from normal driving in everyday life”, Mr Noriaki said.

The motorsport expo also contributes to Toyota’s goals to “Ever-Better Cars", he added, “with motorsport opening up a more in-depth perspective on automobile production.”

“This initiative has inherited the DNA of motorsport to be passed on in the development of special models, especially in the GR Series models,” Mr Noriati said.
