The 2nd leg of this year’s Giti Formula V1 Challenge presented a weekend’s worth of thrills and spills under unpredictable weather conditions. Held last July 20 to 21 at the 4.2 km long Clark International Speedway in Pampanga, the country’s top-tier racing event featured both amateur and professional racers battling it out for valuable championship points and racing glory.
To date, the Giti Formula V1 Challenge presents a grid of 15 teams, one of which is CleanFuel-Motul Racing (CleanFuel) with its star drivers Dominic Roque and Ryo Yamada. Both are carrying the team flag in the Amateur Class (Am) and Professional Class (Pro), respectively.
Right from Race 1 one, the duo went all out to beat the competition and the ever-changing weather, with Roque doing all he can, thus earning him a 3rd spot on the podium. His top 3 finish came in as a double celebration as the celebrity-turned-professional racer was celebrating his birthday at the time. On the other hand, Yamada stormed the pack to take the lead and win 1st place.
