It’s a very successful season for Red Diwa! The Growl-Thule driver (and current Giti-Formula V1 Challenge AM Class champion) managed to reel in Eggy Ong’s six-point lead over him in the final round of the Vios Circuit Championship last November 9 at Clark International Speedway.
Diwa fought hard for third in the opening Race 7, and claimed second during Race 9–doing just enough to overtake Ong as the Toyota San Fernando driver grabbed his only podium finish–a third place result–during the same race. Red showed great composure as he allowed a rampaging John Dizon a clean path to first in Race 9 rather than risk not finishing by defending hard during a race that already saw a multiple car collision early on–a lesson he learned from his previous campaign in the one-make series.
“Last year I won 4 out of 9 races–but I still lost the championship because I was not consistent. Winning is just one race and not the same as winning the whole series yet. So this season what I did is work on my consistency. Never mind if I don’t win always–I’ve only won once–but I’m still challenging for the championship.”
His new strategy paid off as he grabbed the Sporting Class championship with his very last result of the season! Congratulations Red Diwa and Growl-Thule Racing Team!
