The 4th leg of the 2017 Philippine Superbike Championship (PSBK) held last August 5 to 6, 2017 at the Clark International Speedway subjected all its contenders to a fierce battle that radically tested their riding skill and gumption.
BMW Motorrad Racing Team professional rider Marvin Mangulabnan held strong at the Pre-Final Race—starting things off with a holeshot and owning the 1st place all throughout the 10 laps. Taking advantage of the hot and bright weather, Marvin did not hold back as he daringly sped ahead of all the other racers. Despite their efforts to overcome him, Marvin still ended the Pre-Final Race at the top spot.
The vigorous and immensely competitive spirit of the PSBK carried over to the Final Race. Despite the rain pouring before the competition, all the riders geared to win. Every millisecond became a make or break moment. Marvin began the Final Race at the 4th position and persevered until the very end, finally finishing at the 3rd place.
Ending the 4th leg of the PSBK at the 3rd place of the Expert/Open Category, Marvin Mangulabnan and BMW Motorrad are even more determined to race for victory and to claim the coveted top spot—beginning with the next leg of the PSBK.
