Defending champs rule Petron race
Defending champions John Emerson Inguito and Gian Carlo Mauricio ruled the kickoff leg of their respective bike series in the 2019 Petron National Motorcycle Racing Championships at Batangas Racing Circuit in Rosario, Batangas, recently.
Inguito sneaked past RR Espiritu in the last lap to rule the Expert class of the FDR Philippine Underbone King series.
Inguito timed 15:32.364, 5.108 seconds clear of Espiritu, with Herbert Lopez making it a 1-2-3 Yamaha finish.
It would have been a victory double for Inguito were it not for Mauricio’s decisive lunge at the finish in the FDR Philippine Scooter Racing Championship.
