The event aims to promote various motorsport disciplines, and showcase vehicles within those categories, such as the Philippine Rallycross Series. Aside from the static displays, two other adrenaline-inducing activities will also happen this weekend.

On Saturday, the third “Hoonfest,” hosted by Motul Philippines and East Side Collective, will let every rear-wheel-drive enthusiast loose in a controlled environment. Then, the seventh round of the Philippine Autocross Championship Series will take place on Sunday.
