Top Gear Philippines

Two weeks ago, we published a story on a potential racing career for former Miss Universe and national sweetheart Pia Wurtzbach. We were kidding, of course—selfies in racing helmets aren't much to read into. But the Filipina beauty queen's social media activity on Valentine's Day might lead some of you guys to think otherwise.

In the previous story, we said the full race car driver look would suit her. Well, here she is in full gear at the Carmona Racing Circuit in Cavite. She and her boyfriend—Filipino-Swiss racer Marlon Stockinger—spent Valentine's Day go-karting together before taking to their Instagram accounts to share their experience. Talk about #relationshipgoals.

Pia admits that's she's new to the whole karting scene, saying Marlon had to play teacher during the couple's Valentine's date. "My first time go-karting with the best teacher @marlonstockinger! Our idea of a perfect date," she posted on her account. She added that she wants to go again. Please do, Pia.


Marlon was a little more conservative in his post which contained a simple Valentine's Day greeting. Though we think his expression in the photo above is enough to do all the talking.

Hopefully the next time we see her in a racing suit is inside an actual cockpit. We're keeping our eyes peeled.
