FlatOut Race Series Introduces New Brackets, Racing Calendar for 2018

The FlatOut Race Series (FORS), the country’s premier grassroots motorsports event, is all set for the season launch this weekend at the Clark International Speedway. Sanctioned by the Automobile Association Philippines (AAP), there will be a total of 10 events in the 2018 calendar that starts on March 3.

2018 brings with it several new enhancements that aim to grow the roster of drivers, raise the overall level of competition, while sustaining the accessibility of the sport. Bracket times in the Time Attack have been adjusted to better group competitors according to their skill. A new Bracket R class also challenges the quickest drivers, with the quickest cars to chase after the track records of the Batangas Racing Circuit and Clark International Speedway. Meanwhile, Grid races continue to promote proper wheel-to-wheel racing in a safe and friendly environment.

Maintaining its position as the event “For Racers, By Racers,” FORS always welcomes new drivers to join. It encourages spectators and first timers to become racers and enter any street-prepped car.

Also part of the FORS calendar is the Philippine Endurance Challenge (PEC). The country’s longest-running and only endurance auto race will host the 4 Oras ng Pilipinas in June followed by the 8 Oras ng Pilipinas in December. Last year’s event saw a record-breaking 33-car grid take off from the starting line where the winning car covered 900 km racing 8 hours non-stop.

FORS also welcomes the newly-established Formula V1 Challenge as part of its 2018 calendar. The single-seater series will join the season on two outings.

“We’re really looking forward to 2018. The new season has a lot in store for both new and seasoned drivers that will make the races a lot more exciting and competitive. We also welcome the addition of Formula V1 to our calendar, which is the next step up the motorsport ladder,” said FORS co-founder Edward Dela Rosa. “FORS’ goal has always been to help develop local motorsports through a fun, easy, and accessible program. With the help of the AAP, we hope to grow the sport even further on our fourth year.”

Entry fee is for the Time Trial, Bracket R, and Grid Race is P 3,500 per class, inclusive of timing and driver insurance. Package discounts apply if a participant decides to join more than one class.
