Toyota is giving e-motorsports a go by launching the new GR Supra GT Cup with Gran Turismo Sport for the game console.

 

This is Gran Turismo Sport’s first global one-make series and Toyota Gazoo Racing is an official partner of the FIA-certified Gran Turismo Championships, an online competition series.

 

Set to debut on 14th of April, Toyota's racing arm mentioned that it is more than just about creating entertainment as it feels that this would allow the company to use the experience and feedback gained to “support their mission to build ever-better cars in the future.”

 

The competition will run till August 2019 with preliminary online rounds held worldwide, before the finals event at the Tokyo Motor Show this October. Players who want to compete need to be six years or older and own the game for the PlayStation 4.

 

Dubbed FIA Gran Turismo Championship World Tour 1, non-players can also catch the action on the official Gran Turismo YouTube channel.

    The mad things drivers do to avoid parking charges!

    When there is a will, there is always a way.  This sure rings very true for this particular HDB parking offender as shown in the video posted by SG Road Vigilante. Dated on the 3rd of June, the video is pretty much self-explanatory. While we don't know what prompted the Toyota Prius driver to do that, sharp eyed viewers would have noticed that all that madness was quite unnecessary as the gantry opened up towards the end of the 48 second video. As usual, the comments on the page weren't exactly constructive.. But this one was pretty funny. Watch what this guy does here! 102516826_186940102600538_4929118169282379776_n.mp4

    Singer rants on Facebook about cars making "loud explosive noise"

    A popular local Singer/Songwriter has taken to her facebook page to rant about cars making loud explosive noises where she lives. 1 bang 2.mp4 In her post, Beverly Morata Grafton pointed out in her post she has been experiencing "exhausts have been popping off like gunshots from 10:30pm and counting. And like every weekend since mid April, they will do so until 4am plus in the morning..."  From her photos and videos that she provided, we gathered that these incidents happenen along Yishun Ave 1, where Sinopec Yishun is situated at. This stretch has a speed camera but car enthusiasts are known to still gun their cars there while heading towards the Yishun Dam. We will not go into the rest of her post as it can be a bit demeaning and vulgar. For those who are curious, you can view her post below. In the video that was taken on the 25th of April, we could identify a white Volkswagen Golf accelerating away quickly from the petrol station before letting off some loud bangs, much to the annoyance of the songwriter.     Being a post on the writer's personal page, it was no surprise to find the comments supporting her views.    But what do you guys think? More pops and bangs for everyone? Or should we cooperate for quieter neighbourhoods?

    Vios Driver think he F1 racer, look more like F9 handling

    A video of a Toyota Vios racer wannabe losing control on All Singapore Stuff's Facebook page has gone viral! In a short span of one hour, the video has gathered 170 likes and 61 shares! If you haven't seen the video, here you go, courtesy of All Singapore Stuff LMAO It's a short 17-second video that you can't help just playing over again and again and laughing your ass off. In the video, you'll see the Toyota Vios speeding pass the dashcam driver like an F1 race car as both cars approach a gradual bend. The keyword here is GRADUAL. Somehow, the Vios manages to spin out of control and hits the cement portion of the highway barrier… not once but twice. Ouch. Damages This incident so viral that even my father sent me pictures of the accident. Looks bad for the poor Vios. And the irony of it all The sign says “BE PATIENT I’M LOWERED”. Can you not see the irony in this? Here’s a zoomed-in view. What the people say Yeah, lucky siol. Some resourceful people managed to find the driver's IG handle. This post made me LOL again. I think he's not smiling, he crying.

    Honda Stream gets Covid-19 slammed out of it by BMW 6 Series at Changi Village

    This accident happened at Changi Village hawker centre carpark. You can watch the full video of the accident below courtesy of Roads.sg (if you haven't already seen it)   What’s happening Honda Stream exits the carpark and attempts to make a right turn on a two-way road. The driver seems oblivious to the fact that there's a stop sign and inches the car onto the main road. The Honda Steam driver then jams the brakes and in less than a second, what looks like a BMW 6 Series crashes into it. Hard. Different points of view If you replay the video, you'll notice that even after the crash, there were no cars that went past on the other side of the road. Meaning, the Honda Stream had more than enough time and space to avoid the accident. Jam break for what? The driver also ignored the stop sign and failed to do proper checks before moving off. On the other hand, based on the sheer force of impact, the BMW was going pretty fast too. What the people say This sounds legit. I think it's the Honda Stream driver's fault. The BMW driver sway balls. Also, there's a lesson here people - Stay the #$%& at home.
