TRS Ford Fiesta Cup

Have you always wanted to be a race driver but you don't know how? Good news: Tuason Racing School is making things easy for you via the TRS-Ford Fiesta Cup, a "grassroots circuit-car program that provides racing enthusiasts a professional, safe and cost-effective entry point into motorsports." Basically, all you need to do is cough up the money and TRS will take care of the rest, enabling you to "experience wheel-to-wheel racing--without the hassle--at the best racing facilities in the country: Clark International Speedway and Batangas Racing Circuit."

Technical, mechanical and coaching support will of course be provided by the brothers JP and Mike Tuason, who run "the most successful racing team in 2010." The program features two training days and three race days (three races per day; total of nine races).

The package comes with a brand-new 1.4-liter, five-door Ford Fiesta equipped with a roll cage, one set of exhaust system, one OMP racing seat, one OMP seatbelt, one set of OMP pedals, one suspension kit, bodykit, and an alloy-wheel upgrade. Consumables include two sets of tires, synthetic engine oil, two sets of oil filter, and brake fluid.

The package cost? P999,000, which already covers the entry fee as well as the food and drinks for the driver.

The provisional calendar sent to us by TRS indicates that the two training days are scheduled on July 3 and August 20, while September 10, October 8 and November 5 have been penciled in as the race days.

"I would like to formally invite all motorsports enthusiasts out there to participate in the upcoming TRS-Ford Fiesta Cup," says TRS chief instructor JP Tuason. "It is a one-make series that will highlight driver skills on the Philippines' best racetracks. At the end of the program, the car assigned to you is yours."

Interested? You may e-mail info@tuasonracing.com or call (02) 820-4203 for inquiries. Better yet, call the man himself--JP Tuason--at (0918) 929-7859. Who knows? You could be the next Manny Pacquiao. Er, we mean Jody Coseteng. Now, get off that couch, turn that PlayStation 3 off and sign up for the Ford Fiesta Cup.
