The 4S1M Yamaha Racing Team powered by BRT and Racing Force was at the Batangas Racing Circuit last April 29-30 to participate in the first races of the 2017 season. The team was backed by sponsors MDS, Panda, Racing Boy, FDR, MP, and Racing Pro.
The annual Eneos Philippine Motorsports Championships bring together some of the best amateur riders across the country to compete in a series of races in different categories.
For this race, 4S1M brought with it fully-customized Yamaha bikes and scooters, from the branded 4S1M fuel-injected engine to the FDR tires, from the MDS helmets to the custom racing mufflers.
The first day of the two-day competition featured qualifying time trials for the two events that 4S1M participated in: the 150CC Underbone for Lopez, and the 160CC PSR Scooter for Ondillo and Teopengco.
The second day of actual races. Lopez was neck-in-neck throughout the race in his 150CC Underbone Race. He went on to bag the fastest lap time. Ondillo and Teopengco also made good on their own 160CC PSR Scooter Race.
Ronald Uy, 4S1M’s team manager, said: “They all—mechanics, crew, riders—gave their all for the race. We’ll prepare again (for the next leg). We can’t be complacent—we should grow stronger with every race. We just need to keep helping each other out.”
The team heads back to Manila to fine-tune their gear, practice harder, and prepare for the second leg of the 2017 Philippine Motorsports Championships. This leg will be run on June 3-4 at the Clark International Speedway.
