MANILA, Philippines — Castrol-Yokohama champion driver Inigo Anton marked Autocross racing debut in style, winning the Novice Championship at Meycauayan Commercial Complex recently.

The 13-year-old Anton, the youngest and current National FWD Slalom Racing champion, blasted through the 1.8 kilometer stage in 57.01 seconds using the 190hp Mark Young-Mohspeed prepared Honda EF on Neova AD08 tires. He beat Ryan Ablang (1:00.99) and Brian Ngo (1:01.13) for the Novice best time of the day.

Anton also turned in the fourth fastest time overall (55.83 seconds) in the all-Honda class, which drew over 100 seasoned drivers. 

“Inigo really worked hard for this and practiced throughout the Christmas break to be in top form. We were surprised with the top-caliber skills he showed since we didn’t expect him to run at such a fast pace in his Autocross debut,” said Inigo’s father and 2009 Philippine Autocross winner Carlos Anton.
