The country’s premier grassroots motorsports event called FlatOut Race Series is back for an exciting 3rd season. Set to begin this March, it will feature a total of 8 rounds and 2 endurance races.
Each round will happen at either the Batangas Racing Circuit (BRC) or the Clark International Speedway (CIS) and consist of a Time Attack and a Grid Race. Participants are segregated into brackets according to their lap times to create an even playing field.
Our goal for 2017 remains the same, to development local motorsports in a fun, easy, and accessible program in a proper, safe environment where true skill can thrive. With this, we've introduced several new regulations to further improve safety standards for all participants. The Automobile Association Philippines (AAP) will also continue to watch over the races, helping us enhance our knowledge as organizers,” said FlatOut Race Series co-founder Edward Dela Rosa.
On the other hand, racecar drivers can put their skills and teamwork to the test in the country’s longest-running and only endurance auto race—the GT Radial Philippine Endurance Challenge (PEC). This season will include the new 4-hour race in June and the grueling 8-hour challenge in November.
Entry fees for FORS is at P3,500 per class, inclusive of timing and driver insurance. A special discount is at hand for participants who will join more than one class. For more information, visit or message the official FlatOut Race Series page on Facebook.
