HEART OF A CHAMPION
Witnessing actor and performer Vitto Marquez’s focus and great performance during Phoenix PULSE Young Driver’s Program Celebrity Showdown this year made him a champion in his own right.
His experience as a member of the Valorant team and Counter Strike Global Offensive Pro Team gave him an edge in the competition, he showed what toughness is all about.
The world of virtual racing is new to him but it didn’t stop Vitto to get the much-coveted championship title.
Fast-forward to this day, he now shows his strength and potential at Phoenix PULSE Formula V1 Virtual Cup as part of the Phoenix PULSE Racing Team.
Sharing his FV1 Virtual Cup Round 1 experience, Vitto said that the most challenging part was the first corner during Race 1, aside from the track itself.
“Usually pag start ng race kasi talagang bugbugan sa first corner so that’s the most challenging, as in. It’s either pag nakalagpas ka don okay na okay, you can continue pero pag nasira kotse mo, as in wala na pag-asa move on ka nalang ganon.” Vitto shared.
But despite these challenges, Vitto considers his Round 1 experience a memorable and adrenaline-filled battle.
“First time ko na mag-competitive na tournament sa racing kaya mejo baguhan pa ako but I got the hang of it, nakakalaban naman ako .”
He also cited that his experience in Phoenix PULSE Young Drivers Program: Celebrity Showdown is a big help for his FV1 Virtual Cup stint.
“Dun ko first time nagamit yung virtual racing, yung talagang may wheel, kung ano yung feeling, yung kahit hindi ka naman pro, andun yung feeling na talagang lumalaban kami.”
Vitto also shared a lot of things he learned in his first foray into the world of virtual racing through Phoenix PULSE Formula V1 Virtual Cup.
“It’s not all about speed, It’s about being smart also. Kaya hindi ibig sabihin na mas mabilis ka, una ka na. Kaya pagdating ng laban talaga , iba ang qualifying iba pa ang race kaya kailangan matalino ka, kailangan hindi ma-damage kotse mo. Kailangan isipin mo kung ano ang weakness ng kalaban , mahirap talaga siya, kailangan may presence of mind ka.”
With his passion to learn and adrenaline-filled spirit, Vitto Marquez sure knows how to show that he is indeed a CHAMPION.
