The Batangas Rac­ing Cir­cuit (BRC)

first opened in 1996, and has since be­come one of the country’s pre­mier mo­tor­sports venues. Local and in­ter­na­tional driv­ers and riders have honed their skills on this track, es­tab­lish­ing nu­mer­ous records and achieve­ments along the way. At first, the track was 2.8km long with 10 turns. Ren­o­va­tions in 2002 saw an ad­di­tional 600m, and in 2005 fur­ther work was done to make it even longer and more chal­leng­ing.

To­day, the track runs 3.7km long with a total of 14 turns, and has a Grade 4 FIA li­cense. It has a 700m drag strip, a 2.8km short course, and a 2km area for go-karts. Its fa­cil­i­ties in­clude per­ma­nent pit lane garages, var­i­ous hos­pi­tal­ity suites and air-con­di­tioned rooms, and a grand­stand. It plays host to var­i­ous car and mo­tor­cy­cle races such as the Philip­pine GT Cham­pi­onship, Philip­pine Tour­ing Car Cham­pi­onship, Na­tional Drag Rac­ing Cham­pi­onship, Philip­pine Su­per­bike Cham­pi­onship, and FORS.

BRC lies on a 25-hectare prop­erty lo­cated in Bar­rio Mali­gaya, Rosario, Batangas. It’s just a short drive from Metro Manila if you’re look­ing to get some track time in. The fee is P2,000 per car and P1,500 per mo­tor­cy­cle. Mem­ber­ship costs P15,000 a year.
