Starting this month with our Macho Issue, comedian Ramon Bautista is Top Gear Philippines' newest columnist, dishing out his now-familiar brand of deadpan humor via an illustrated column called 'Basta Driver Sweet Lover'.
To preserve his comedic style, Bautista's column won't be an all-text piece just like the other opinion columns. His column instead features photo illustrations in the form of a comic strip. After all, the author is funniest when his audience can actually see his face.
To those who are wondering what a comedian is doing appearing in a car-magazine column, Bautista is a certified gearhead. He is a huge Top Gear fan and a frequent fixture in drag-racing events. He owns two cars, an old Mitsubishi Lancer and a much-newer Suzuki Swift.
For the first installment of his column, Bautista tackles the all-important topic of being a macho driver. How does one become a macho driver indeed?
A sample piece of advice from Ramon: "Huwag magsakay ng isa pang dude sa kotse. Kung may ibang lalake sa kotse, dapat mukhang posse mo sila."
