Marvin Mangulabnan, official rider of the BMW Motorrad Racing Team, finishes at the top spot of the Expert/Open Category of the 2017 Philippine Superbike Championship (PSBK) during its 3rd leg, held at the Batangas Racing Circuit last July 8 to 9, 2017.
Starting his first lap of the pre-final race at the 4th position, Marvin resolutely sped through and competed in a close battle with the other racers. He obtained the lead at his sixth lap, and determinedly kept the spot by gaining more speed to create a wide gap between himself and the 2nd placer.
Marvin began the final race at the 4th spot once again, but he immediately advanced to second. Gaining the top spot involved an intense, head-to-head battle against the current lead, but he soon overcame this. To maintain his position and to finish at the top, Marvin had to push the limits of his capabilities and that of his BMW S 1000 RR.
The continued victory of Marvin Mangulabnan is proof of the power tandem that he and BMW Motorrad has created for this season.
