This will add more attraction to our town in Silang, which is known for its perfect weather and very near in the city of Tagaytay. We invite you to visit Silang, and for those who want to learn Motocross, they can go with their family and check this place in Barangay Pasong Langka.”
On the other hand, Cleanfuel Motocross Park president and CEO, Atty. Jesus “Bong” Suntay, said: “We started this race to provide an opportunity for the young and aspiring riders practicing on our track to show their skills and talent. We realize that it would be better if they competed in different categories and held an invitational series in preparation for the national series. We’ve been supporting Motorsports for years now. We started in 4-wheels with the Formula V race were our Cleanfuel team became the champion and now we are active in motocross. The overall winner of the Invitational series will represent Cleanfuel Team in the national series.”
The highlight of the event was when veteran and motocross superbike champion Jolet Jao displayed his signature skills as he bagged veteran’s Expert category. VJ Ocampo and Begie Bucag placed second and third, respectively. Meanwhile, the newly mini electric bike Stacyc category winners were Joaquin Gonzales (1st place), Felicia Forsuelo (2nd place) and Gabby Yuzon (3rd place).
