August is National Language Month; and it’s a time where we recognize and learn about the importance of communication and culture preservation..

For gearheads, communication comes in many forms, whether it’s a friendly honk at a car that’s the same make and model as yours, or randomly chatting up a guy with a nice ride at the car wash. We share in a culture of interest that’s not unlike the larger one we share as a people. Sure, we might disagree sometimes and bicker about which brand or car is better, but we do it all for our shared love of automobiles.

So this National Language Month, let’s enjoy the wonderful car culture we’ve created together by visiting these upcoming car shows. Sakay na!

Who here loves sports as much as cars? If so, then this might be your kind of show. It promises to mix the two fields for two days of action-packed fun. There will also be models and live bands on the field; so don’t miss this one if you’re looking for something different to do on a weekend.

World-class fuel is a universal language for all cars, so gas up at your nearest Petron branch now.
