Guess everyone in the motoring industry and car community in the Philippines are celebrating that a Filipino bagged the overall winner of the 2015 Nissan PlayStation GT Academy Asian Region this month held in Silverstone, in United Kingdom.
Taking the Trophy is not that easy as the Indonesian driver Andika Rama is a fast driver too. What happened it was, somwhere in lap 4-8, Joward — Jose Gerard's nickname, overtake Andika due to a fatal mistake when he overshoot an Apex.
This is where Joward started to attack Andika, when the car of Andika somewhat committed a fatal error in making a turn. Resulting that he overshoot an apex to giveway to Joward from the Philippines
You will see at the cam that Andika overshoot at the Apex that provided Joward an opportunity to overtake him until the last lap
From that mistake, the Indonesian driver is aggressive to take the pole position as he cuts his time to a 2 of a milliseconds driving Joward pressured. However, the Filipino driver keeps his pace and his rhythm calm until Lap 9 as you can see at the image below that they are bumper to bumper and neck-to-neck in closing the race. However, the Filipino reign supreme at the end of the race.
After that race, a victory party held at the 22 bar and resto in Jupiter Makati for the top 6 racers who arrived from the United Kingdom.
