Video: Watch our day spent with Michele Bumgarner, Mazda 3

It was humid on June 21, the day of the "Head To Head: Can You Beat Michele Bumgarner In An All-New Mazda 3 Skyactiv?" at the SM Mall of Asia open grounds. It was the perfect day for ice cream.

But a quick visit to the mall to get a frozen treat could make you miss an important moment in the ongoing action. One toppled cone could end a contender's quest to try to race against Michele. So we lingered.

Now, if you missed the event completely, we bring you a recap through this short video. You'll get to see how relaxed Michele looked as she took Category B winners for a joyride around the track. It looked like a walk in the park for the pro. Meanwhile, instructors sat down with our finalists as they buckled up and took to the track.

Also, watch that moment when our very own editor-in-chief Vernon B. Sarne raced head-to-head against Mazda Philippines CEO and president Steven Tan. Guess which boss won.

We hope you'll enjoy the video as much as we had fun at the event. Should we cook up another match, would you like to take a crack at racing against Michele?
