  1. I hope he doesn't drive in public roads. I know a 14 year old self proclaimed "car enthusiast" that drives a Toyota 86 (bought by his parents of course) in public roads. He lives in Tagum city though and we all know how bribery is tolerated there in the province. What's annoying is that he flaunts it in the social media. Imagine that, a freakin' 14 year old kid driving a Toyota 86 and his parents encourages that?! Shame on those irresponsible parents of his!

  2. No disrespect meant, but this guy is heavy which puts him at a disadvantage even before the race begins. Dude, lose some freakin weight if you wanna go fast. Just my 2 cents.

    1. LOL! Weight reduction is important in racing. That's why its ideal to reduce unnecessary weight inside the car, including the driver's excess fats. Hahaha. Better start exercising while there's still time left.
