Wazzup Pilipinas!

Yamaha’s excellence in the racing circuit is know the world over that is why it comes to no surprise who rules the Philippine racetracks. What really makes this interesting is the riders will be assigned to their motorcycle via draw lots; putting not just personal skill to the test but also the greatness of the machine. The top motorcycle manufacturers prepared for a competition that puts the spotlight on their innovations.

The 150cc category featured the Yamaha Sniper 150 leading the way against a field of Honda RS150 riders. It was a tough and challenging battle with top tier talent manning the rival manufacturer but in the end, Rj Commendador stamped the class of the Sniper 150 during the match. The 130-category presented a tough task of outperforming an entire pack of adversaries. Using the Vega Force I, Garry Caneda one upped the competition in the underbone race. This was the same case for him in the 130 AT open in a lineup that saw him and the Mio Sporty outnumbered but still managed to capture the top spot. The most exciting matchup for the day was during the all-female category where Chloe Mallari and C-Let Cuizon bagged the 1st and 2nd place respectively on Yamaha’s Mio i 125, taking down their rival manufacturer.

Although facing tough competition and outnumbered in every turn, Yamaha proved that they can’t easily be outclassed on the track. The combination of talented riders and World Class motorcycles only yield one result, dominance.

Another History Made by Team Suzuki Pilipinas as SAC Capped the 2017 Season

Wazzup Pilipinas!

After a series of podium wins and head to head battle with other Asian contenders, Team Suzuki Pilipinas concluded the Suzuki Asian Challenge (SAC) 2017 which runs in conjunction with the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship (ARRC) with a 2nd Overall Championship win - a first of the country at the said single-make race hosted by Suzuki Motor Corporation and is produced by Team Kagayama.

The final round saw the country's frontrunner April King Mascardo (#16) and Eane Jaye Sobretodo (#22) working together to secure the former's overall standing at 2nd place. On to the qualifying, both were on a good start but Mascardo low side crashed mid-way to his first lap which required him to go out of the track to have his bike fixed. With only 7 minutes remaining, Mascardo went back on the track and still managed to get the 4th position on the grid. Race 1 showed Mascardo achieving his 4th podium win of the season with a 2nd place win against contenders from Thailand on their homecourt. Race 2 capped with Sobretodo preserving the pace of the lead pack for Mascardo to catch up from the 2nd pack which he successfully did. 

Getting the championship title is Punchana Kulrojchalalai of Thailand who also got the 3rd and 1st podium win during Races 1 & 2 respectively. Following on 3rd place is Japan’s Tetsuya Fajita who finished 2nd place on Race 2. 

Here is the summary of Team Suzuki Pilipinas wins over the season: Round 1– Johor International Circuit  Race 1 - Mario Borbon Jr. – 1st Place Race 2 – April King Mascardo – 1st Place Round 2 – Chang International Circuit  Race 1 – April King Mascardo – 1st Place Round 4 – Sentul International Circuit  Race 1 – April King Mascardo – 2nd Place Round 5 – Chang International Circuit   Race 1 – April King Mascardo – 2nd Place

Overall Standings 2nd Overall – April King Mascardo 8th Overall – Eane Jaye Sobretodo 9th Overall – Mario Borbon Jr. 

Team Suzuki Pilipinas raced this season with strong contenders from Australia, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Thailand. This year, the SAC riders competed on board the revolutionary Suzuki GSX-R150 – the sportbike that will transform the lightweight class. Taking design inspiration and technology from the GSX-R1000R, the GSX-R150 is a fully faired sportbike bearing the same DNA of Suzuki’s champion motorcycle – GSX-R1000R. The new GSX-R150 is the newest addition by Suzuki to the Asian market which uses a backbone frame. The street version has a size of 2020mm X 700mm X 1,075mm, with a wheelbase of 1300mm. The weight is 131kg with an engine of 147.3cc with a maximum horsepower of 14.1kW. SAC modified this base machine geared towards racing.

The team’s performance at the SAC 2017 Season underscored that the objectives of the race are achieved. Exposing and training these riders to be world class champions is the main advocacy of the program. This historical win also proves that the Filipinos are a strong force to be reckoned with in the world of motorsports.
