Tuason Racing, the premiere motorsports organizer in the Philippines, is proud to announce the launch of the Gulf Oil: Top Driver Challenge; a groundbreaking survival competition that will push drivers to their limits and separate the best from the rest.

This thrilling event culminates in a highly coveted opportunity to join the Tuason Racing team and join a Le Mans style race. The competition will first start at the Manila International Auto Show on April 6, 2024 at SMX Convention Center.

The Top Driver Challenge survival competition is definitely not for the faint of heart. Over the course of competition, participants will face a series of challenges designed to test their driving skill, adaptability, and endurance in the most demanding conditions imaginable. From simulators trial to basic racing training contestants must navigate obstacles, outmaneuver competitors, and demonstrate unwavering determination to emerge victorious.

“This competition is not just about speed – it’s about strategy, endurance, and the ability to thrive under pressure. The ultimate prize awaits the driver who can prove themselves worthy of the title of Top Driver,” said Aileen Santos, Tuason Racing VP for Operations.

“We are truly excited to have partnered up with Tuason Racing and witness this exciting competition to know who will remain victorious to represent the brand,” says Michael Francisco, Gulf Oil Philippines, General Manager.
