DC Manila, Dirt Showdown Asian Tournament

Last week Aug 4 & 7 at Trinoma, Quezon City and Ayala Center, Cebu. Is the Ultimate Gymkhana video game racer contest. Quite same stint of the world renowned amazing drift Gymkhana DC 43 driver Ken Block. But this time not in field and actual car. But on Xbox 360 game console. And the winner will get an all expense trip to SG aside from more than 65k worth of DC signature items.
 “We are looking forward to make this competition an annual event because we also want to have our own Asian competitors play against US players” said Kenny Wong Wing Hoong developer and codemaster. 

I saw that this is quite similar to Subaru Impreza hand challenge or TRS contest. That the winner will go to Singapore (all expense plus cash) to compete with other countries like Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia for regional finals.
Last month I was at Lateral Drift Manila to feel the Drift Thrill of the Race motorsports impact. That even f1 pros start on constant training on video games like this.

Participants too bad for me that i missed the race by 2 hours in qualifying
But by the end of the race, still the milliseconds counts! And the numbers speed doesn't lie to deter the national team that will fly for Regional Finals. Congrats to Mr Santos!
