Date posted on February 19, 2020
The Super Scooter class of the Super Series has been a battle of top scooter riders from different parts of the country.
The final round held on October 20 in Silang, Cavite saw another dominating performance from April King Mascardo of the Suzuki-VMan racing team. In pole position, Mascardo from Davao on his trusty Suzuki Nex was unstoppable and led the race from start to finish. Best lap time of the 15-lap race was also courtesy of the Suzuki-VMan star rider. Mascardo also won the Super Scooter races in Davao and Bacolod.
Eane Jaye Sobretodo, another Suzuki-VMan rider who raced on a Suzuki Skydrive Sport Fi, placed second in the last Super Scooter race of the year. Kerwin Chang of Racing Force placed third.
Fourth and fifth placers were SGKRT-Pitsbike riders Ellijah Olayvar and Tracy Gaddi. Chang, Olayvar and Gaddi all used Yamaha Mio scooters.Olayvar’s effort in competing and travelling for the Super Scooter class were all worth it as he was hailed as the 2019 Super Scooter champion. Olayvar from Antipolo, Rizal won the Super Scooter race in his hometown back in May and gained points from podium finishes and decent perfor-mances in the other races of his category.
“First of all, maraming salamat kay God sa safe race at di mo kami pinabayaan. Thank you Team SGKRT, solid ang pagod ng buong team. Simula second leg hanggang mag- final leg nandiyan po kayo na laging tumutulong sa akin. Thank you kay Tito Goku Ortiz na team manager at all around na din ng team, kay Kuya Kristian Espinas sa all out support and lahat ng payo, kay Sir Mark Madera ng Pitsbike, sa teammate ko na si Tracy Gaddi, sa family, mother and father ko, Team Pwede na Yan, Kuya Borgy Mayonte, Antonio Barirak, Paulo Pulino, Rovic Moreno, Alan Isla, Rence Dineros sa motor, Team Teston Motoshop, Dwight, Derozan, Romil Bautista at sa mga sponsors ko na SGKRT, Pitsbike, ECU Shop, Grease Monk, YSR, Kixx Oil, Local Recipe at Toniworks. Kung hindi po dahil sa inyo, hindi ko po makukuha ang goal natin. Sobrang worth it lahat ng pagod, puyat at sakripisyo ng buong team,” shared Olayvar.
It was indeed a victorious campaign for SGKRT-Pitsbike as Tracy Gaddi got the Vice Champion title in the Super Scooter category of the 2019 Super Series.
