Round 2 of the 2018 Vios Cup saw the iconic motorsports event moving to a 1.74km street circuit at Filinvest Alabang last July 28-29, with more than 50 competition vehicles all running on Petron XCS. The one-make race is now running on its fifth season, and is seen as an important springboard for novice drivers pursuing a career in motorsports. Over the past five years, the Toyota Vios Cup has also attracted star power, with celebrity racers competing in their own category.
As the official fuel for the 2018 season, Petron XCS garnered praise from the competitors who appreciate the improvements in performance that it delivers. For instance, Troy Montero noted, “I trust it with my race car and it’s such a relief that I don’t have to worry about anything when I’m running around the track going out fast. I’m just thankful that they’re here and have partnered with the Vios Cup. I have zero complaints; everything is really great and so proud and honored to be with Petron.” Montero finished 3rd and 1st, respectively in the two races held for Round 2 of the 2018 Vios Cup.
Meanwhile, his teammate and wife Aubrey Miles clarified, “I choose Petron XCS because I use it for my everyday lifestyle. I use it for my two cars and my race car as well. And those PVCs (Petron Value Cards) are always ready inside my cars.”
Another keen competitor, Fabio Ide, who took 2nd place finishes in both Race 1 and 2 observed, “Petron XCS helps my engine go faster, cleaner and better. Also for the mileage, I know I can use my car for a longer period of time. It’s the best choice.”
