The third edition of the MotoIR Practice Day organized by InsideRACING was a challenging one. It rained at the Carmona Race Track in the morning of November 29 but this did not deter the participants’ riding passion.
The Underbone, Stand Up Scooter, Scooter and MotoIR group riders conquered the wet and slippery track, their riding skills tested and honed during the 5 practice sessions that day. Best lap times in each group were registered in the last session as parts of the track has dried up.

These were Maiko Adapon, Christian Anderson, Wyner Blente and Leeandro Paredes of Gulf-Project Fi-Hardcore Brothers Racing Team, Kevyn Angeles of IS309/Project M, Vincent Bellen of Row1-JCS Racing Team, Lei Peeno Chang of Sumulong/99 Workshop, Reymart de Luna Lining of TSMP, Joseph Allen Magalit of Datatec Philippines, Joey Punio of Punio Racing Team, Joseph Dominique Purino of Team Purino, Ramand Salandanan and Eane Jaye Sobretodo of Suzuki-Kixx-VMan and Djereck Ondillo who used the motorcycle of IS309/Project M’s Ian Samson.
