THE screeching tires became the soundtrack of the moment, as the full traction of drag race cars gave the crowd an experience of a ‘need for speed’ movie-like scene when the 4S1M kicked off its first-ever Speed Fest at the Clark International Speedway last December.
The 4S1M Speed Fest was organized in celebration of 4S1M-Yamaha Racing Team’s series of wins all throughout 2017.
Mark Tan, owner of 4S1M admitted that the whole team was very excited to carry through this flagship event.
“This is our first time pa lang to do an event, a big step for us,” Tan said. “We also hope to organize the Speed Fest annually.”
From the pre-planning to actual execution of the Speed Fest, the team made sure that everything is in order. The crews set up the stage early in the morning. The 4S1M booth, filled with motor engines and racing parts on display, was also installed in the area.
Soon, the flock of people arrived to witness a legal drag racing brought by the pride of City of Malolos Bulacan—MVB Cup Hari ng Mio. The participants, who came from all over the country, positioned themselves carrying their dialed in motorcycles and blazing determination in the drag strip. As the riders fired up their engines, the strip heard an audible cheer from the crowd—adding more to the adrenaline rush of the moment.
Meanwhile, the car drifting and Touge battle by Dr. Drift brimmed a ‘burnout’—giving the fans a movie scene of noisy spinning tires and full tractions as the smoke engulfed the track.
The Clark International Speedway was transformed into a mosh pit of raving racing cars and motorcycles, flashing its striking neon-like colors of headlights and wheels rims, synced into the beat of a ‘fast and the furious’ type of music.
Cars and motorsports fans and enthusiasts feasted their eyes on the motorcycle show by Run 17’s and the car show by Formula1. From pickup trucks showing off tough wheels, thunderous speaker systems boarding SUVs and sedans, classic engines of retro cars, to a modern and sleek physique of motorcycles, the Speed Fest by 4S1M clearly did not disappoint the attendees. Following the exhibition, victors of the motorcycle drag race, car drifting and touge battles were awarded with trophies and cash prizes.
Extending the excitement of everyone, the raffle draw took place wherein an orange Yamaha Aerox motorcycle for the grand prize, a 45” Flat Screen TV for the second prize, and a refrigerator for the third, were all taken home by the lucky winners.
