Racing phenom Iñigo Anton showed his mettle in the first Vios Racing Festival autocross challenge at the Mall of Asia grounds, which saw the participation of celebrities recently.

The 14-year-old Baguio Achiever’s Academy student first qualified after setting the second fastest time during the first round knockout elimination against 40 racers to book his slot for the next day.

Anton has consistently set the fastest times during the second and third knockout stages to qualify for the finals wherein the top four racers jumped into the Toyota Racing Development-prepared Vios race cars. 

The Mark Young Racing-Yokohama champion Anton battled it out with autocross veteran Michael Scott Carbonel for the finals where the young champion emerged on top by setting the fastest time of the day in the car club division.

“It was really tough. It was my first time to drive the Vios race car and I had to adjust to it with only two runs.  Luckily I set the fastest time when it mattered most,” said the jubilant Anton.  

“The knockout stages in this form of competition leave you with no room for error, one mistake and you are out.  Iñigo held it together all the way to the end,” said Anton’s father Carlos, referring to the international gymkhana format the organizers chose for this event.  

The younger Anton, who was given a special racing license by the Automobile Association of the Philippines for his numerous championships he has won over the years, will now prepare for his first ever Philippine GT circuit race at the Batangas Racing Circuit where he will be racing under the colors of Team Obengers-Parts Pro-DTE.

Anton, who has been giving honor for Baguio and the Cordillera, is supported by Yokohama, Mark Young Racing, Cars Unlimited, Obengers, Parts Pro, Mohspeed, Special Stage, JSD Autosport, Carporn Racing, Kilton, and Kart Plaza.

Meanwhile, celebrity racer Troy Montero nailed the fastest time from the roster of celebrities.

Racers were divided into four divisions namely media, celebrities, influencers, and Vios car clubs.
