The young phenoms!
The 4th leg of the Philippine Scooter Racing Championships held at the Clark International Speedway last August 4 & 5 tested the mettle of young rider #117 Jolo Suba, who for the first time this season, started 2nd at the grid in the PSR 130cc category. Slowly inching at his rival for the lead, eventually, the 9-year-old phenom blazed past his rival and proved that he deserved to take the four-peat victory.
