Fierce battle seen as Rodriguez, Santos collide

/ 04:15 AM October 19, 2019

One of the fiercest battles for the premier Yokohama GT 200 national title in recent years comes to a close on Saturday and Sunday in the 2019 Petron Philippine Motorsports Championships at Clark International Speedway in Pampanga.

Defending champion Edwin Rodriguez, back on top of the standings after ruling Race 9 at Batangas Racing Circuit last month, holds a slim 4-point lead over rival and Race 10 winner Paulo Santos heading into the finale of the six-leg series.

Erstwhile leader Andre Tan fared no better than third place in the previous leg but stayed in the title hunt, 17 points behind Rodriguez and his Honda FD.

Justin Neri continued his amazing climb in the Yokohama GT 150 leaderboard, topping the last two races—his fifth and sixth of the last eight contests—to move within 14 points of Lewy Manio. Russ Agapito lay 39 points behind at third.


Drew Manio extended his victory spree in the GT 100 class to six and all but clinched the championship going into the weekend’s races with an unbeatable 49-point lead over Carlo Angelo Mojica.

Runaway leader Fil Gulfin will cement his title claim in the Classic Aspirated Cup.
