For the past 5 years, the Philippine motorsports industry has been enjoying its share of grassroots racing events that have yielded some of the best racers in the biz today. Examples of these include the FlatOut Race Series and the Toyota Vios Cup.
What comes next after these is an eventual step toward the next level. It’s called the Giti Formula V1 Race Challenge (Giti-FV1RC), a new racing series organized by Tuason Racing School (TRS), the country’s premier racing school. For some, the news surrounding the creation of this series would sound familiar as it made initial headlines last year in a racecar demo event held at the Clark International Speedway (CIS) in Pampanga.
To recap, the Giti-FV1RC is a single-seater racing series featuring standardized machines that run with a mid-mounted 110 hp 1.5L mill, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. It will be held in 4 rounds shared by 2 venues; the CIS and the Batangas Racing Circuit (BRC).
