Team Suzuki Pilipinas Honored at Victory Party

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Congratulations to Team Suzuki Pilipinas, namely April King Mascardo, Eane Jay Sobredo and Mario Borbon Jr., for their outstanding record-breaking wins at the previous races held in different countries in Asia. You made us Filipinos proud again for having talented fellow Filipinos who could easily outwit and stand out among the other races in international competitions.

In honor of the three, Suzuki Philippines held a victory party at the F1 Hotel on June 16 to celebrate the magnificent wins of these three motorcycle riders representing the Philippines.

With the Indonesians identified as their toughest competitor, Team Suzuki Pilipinas would want to come up with a strategy to prevent further "targeting" by the said competitor. At a video playback shown at the victory party, we saw how one of the members of Team Suzuki Pilipinas was boxed in so he won't get the chance to lead the race. However, it was fortunate that our team never lost the determination to succeed no matter how the competition is seemingly becoming unfairly aggressive.

The night was filled with music and beer after the short program led by Hiroshi Suzuki and the rest of Suzuki Philippines. We had a short interview with Hiroshi San and also with Team Suzuki Pilipinas so watch out for them in our YouTube channel at
