John Emerson Inguito once again showed remarkable riding skills in the main 180cc class and delighted Team Yamaha-Spec V. Inguito’s teammates Aljon Valencia and James Mendez finished second and third for an all Yamaha-Spec V podium. The fastest lap time among scooter riders, however, was courtesy of Dustin Esguerra of Zebra-Pertua-MLW-MTRT who finished fourth. After four rounds, Inguito and Valencia are tied with 92 points in the 180cc point standings.
