MANILA: Fourteen-year old racing phenomenon Iñigo Anton and actor Troy Montero made dramatic victories in the inaugural Toyota Vios Racing Festival’s Autocross Challenge recently held at SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City.

Anton of Mark Young Racing-Yokohama proved his mettle in the Car Club Class against 40 competitors as he qualified second fastest during the opening day’s first round knockout competition. The feat earned him a place in the finals the next day.

Anton consistently set the fastest times during the knockout stage to make it to the final four, said a report of the race from The Manila Times. He then battled it out with autocross veteran Michael Scott Carbonel in the finals, with the latter drawing first blood with the best time of 1:12.23 (minutes) in their class.

Anton had to dig deep but tried not to be pressured by the crowd. In his final run, he set a time of 1:11.13 that propelled him to first place in the Car Club division. Carbonel finished second and Daryl Brady, who also drove well with 1:12.47, third.

“It was really tough,” Anton was quoted in the Manila Times report as saying. “It was my first time to drive the Vios race car and I had to adjust to it with only two runs. Luckily, I set the fastest time when it mattered most.”

In the Celebrity Class meantime, Montero shocked a lot of racers as he handled the new Toyota Vios Cup race car superbly and posted the best overall time of 1:10.63 in his last run of the day. Montero took up autocross only that weekend and registered quick times in qualifying and the elimination rounds. He eventually ruled the Celebrity Class, said the Times report.
