One of Formula V1’s main goal’s is to develop Filipino driving talent for international competition–and that competition also makes its way to the local grid! Joining us for the final round of the 2019 Giti-Formula V1 Challenge is Rich Pham from Vietnam!
The 53-year old racer is the chairman of Pocari Sweat in Vietnam and has ample race experience in Formula Ford, Formula Renault, and touring cars. Currently affiliated with BlackArts Racing Team, he has a simple reason for joining the top tier of Philippine motorsports ladder: “I heard about these incredible cars and want to try them and race in the Philippines. I just want to have fun!”
We can all agree that’s why we love racing! In fact, he loves it so much that he owns three race cars, “A 1988 Honda Civic I race in the Asia Classics in Sepang, a Caterham with a supercharged R1 engine, and a SLC with a 650hp LS7 engine. For personal use in vietnam I have a 2005 Landcruiser.”
We wish Pham good luck as he battles for a share of the double points during the final round at CIS on October 19-20!
