Attention, Filipino racing fans: this track day event in March is something you cannot afford to miss!
After years of waiting, racers and racing enthusiasts alike from all corners of the country can finally share the racetrack with the best that Yamaha has to offer in the MotoGP through Yamaha’s Apex Arrival. Two world champions, ‘El Diablo’ Fabio Quartararo and Franco Morbidelli, are set to arrive in the Philippines for a track day to remember at the Clark International Speedway on March 4, 2023.
During the beginning of Fabio’s Grand Prix racing career, he was already a well-known figure. He entered the Moto3 class at the age of 15 and was considered a threat from the start for winning the 2013 and 2014 FIM CEV Moto3. He achieved two of his dreams in 2021, becoming world champion and following in the footsteps of his hero Valentino Rossi by joining the Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Team. From bagging his first victory with the Factory Team at just his second race, he went on to secure nine more podium finishes, including four victories, to seize the MotoGP World Championship Title at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.
Meanwhile, Franco Morbidelli, a racer’s son, has been riding bikes since he was old enough to walk. His father Livio, an ex-rider from Italy who built Franco’s first motorcycle when he was just two years old, is the source of his passion for bikes. His third season with Petronas Yamaha SRT was set to begin in 2021, but it was cut short owing to a knee injury, a protracted recovery period, and ultimately the Italian’s move to the Yamaha Factory team. At the San Marino Grand Prix, his beloved home circuit, Franco made his impressive comeback and Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP M1 debut.
This event will not just be an exclusive appearance of the duo but a special track day experience featuring Yamaha’s top racing motorcycles. As an added treat, attendees have a chance to win an all expense paid trip to watch the Malaysia Grand Prix.
As greatness arrives on our tracks, their presence will serve as an inspiration to aspiring Filipino riders who dream of being in the MotoGP.
