Filipino Wins Open Category at the 2019 Tamiya Mini 4WD Asia Challenge Manila
Posted by Martin Patino June 27, 2019

Tamiya recently held the 2019 Tamiya Mini 4WD Asia Challenge Manila at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati City, Philippines. The event, held in partnership with Lil’s Hobby Center and The Brickyard, brought racers from over 10 countries to compete for a spot at the Japan Cup.

The competition, which was held from June 20 to 23, saw over 200 racers compete in the event’s Stock and Open categories. And after four days of intense preparations, three Filipinos ended up in podium positions in the Open category.

Here are the list of top placers from both the Open and Stock competitions:

Open Category

  • Champion: Melvin Bien Chavez (PH)
  • 1st Runner Up: Alvin John Linchangco (PH)
  • 2nd Runner Up: Darwin Basco (PH)
  • 3rd Runner Up: John Eleazar Fabian (PH)
  • 4th Runner Up: Huh Eunhwan (KR)

Stock Category

  • Champion: Jackraphan (TH)
  • 1st Runner Up: Ong Chee Lip (MY)
  • 2nd Runner Up: Huttaprom (TH)
  • 3rd Runner Up: Watcharapong (TH)
  • 4th Runner Up: Arie Roque (PH)

The humongous track used for the competition was flown in from Japan and consisted of a series of straightaways, sharp turns, up and downhill portions, and even sections that were tilted. The track really tested the abilities of the racers to tune their Mini 4WDs for all these challenges.
