  • Filipino Race Car Duo Finishes Second at the FIA Asia Auto Gymkhana Championships in Taoyuan, Taiwan
  • Most people don’t see motorsports as a very demanding sport. They only think that it would involve driving it as fast as you can, but there is actually more to motorsports than that.

    After winning the race event’s leg event in Korea, race car drivers Milo Rivera and Carlos Anton are aiming to triple both individual and team crowns  in the Taiwan leg of the FIA Asian Auto Gymkhana Championships. Last October 29, 2017, both race car drivers participated and competed in the 3rd round of the FIA Asia Auto Gymkhana Championships, an event held in Taoyuan, Taiwan and participated by 32 of the best slalom car racers from 16 different countries worldwide.

    With the goal of defending the team crown they have acquired, these race car drivers were also accompanied by delegates from the Automobile Association of the Philippines (AAP) who showed their full support to the proclaimed race car drivers.

    Milo ended up finishing 5th in the individual race while Team Philippines emerged 2nd in the double knockout Nation’s Competition, losing by just 0.1 of a second to the host country, Taiwan, who bagged the grand prize. Despite breaking their winning streak, these racers will definitely come back and once again regain the crown.
