Ferrari PH crowns King at 5th anniversary

BY Raymond G.B. Tribdino

“IT was a sweet, sweet victory,” is how Angie King described her win at the fourth round of the Ferrari Challenge Asia Pacific at Sepang International Circuit just last August. The victory made more special because of a harrowing, almost top podium finish at the Fuji Speedway, where she took 2nd place. 

The top spot was waiting for her at Fuji, were it not for an unexpected spin from which she recovered from quickly.

“During the actual race, I had a great start and I managed to push up halfway through, but above the 12 laps I spun out on the chicane. I lost my position and got confused on where I stood amongst my competitors,” King narrates. 

As Ferrari celebrated 5 years in the Philippines it also crowned King as the Queen of the race circuit with a small get together with friends. The celebration also coincided with the media presentation the Ferrari 488 Spider and GTB, the newest additions to the Ferrari stable.

At Sepang, King had gone to battle with China’s Yanbing Xing who started from pole at the TrofeoPirelli AM Cup. From the race videos, King’s attack was relentless from the get-to.

The pressure on Xing was so much he suffered a hit on the 8th lap clearing a path for King to complete this race and her maiden first place finish. She had literally led the race from start to finish driving closely to Xing, who eventually ended up third place. Japan’s Ken Seto, a seasoned driver drove a steady race to come in second.

“Angie King is well known for her passion for cars and racing and she has been a long-time friend,” said Wellington Soong, Chair and President of AutostradaMotore, the official distributor of Ferrari in the Philippines. 

“It is an honor, a huge honor to represent the Philippines in this race series,” King said in an interview. The last Filipino contender to the Challenge, one of the only competitive Corse Clienti races and one of the most popular one-make series in the world, was Vicente Floirendo in 2015. He had quite a successful season with several podium finishes, which put the Philippines in the map as a country that has highly skilled racers.

“Having her represent the country this year in one of the most competitive non-professional series in the world is an honor, and her podium finish just solidifies the talent of Filipinos in the world of racing, powered by one of the world’s strongest car brands,” Soong added.
During the event, King’s exploits on the race track were captured on a short video specially put together for the event. It showed her expertise behind the wheel around the Fuji Speedway that ended with a 

spin out but eventually a recovery and the 2nd place finish. 

At the Fuji track, thirty-five drivers of 13 different nationalities racedaround the 4.5 kilometer circuit featuring one of the longest straights in motorsport tracks—1.475 km long—enough to stretch the Ferraris to maximum speed before entering back into turn No. 1, a tight right hander.  It also saw a record 23 Ferrari 488 Challenge cars taking part in the competition.

Sepang proved to be a more challenging set of variables, with track temperatures at a blistering 50 degree Celsius. Strategies had to consider tire deterioration and engine management. And despite King’s win, the Challenge heads to Singapore for the penultimate round with all the categories remaining open for a class win.

King,was a newcomer to the race at Fuji, showed track marksmanship in Sepang.

“Coming into the series as an amateur with little experience with professional racing, I was very nervous especially since I didn’t know the track or the car,” King comments about her first Ferrari Challenge experience. 

“I had several challenges during the practice runs, and I wasn’t very confident about how I will do during race day.”

Most of the race contenders took to track the new Ferrari 488 Challenge, the first model in the 24-year history of the race equipped with a turbo engine. It’s the most powerful car at the Challenge series to date, thanks to 670 hp from the V8 3, 9-liter engine derived from the 488 GTB. 

After Fuji and Sepang, she will once again carry the Philippine flag for the succeeding races in in Singapore this September and Mugello, Italy, in October. 

The Ferrari Challenge is one of the programs under Ferrari Corse Clienti, a series of trainings and races for Ferrari clients all over the world. This exclusive group comes together to learn how to drive on track and then achieve the dream of competing in races at the highest standards of safety and quality on the most beautiful tracks in Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific.
