As part of its 21st-year celebration, Tuason Racing, the premier motorsports company in the country, wanted to give racing enthusiasts another career path on the global motorsports competition scene using its homegrown Formula V1 racing program. This is mainly due to the ongoing pandemic, which prohibits physical races as it violates the following safety protocols mandated by the government. That said, it’s quite nice that a virtual racing platform was properly utilized in order to deliver that almost equal experience on the track. This event was also supported by Autocar, Auto Deal, C! Magazine, Inquirer Mobility, Time Attack Manila, and Wheels Philippines.
