In contrast to the wet and wild Round 2, the 3rd and penultimate round of the 2018 GiTi Formula V1 Race Challenge was set last October 27 under the unusually hot October sun. It took place at the 4.2 km-long Clark International Speedway in Pampanga, and was organized by Tuason Racing School (TRS), the country’s premier racing school.
Before anything else, here’s a little info about the Formula V1 itself. The Formula V1 is touted as the next level of racing after such grassroots racing events as the FlatOut Race Series and the Toyota Vios Cup. It features an equal playing field as drivers battle against each other for the win using lightweight single-seat racecars powered by 1.5L engines. As such, the event also marks the return of single-seat racing in the Philippines.
