Philippine motorsports’ golden girl Bianca Bustamante continues to make waves in the international scene. The last couple of years have been quite eventful for Bianca. She joined the new, all-female series F1 Academy when she got a seat in Prema Racing’s three-driver lineup.

After scoring two wins in the F1 Academy, she was also picked up by McLaren to be part of its driver development program. This means that her car will be wrapped in the iconic orange livery of the British racing team.

Well, she continues to make history for our country. This time, she joins BlackArts Racing. The team announced that Bianca will be driving car number 19, one of its two cars at the Guia Circuit in Macau for the Formula 4 South East Asia Championship.

In a Facebook post, Bianca shares that this chance to drive in one of the most challenging and most unforgiving tracks ticks another item on her list. She also thanked some new sponsors that support her aim of putting the country on the map of international motorsports.

The race weekend will be from November 11 to 12 at the Guia Circuit of Macau. This is just another chance for us to show our support and continue rooting for her.
