Together with the help of motorsports partner SDG Motorsports—HARC-PRO, Honda Philippines, Inc. has officially begun its “Road to Champion” campaign. The mission: To hone HPI’s two (2) young Filipino champions for the international stage.
Alfonsi Daquigan and Jakob Sablaya received hands-on training from Mr. Shigeki Honda, the founder of HARC-PRO himself. He was accompanied by three Japanese riders and coaches of the highest caliber: Mr. Yuki Kunii, a former rider for the Moto3 Honda Team Asia; Teppei Nagoe, a J-GP2 champion with MuSASHi RT HARC-PRO; and Haruki Noguchi, a competitor in the ASB1000 Race Category of the 2023 Asia Road Racing Championships.
The riders discovered that future racing success depends on their ability to remain focused, disciplined, and persistent. The HPI riders believe it’s critical for racers to be psychologically, physically, and emotionally prepared for the task inside the track.
