Never, in my wildest dreams did I imagine myself racing down the race track… but, you guess that right, with enough determination and a lot of courage, I did it!
Last Monday, yours truly was invited to try kart racing at the City Kart Racing in Circuit Makati using the latest innovation from Philippines’ leading independent oil company, Phoenix Petroleum.
The engines are roaring on the open pit while the air is filled with both of burnt tires and excitement! We were called to the briefing area, wherein we were taught the basics that we need to know –
Yellow flag for danger.
Blue flag for information.
Black flag for Finish.
Right pedal to accelerate.
Left pedal to stop.
We worn our head socks and after placing my helmet on my head, I realized that when you’re in there, you’re basically on your own, that the commentator’s comments (even when he’s calling you out) is for the audience. I just hope that I won’t crash and unravel the stack of barriers or worse, turn the vehicle upside down and explode with me in it. Me and my silly dramatic antics. First round, I familiarized myself on the track. The City Kart track was designed with an inclined bridge, a small tunnel and sweeping corners here and there. I’m resolute, I won’t race, I just have to drive and feel the breeze of wind on my arms and the scenery of green across the track, myself on the big screen and wave high to Kulay-ot as I pass him by.

I guess resolutions are naturally hard to maintain, in my case, pressing the accelerator is unexpectedly easier with my engine powered by Phoenix Pulse Technology, I enjoyed the fast lane going down the bridge and although smoothing a sharp curve was a challenge, it gets better every time!
Thank you so much Phoenix Petroleum for the awesome experience!
