1st Tour de Cebu

Race cars zooming past each other in the track or racing bikes speeding to the finish line are something we see with regularity in Cebu. What we don’t often see or actually haven’t seen yet in Cebu are sleek vintage sports cars being showcased in a race.

A one-of-a-kind event is set to unfold as some of the country’s prominent personalities and their prized vintage cars take centerstage for the 1st Tour De Cebu: 1,000 Kilometers Historic Rally Across the Visayas scheduled on Dec. 5 to 7, 2014.

Joining the event are members of the Performance and Classics Enthusiasts (Pace) and the Manila Sports Car Club (MSCC), who will drive from Cebu City all the way to Bacolod for a three-day, two-night touristic rally.
Although the event is essentially a race, the goal is not about reaching the finish line first as participants will have to complete each stage to be completed in a pre-determined time. The car with the lowest penalty score will be declared winner.

The event is patterned after Mille Miglia in Italy, a race covering 1,000 miles from Brescia to Rome and back. The race is open to historic and post-historic sports cars made not later than Dec. 31, 1979.

About Febbe

I was born in Toledo City but moved to Lapu-Lapu City at a very young age. Grew up, attended school and now, still lives there. She loves movies and saw a little too many. She also watches a lot of crappy tv shows. For some reason, she thinks its relevant to mention that. She played damath and chess on her primary school years. She won games and was sent to other schools to compete. This has turned out to be completely and utterly useless. Now, she's writing about herself in the 3rd person. What's up with that?! LoL! Peace out!
