Suzuki’s fashionable and economical scooter, the Skydrive Sport also takes the spotlight in racing! The Suzuki Skydrive Sport Cup, a new class for the Super Series Nationwide Championships lets beginner and novice racers experience the thrill of racing as well as the performance and style of the latest scooter offering of Suzuki Philippines.



Out of 17 riders who registered for the Skydrive Sport Cup last March 31 at Robinsons Novaliches, 15 were featured in the race proper which had 20 laps. Suzuki-VMan’s Rmand Salandanan who was in pole position led the race after the takeoff and behind him were teammate Nikko Nambatac, FITech-Speedzilla rider Polo Arellano and the rest of the Suzuki Skydrive Sport Cup racers. Salandanan led for some laps but an unfortunate crash caused him the first place. Claiming the first position after Salandanan’s mishap was Arellano from Davao and the FITech-Speedzilla rider took the lead and win for good. Arellano is grateful to God, his family, mother, father, brother and sponsors for supporting him. It is the first time for Arellano to come to Luzon to race and his immediately impressed the crowd and the other riders with his win.
