The Subic TSD Sampaguita Rally is an exciting and unique event that combines precision driving and navigating the beauty of the Philippine countryside. This year, the event was held in the Subic Bay Freeport Zone on February 19, 2022, and was organized by MP Turbo founder Mike Potenciano.

TSD (Time-Speed-Distance) rallies are all about precision driving, where participants travel a specific route with the distance indicated at a given average speed at a predefined time. The rally is more about maintaining the right speed than going fast. The key to winning the rally is not getting lost and being on time at each checkpoint. The rally format is known as “On Time, All the Time,” and it is a safe, legal driving event on public roads.

There is a misconception that joining a TSD Rally requires a full race or rally car. However, you can actually join with any of your everyday vehicles. In fact, the average speeds are set at a level that is within the legal speed limit, ensuring that the event is safe and accessible for non-professional racers and enthusiasts.

SAFC, one of the leading non-bank financial institutions in the Philippines, is one of the partners for this year’s staging. SAFC president and managing director Joel C. Cruz expressed his enthusiasm for participating in the TSD Sampaguita Rally, highlighting how the event is open to anyone who loves cars, driving, and the great outdoors.

TSD Rally does not require the same level of physical fitness as other motorsports, nor does it need expensive racing equipment or modifications to vehicles. This makes it a fun and accessible activity for individuals or families who enjoy driving and exploring new places. As long as you have a roadworthy car, a good sense of direction, and a willingness to learn, participating in the sport can be a great way to bond with friends or family as you work together to navigate the course and complete challenges. Overall, TSD rallies provide a thrilling and family-friendly way to experience the world of motorsports.

SAFC offers second-hand auto financing, which allows customers to purchase a used car that is road-legal and fits their needs and budget. They offer a wide range of cars to choose from, including sedans, SUVs, and pickup trucks, which are suitable for motorsports like the TSD Rally.
