The 2017 Caltex Havoline Philippine Autocross Championship Series (PACS) held its  3rd Luzon Round last April 30, 2017 at The Megatent in Libis Quezon City.

PACS is back in the metropolis after doing two rounds at the Meycauayan Sports Complex in Bulacan. With the 3rd round held in Quezon City, another jam-packed round unfolded as PACS catered to 130 entries and with almost a hundred drivers. Racers from the north, east, and south gathered and faced a combination of high speed and technical track laid out for the said round.

Bulacan’s finest and Team AF’s ace driver Jevoy Moreno gave everyone a show as he ruled the 3rd Luzon Round. Showing the crowd that FWD cars can maneuver the the U-turns like or more likely better than the RWD cars, Moreno and his FWD Honda Civic clocked in his best time of 36.18 secs, just  .038 secs quicker than Paolo Santos and his RWD Toyota Starlet.

Caltex Philippines provided the spectators with some fun and games on the side for the young ones, while their dads and some moms were out racing. With the the new look of Caltex Havoline Pro DS fully synthetic oil and its new formulation and better performance, PACS expects their participants to have a new edge in competing and excelling in their future races. Not only protecting their engines but giving them a winning advantage for the 2017 season.

Winners in the Ladies class.
