MOTOKHANA 2010 Begins at the 4thInside Racing Bike Festival and Trade Show
MOTOKHANA 2010 is finally here for the many who have been awaiting the 2nd year of this revolutionary rider skills challenge!
And what better way to launch its sophomore stint in the Philippine 2-wheel sporting world than at the year’s biggest motorcycle exhibition — the 4th Inside Racing Bike Festival and Trade Show on 27-28 March 2010 at The Megatent in Pasig City.
And just like in its pilot year, the 2010 MOTOKHANA is presented by CASTROL ACTIV PREMIUM.
After a very warm reception and a successful three-day stint in Mandaue City, Cebu during the 16th Annual Motorcycle Convention of the National Federation of Motorcycle Clubs of the Philippines, the NRA brings the MOTOKHANA back to Metro Manila with five (5) more events scheduled in the city’s popular malls, including the IR Bikefest and Trade Show.
New and exciting things are also being introduced for MOTOKHANA 2010, with added thrills, more challenges, and bigger cash prizes!
An Expert Class is added this year, with two (2) categories of Solo-SCOOTER / UNDERBONE / MOTORCYCLE and TEAM (Two (2) riders of One (1) Novice and One (1) Expert).
Expert Class entry fee is Php 1,000 per category.
Cash Prizes await the top three (3) finishers per Expert category with respective cash prizes of Php 5,000, Php 3,000 and Php 2,000.
The Novice Class continues with its four (4) categories of Solo-SCOOTER, Solo-UNDERBONE, Solo-MOTORCYCLE, and TEAM (Two (2) Novice riders).
Novice Class entry fee is Php 500 per category.
The top six (6) finishers per Novice category get to bring home Php 2,500, Php 2,000, Php 1,500, Php 700, Php 500, and Php 300 respectively.
Please note that to be able to join the TEAM Events, participants must first register for any of the SOLO Categories in their respective classes.
A discount, however, will be given to participants who buy a 1-litre bottle of Castrol Activ Premium within four (4) weeks of a scheduled 2010 MOTOKHANA event. Just show an official receipt or proof of purchase and Php 200 will be taken off their regular entry fee!
To be eligible for competition, cash prizes, and other giveaways, participants must pay the corresponding entry fee, register for their desired class and category(ies), show a riding license with Restriction 1, and they’re good to go!
Competitors must also have a registered motorcycle or scooter, and minimum gear of a DOT-approved helmet, long-sleeved shirt/jersey/jacket, sturdy long pants, full-fingered gloves, and covered riding shoes to join.
Anyone and everyone, however, can try-out the MOTOKHANA track for free, provided they have the minimum riding gear, show a license to ride, and sign a waiver form before being allowed entry into the course. Motorcycles will be provided by the NRA at the event site for those who wish to experience maneuvering through the different lay-outs of the MOTOKHANA.
Noise-level testing will also be done by the NRA on participants’ machines as the organizer’s way of helping the environment. To pass inspection, scooters and motorcycles must have a maximum level of 92 decibels.
So what are you guys (and gals) waiting for?
Ihanda na ang motorsiklo, lisensiya at gear! Mag-MOTOKHANA ka na!
More of MOTOKHANA will be coming your way this 2010 at SM City Southmall-Las Pinas, Super8-Ortigas, and SM-City Fairview!
