Date posted on September 17, 2022
“The Hitman” John Emerson Inguito will be seen racing in Philippine soil again after two years. The prominent rider from Cainta, Rizal is one of the star riders in the MotoIR Championship Round 5 taking place at the Tarlac Circuit Hill on September 18. Inguito recently got a podium finish at the Asia Road Racing Championship’s Round 3 UB150 race in Sugo, Japan, giving honor to the country once again with a third place result. He also placed third in the second round held in Malaysia last May.

“Masaya siyempre. May mga taong nag-aabang sa akin na gusto ako ulit mapanood dito sa Pilipinas, sa racing dito. Iba yung pag welcome sa akin, napakasarap sa feeling kasi maraming gustong makakita sa akin na sumakay ulit ako dito,” said Inguito when asked about how he feels to be back in local racing. “Maraming manonood, may mga magagaling na rider na pupunta. Sana mag-enjoy lahat at maging safe. Yun naman ang mahalaga. Dumating tayo sa racetrack ng safe at lahat tayo makauwi ng safe,” he added. 4S1M-Yamaha’s Inguito is one of the competitors in the Underbone Open GP category in MotoIR’s Round 5.
Inguito also sees this opportunity to improve his form for the next ARRC round in Sepang, Malaysia which will be held from October 6-9. He knows that the competition in the Asian championship will be tougher that is why the research and development of their team for their race bike and engine is continuous. His participation in the MotoIR is one of their ways to be prepared for their upcoming ARRC Round 4 battle wherein he is confident to perform well. During the ARRC round in Sugo, Inguito cited his utmost focus as the key to his good showing. “Yun kasi ang number 1 na mahalaga pag naglalaro ka, kailangan naka focus sa nangyayari sa loob. Wala kang ibang gagawin. Pag-aaralan mo lahat ng galawan ng kalaban, babasahin mo lahat ng takbuhan. Kada session, kada labas ko, lahat ng pwede ko i-adjust unti-unti na naming nagagawa. Kahit kulang sa oras, sa susunod na pasok sinusubukan namin na makakapag adjust na. Syempre lahat kami ng kalaban ko nag-aadjust eh. Ngayon kada ajust ko, pagpasok ko, automatic yun may makikita pa ulit na adjustment hanggang sa makapag final kami kung ano ba talaga yung magandang takbuhan. Kailangan marunong ka din mag balance.
The Hitman also shared that he is training riders right now. He is scheduling his students and he is working on establishing a riding school. Kung sino yung gusto magpaturo, by schedule yung ginagawa ko para makapag focus sa rider na tuturuan ko. Doon ko makikita if ang rider may potential and kung nag-eeenjoy sya sa karera. Hahanapin mo yung rider na may potential at gusto nya yung ginagawa nya, nag-eenjoy sya. Yun yung nakikita ko sa mga rider na magaling talaga. Yun yung kailangan nating makita.” For those interested to be taught by The Hitman, you can message him or his facebook page. Soon he will also launch a YouTube channel. For those who want to have their bikes set up, they can go to the 4S1M shop in Valenzuela and also to the RND Motoshop in Taytay, Rizal.
