Supercars, Car Clubs, JDMs go full-throttle at the first ever Motul 300V Super Fast Track Day

March 20, 2018

Last March 18, 2018, all roads led to the 4.2 km-long Clark International Speedway (CIS) in Pampanga for an all-exciting day of automotive fun and excitement. The reason being was the first ever Motul 300V Super Fast Track Day, which was organized by Mr. Carlos Gono of Motul Philippines.

In brief, the Motul 300V Super Fast Track Day is an event for car clubs to unleash the full power of their rides in a safe and controlled environment. As such, it attracted a number of clubs such as the Lotus Car Club of the Philippines, WRX STi Club Philippines, and Manila GT-R Owners Club, to name a few.

By the numbers, the high-speed race track saw over 80 supercars from different makes such as Aston Martin, Audi, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, McLaren, and Porsche. In addition, there were also more than 100 stock and tuned JDMs (Japanese Domestic Market) cars from Honda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, and Subaru.

The day started off with a gathering of some of the clubs at the Petron NLEX station in Marilao. From there, they headed off to CIS in convoys. Upon arrival, the drivers were briefed by Gono and his co-instructor JP Tuason of Tuason Racing School about track safety and the proper ways of attacking each corner. After the session, the track opened its gates, thus allowing the drivers to have fun and put into practice what they’ve learned.

The event lasted the entire day and was divided into 2 sessions; the morning session for the supercars and the afternoon session for the JDMs. All in all, it was a mighty fun day, and it seems like this won’t be the last time this event will be held, considering its positive turnout.
