Anton outclasses father in PACS 2nd round race
by Harley F. Palangchao

IT RUNS IN THEIR BLOOD -- Winning has become a tradition for bemedalled Filipino racer Carlos Anton and his son, Iñigo, who outclassed his father in the 2nd round of the Philippine Autocross Championship series in Silang, Cavite  recently. -- Contributed photo

Time to pass the baton.

Cordillera’s racing phenom Iñigo Anton dominated the 2nd round of the Philippine Autocross Championship Series in Silang, Cavite to win the overall and open class championships recently.

But what was more memorable was that the 14-year-old Yokohama-Mark Young racer had finally upstaged his multi-titled father, Carlos, in the event that was participated in by 50 racers nationwide.

The Baguio Achiever’s Academy student drove perfectly to take the best time of the day in his initial runs with a time of 41.44 seconds on board his Mohspeed-Honda EF ahead of 2016 four-wheel drive. 

Slalom champion Jevoy Moreno held the best time before the younger Anton at 41.80 seconds.  

The older Anton quickly took the best time in his first run and moved the goal post to 40.27 seconds on board his Castrol-Honda CRX.

The younger Anton would not hold back on his succeeding runs and quickly set the bar to an unbeatable 39.77 seconds, which held up for the rest of the day even with the most gallant of efforts from his father and Estefano Rivera to eclipse the time.

“Iñigo really drove well today and deserves this victory. I’m so happy for him but at the same time feeling that age must already be catching up with me. I guess coming in second to your son is the next best thing to winning,” said the older Anton.

With the wins of the Antons in this leg, they continue to hold on to the top spots in the PACS’ overall class and in the open class where the younger Anton has won both rounds so far.  

The father and son tandem have taken one round each for the overall class with Estefano Rivera running third overall ahead of Jevoy Moreno. 

They now prepare for the 3rd round of the championship which may be held in Maycauayan Bulacan.

The Antons are backed by Yokohama, Advan, Mark Young Racing, Cars Unlimited, Castrol, MP Turbo, Mohspeed, JSD autosport, Special Stage, Kilton, PartsPro PH, Carporn, and Fixstop.
