/ 12:57 AM August 26, 2012

STANDARD Insurance Carpro will be in the spotlight today when the much-anticipated TRS Cup kicks off at the Batangas Racing Circuit.

The car insurance company teamed up with young champion Basti Escalante in its quest for the overall crown.

Escalante, who’s turning 15 this year, made a big name in the field of karting as a Cadet champion and proved his promising racing talents in clinching the Mini-ROK crown the following year.

Moving up to circuit racing last year, Escalante showed equal intensity and exemplary skills as he wound up a strong fifth place overall against 11 other ace drivers in the field.


Backing Standard insurance and Escalante are Castrol, Bridgestone, Standard Insurance, Coke Zero, OMP, AAP, Speedlab, Emotions, Aguila Auto Glass, Ford Alabang Lifeline Ambulance, and media partners C! Magazine,, Stoplight TV, TurboZone, Inquirer, Philippine Star and Business World.

Standard Insurance has been part of the motor sports scene since 1997. They have supported the careers of many champion race car drivers such as Roland Hermoso, Jojo Silverio, Tuason Racing School founders JP and Mike Tuason, US-based Indy Car driver Michelle Bumgarner and racer-actress Gaby Dela Merced.
