How is it like to race alongside Rhian Ramos and Phoemela Baranda?

Two months ago, our print associate editor Paulo Subido experienced racing waku-doki style for the second leg of the 2014 Vios Cup. In addition to learning racing tips from Tuason Racing School, he was fortunate to share the pit lane with our gorgeous Traffic Stopper Rhian Ramos and Leg 1 celebrity category winner Phoemela Baranda during practice and the race proper. Remember that media racers--which included Paulo, sportscaster Mico Halili and Philippine Star's Angel Rivero--raced alongside Vios Cup regular drivers and celebrities.

In our 10th anniversary issue this month, our associate editor shares his thoughts on the experience.

"I will admit being too much of a gentleman when around attractive women," he writes. "Mental note: This will only drop me further down the order and not score me any pogi points anyway, so I'm tossing chivalry out the window."

Read his story by getting a copy of our September 2014 issue, or by downloading the digital version through the Summit Newsstand. In the meantime, enjoy the video below.

PS: If you want to watch the race live, don't miss the final leg of the 2014 Vios Cup happening on October 18 in Bonifacio Global City.
