Yokohama Philippine GT heads back to CIS for Round 2

This June 20 to 21, the 2015 Yokohama Phil. GT Championship will head back to Clark International Speedway (CIS) for the series’ 2nd round. The race weekend will again feature a 10-lap sprint race in the morning and a 15-lap GT race in the afternoon.

Looking back, only 10 racecar drivers went on to battle it out for the championship lead in Round 1. This opens plenty of room for more racers to participate, especially now that competitions have been brewing in the series’ GT 300, GT200, GT150, and GT100 divisions as well as the support races.

Being the only racer in his division, Veli-Matti Kaikkonen leads the GT300 standings. Will he be able to see a more challenging race this weekend? We’ll soon find out.

In the GT200 division, a 3-way battle rages on between Richmon Dela Rosa, Paolo Mantolino, and Walter Zamora, while newcomer Patrick Dela Rosa comes fresh out of his maiden victory in the GT150 division.

Ivan Diaz meanwhile, marked double wins in the GT100, but is closely chased by Joginder Sin in 2nd place and Edwin Rodriguez in 3rd in his brand new Mazda Ph sponsored Mazda 2 SKYACTIV race car.

Other support races for this weekend include the Philminiracers Championship Series, Classic Aspirated Cup, and the Sparco Bracket Circuit Racing.

Also featuring this weekend is the newly-established Sparco Grid Race which allows amateur racers to ignite their passion for racing on a whole new level. This race requires a minimal entrance fee of P1,500. Safety requirements are helmet, seatbelt, pants, and closed shoes. Racing suits, however, are recommended but not required.

The 2015 Philippine GT Championship is sanctioned by the Automobile Association of the Philippines (AAP), sponsored by Yokohama Tires Sales Philippines, Inc., Sparco, and Aguila Auto Glass with support from the official dyno provider, Speedlab.
