The expedition flag-off will take place at the LausGroup Event Centre in San Fernando, Pampanga, and participants will be traveling a 285-kilometer-long stretch that will end in General Nakar, Quezon. The teams shall garner points based on completion of quests across the trail, with 160 kilometers of asphalt road, and 120 kilometers of gravel, sand, mud, rocky paths, and river crossings. The team with the highest score at the finish line will be declared as the country’s first ever Petron Philippine Overland Expedition Champion. Celebrating with the teams at the last stop are outdoor enthusiasts and spectators at the Overland Expo. Campers will be enjoying 4-days and 3-nights of undistracted nature adventure, with like-minded individuals that share the same passion and adrenaline for the extraordinary.
Tim Tuazon, President and CEO of Mototesto, also a hardcore enthusiast, would like to impart the knowledge he has gained from years of overlanding around the Philippine Archipelago. “The main goal of creating this event is to showcase the beauty of the Philippines, and strengthen the bond with our Mototesto customers, while fostering unforgettable experiences with them”, says Tuazon. Mototesto has been part of the off-roading community since 2011, being the official distributor of Koni Suspensions, MMOV, EcoFlow, Softopper, and many more. The move to partner with Petron Philippines is a collaboration that sees a long-term relationship between the oil company and the country’s growing 4x4 community, with its world-class quality products such as Petron Turbo Diesel, Diesel Max, and Rev-X. “The Philippines has the perfect terrain and topography for overlanding, and Petron products are the perfect partners in fueling our intense passion for this lifestyle. Mototesto is honored to have them onboard in taking overlanding to the next level”, says Tuazon.
