What a race!

CIMG5960The only weekend in September that wasn’t stormed on…was the weekend that the first car adventure race in the Philippines was held…

The rules:

a Point to Point Race with Checkpoints (Manila – Baguio – San Fernando, La Union – Dagupan – Subic) The goal is to reach the Finish Line with the least time and within the limits of the law. A minimum time from point to point shall be set by Race Director using a theoretical computation between distance and maximum speed limits.

Every minute under theoretical time will mean incurring a penalty of plus 5 minutes. Map & Route were emailed to Participating Teams 5 days before Event Day, but Checkpoint Locations are only given on the day of the Event. There shall be one minute interval for the start of each car and Competitors will be issued score cards to keep track of route and times.

The result:

I was able to witness this cool event that brought together 36 teams with members from all over the metro. Starting point was held at the Ortigas Home Depot parking lot. As early as 6:00am the place was buzzing with excitement, with live coverage from radio station WAVE 88.3. Everyone was treated with hearty breakfast as send off.

The race took the teams through checkpoints all across the northern provinces all throughout the day. Each teams had stories and adventures to tell. Win or lose—everyone was energized by M150 energy drink. The race ended at Subic capped by a fun dinner and party that lasted througout the night.

All in all, it was a great event, with special favor from the Heavens (no storms!). Truly an awesome event for an awesome energy drink! M150, it works! 🙂
