MANILA, Philippines — The Club200 200/50 Endurance Race, touted as the biggest motorsports spectacle in the country this year, has hooked up with food chain giant Army Navy for its Feb. 11 leg at the Clark International Speedway.

Army Navy CEO Eric Puno led the signing of the partnership with Club200, represented by founding members Miguel Bichara, Patrick de Leon and Bong Natividad, together with Club200 secretary Noah Ampil.

The novel motorcycle event, conceptualized by Club200, features three riders sharing one transponder and riding duties in 50 laps of approximately 200 kilometers.

“This is a historic first in the Philippines and motorcycle enthusiasts of all kinds are welcome,” said Bobby Unson, president of the organizing Club200.

Registration is ongoing and will last until race day.

The endurance race is also presented by BMW Motorrad, Ducati, KTM BGC, Pirelli, Angkas, Evo Helmets, APRILIA, Juan Life, Hotel 101 and Merry Mart, and powered by Wheeltek, Triumph, Harley Davidson of Manila and Motoworld, with Manila Bulletin and C! Magazine as media partners.

Club200 is excluding participants currently riding in the National Superbike Series to level the playing field among everyday riders and weekend enthusiasts.

“If you have been dreaming of racing in a racetrack of international standards in an actual competitive setting, then this is your chance of living your dream,” said Red Romero, past president and one of the founding members of Club200.

Slated in the morning on race day are the 50-Lap Endurance Relay Race for Adventure Class open to 400cc-1300cc with 17-19-21 inch Front Wheels and 2/3/4 Cylinder Engines for the Adventure Class.

For details, riders may visit the event’s Facebook page (Army Navy Club 200 Endurance Relay Race).

Entry fee is P7,500 for individual riders and P21,000 for teams.
