Petron sends off Rain Forest Challenge Philippine Team
Petron Corporation once again proved its commitment to Philippine motorsports as it sends off the country’s representatives to the Rainforest Challenge (RFC), considered as the most extreme off-road competition and the ultimate challenge for 4×4 enthusiasts. The Philippine team will be contending against 30 country teams from Asia, Europe, and the Americas in the RFC Grand Finals to be held from November 23 to December 5, 2018 in Kelantan, Malaysia.
Representing Team Philippines are Eduardo ‘Randy’ Sobrepeña and Ronnie ‘Boxy’ Malonzo from the Pampanga Off-Roaders Club Inc (PORCI). They were the winners of the RFC Global Series Philippines Championship Race last August 24 to 27 in Pampanga. The grueling competition tested off-road driving, vehicle winching and recovery, bushcraft, camping, mechanical skill, and survival. Sobrepeña and Malonzo will be driving a Land Cruiser FJ40 in the RFC Grand Finals.
Petron is the official fuel and engine oil partner of the RFC Grand Finals Malaysia, as well as the Philippine Championship Race. The demands of extreme off-roading will put Petron’s world-class products, particularly its Petron Turbo Diesel and Petron Rev-X Turbo HTP, to the ultimate test.
At the RFC Grand Finals Malaysia from November 23 to December 5, international competitors from over 30 countries will field test the exceptional performance of Petron Turbo Diesel and Petron Rev-X Turbo HTP as the official fuel and engine oil for the 10-day off-road jungle adventure competition. Under the most extreme conditions of mud, rain-soaked jungle, swollen river beds, monsoon, humidity, insects, and physical hardship, the competitors from 30 countries worldwide can be certain that Petron Turbo Diesel and Petron Rev-X HTP are the best match to optimize the performance of their vehicles.
