Sun.Star Pampanga - - SHOW! - BY ERIKA MARIEL GINES Sun.Star Staff Re­porter

CELEBRITY RAC­ERS Jeri­cho Ros­ales, Jas­mine Cur­tis-Smith, Troy Mon­tero, and Fabio Ide on week­end stepped on the pedal with new­bies Aubrey Miles, Gretchen Ho, Ella Cruz, Dominic Roque, and Jake Cuenca for the third leg of the Vios Cup at the Clark In­ter­na­tional Speed­way in Clark Fr eepor t .

The pop­u­lar one­make race which gath­ers over 8,000 at­ten­dees per race week­end, is an­chored on the con­cept “fun in driv­ing, more than the ex­cit­ing world of mo­tor­sports.”

Se­ries Di­rec­tor JP Tua­son of Tua­son Rac­ing School noted that for this year, the cup is com­prised of three driver classes, where the celebrity rac­ers will burn rub­ber on the famed Clark speed­way: the Rota Pro­mo­tional Cl ass, Bridge­stone Sport­ing Class, and the Su­per Sport­ing Class which is now called the To­tal Ex­cel­lium Sport­ing Cl ass.

He em­pha­sized that the Rota Pro­mo­tional Class is where new driv­ers, rookie rac­ers, and celebrity par­tic­i­pants will bat­tle it out for cham­pi­onship points.

The Bridge­stone Sport­ing Class, on the other hand, is where the re­main­ing driv­ers from last sea­son’s Sport­ing Class will com­pete, he added.

It will also be the play­ing field for the top five fin­ish­ers from the Rota Pro­mo­tional Class, as well as the spon­sored driv­ers.

The celebrity rac­ers as well as the other par­tic­i­pants will all be driv­ing an equally-pre­pared ve­hi­cle equipped with orig­i­nal rac­ing kits and gears.

Prizes for the top fin­ish­ers this sea­son in­clude tro­phies for the first, se­cond, and third placer for the Pro­mo­tional Class; P150,000, P100,000, and P50,000 for the first, se­cond and third placer, re­spec­tively, in the Sport­ing Class; P200,000, P100,000 and P50,000 for the first, se­cond and third place in the Su­per Sport­ing Class.

Tua­son dis­closed that the next round is set on Novem­ber 24 to 25 at the Clark In­ter­na­tional Speed­way.

Aside from the race proper, other side ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties like drift ex­hi­bi­tion, con­cert, trade booths, and meet and greet with the celebrity rac­ers.
