MANILA, Philippines – Roxas Boulevard in Makati became the venue for a spectacular stunt show as New Zealand’s Rhys Millen, one of the dominating drivers of the US Drifting series Formula D, showed off his abilities with his 350-horsepower strong Nissan sports car.
With his tires smoking and squealing, the 39-year-old motorsports hero drifted through a row of Jeepneys – to the delight of his passengers – Monday.
Millen’s show was part of the “Action Attack on the Philippines” celebrations staged by energy drink Red Bull ahead of their entry into the Philippine market.
Other sports activities will be taking place in and around Manila in the days ahead as part of Red Bull’s promotion.
