Kopiko Supercross Series invades Dumaguete City

By MST Sports | Apr. 23, 2013 at 12:01am
Another record field is expected to hit the dirt as the Kopiko Astig 3-in-One Supercross Series 2013 moves to its home track in Dumaguete City this weekend.

As of presstime yesterday, 135 riders had already signed up for the two-day event, the fourth of 12 legs in the series.

A staggering 160 riders braved the heat and dust in Bacolod City three weeks ago, competing for over P500,000 in prizes per race. Crowds of 40,000 have been reported for the finals of the series, which has so far touched down in Cebu, Bais and Bacolod.

Veteran Glenn Aguilar of LTM Access Plus leads the way, having towed the field in the Pro Open and Pro Lites categories in the last two races. He is being tailed by Jonjon Adlawan of Team Kopiko and Bornok Mangosong of Atong Racing.

Aguilar also leads the Driver of the Year Award, which is based on cumulative finishes throughout all race weekends. It will be awarded at the end of the season.

The layout of the track at the Dumaguete Business Park, along the South National Highway has been made even more challenging by the organizing Man and Machine Racing Promotions.

Dumaguete will also host night races when the Kopiko Astig 3-in-One Supercross Series returns to that venue in November, the only repeat venue in the nationwide competition.

Riders are competing for prize money and trophies in 15 separate categories, from children five years old and above in the 50 cc class all the way up to the Pro Open (450 cc) category.

Previous races have been marked by intense competition and a lot of overtaking even on jumps and tight turns.

Marshals have been very strict with safety precautions from the very first race.

Friday will mark the official practice day, while Saturday afternoon is the slated start of the various heats. Final races and the awarding ceremony will be held on Sunday.

The next stop for the Kopiko Astig 3-in-One Supercross Series 2013 is Dipolog City in May.
