Other participants of the day was the Ducati Riders Club and a lot of luxury high end cars.

The fastest that Marlon was able to run in BGC was about 200 km per hour which was a thrill for him, why? Just imagine being able to run a F1 race car in the streets of the place he used to go to school in? Cool right.

When we got to meet Marlon for a short press meet – I asked him , how fast is the fastest speed that you’ve even driven – according to him somewhere around 330 km/hr. In the last competition that he ended 2nd place -his speed was about 320 km/hour -that’s fast… I guess that’s why he is called the Prince of Speed!

 

When asked, What are you thinking about when you are driving?… Marlon jokingly responds.. DON’T CRASH..DON’T CRASH.

Here’s a short video snippet of the interview

For those that want more pictures of Marlon -Here’s a couple more.

TO cap off the days celebrations a concert was held in the amphitheater of BC with Bands like Up Dharma Down, Yolanda Moon and a couple more others.

This event is also to celebrate Globe’s Milestone where it achieved its 100% 3G network coverage nationwide.

When we got to talk to Peter Bithos of Globe and asked about Slipstream 2.0 – Yes – and hopefully by then Marlon is a full fledged F1 driver.
