This virtual tournament hopes to keep bringing racing fans of Yamaha the excitement of competition. The tournament puts together McKinley Kyle Paz with Andrei Reyes and Motodeck, Masato Fernando with Dustin Esguerra and Kaisaya, Kerwinn Chang with Leeandro Paredes and Ella Cruz. The Team Captains will lead the way for their teams in this 7-round competition. The purse for each round will be donated to the H.E.R.O Foundation and additional contributions from sponsors will bring the total sum to one million pesos.
Viewers are invited to watch the race and participate in the digital mini games where they can win special items from the sponsors. Minor raffle segments award 10 winners for each of the 7 sponsors for a total of 70 prizes. The major raffle segment gives seven lucky viewers (one per sponsor) the top prize for the night. Viewers can qualify for the Major Raffle draw by screen capturing the sponsor segment and posting it on their page with the hashtags #YAMAHARACEYOURCAUSE #YAMAHAPH #(SPONSORNAME).
