New winners emerge from Phoenix Pulse Formula V1 Virtual Cup Race 2
The Race 2 of the Phoenix Pulse Formula V1 Virtual Cup race has produced new winning names, as Julian Colvin Tang and Alexis Clapano were crowned the latest champions in their respective categories.
Shown at the Tuason Racing Facebook Page last Saturday (October 17 Saturday), Tang and Clapano conquered the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza racetrack replica in the Reverse Grid Position of the PC-based Assetto Corsa game.
Tang was the king of the Race 2 Amateur division, with Race 1 champion Andre Varquez in second place and Real Lerpido at the third spot in the Virtual Cup backed by Phoenix Petroleum Philippines, Inc., LG Philippines, BlueChem, Bendix, PC Express, and Family Mart.
Although failing to get the top spot for the second time around, Varquez got the fastest lap time of 02:02.234.
Meanwhile, Pro Class category race leader Clapano was in tight competition with Estefano Rivera, and Terence Lallave. Riding the strength of the fastest lap time of 2:01.899, Clapano snatched the pole positioning in the second lap from Rivera and kept it until the finish for the win.
Crossing the checkered flag on the second spot was Luis Moreno, who was in close fight with Zuriel Sumodobila. The latter lost control and failed to contend.
Taking the third spot on the podium was Daryl Brady.
As part of its 21st anniversary, Tuason Racing wanted to give racing enthusiasts another career path in the global motorsports competition scene using its homegrown Formula V1 racing program.
