Fontana Leisure Parks to kick off Auto-Motorama 2015 come November

Fontana Hot Spring Leisure Parks, a play-and-relax resort located in the Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga, will soon host one of the biggest automotive shows in the country called the “Fontana Clark Auto-Motorama 2015”.

Scheduled to take place next month, the event will will be held at the Whole Convention Center of Fontana from November 13 to 15.

Carrying the theme “Drive More to Reach More”, the organizers stated that this will be more than just an auto show as it will also feature other exciting activities that will cater to the motoring and general public such as the Car Awards Group Inc.'s (CAGI) Car and Truck of the Year Awards.

CAGI, which is annually held in Manila, will now coincide with the Fontana Clark Auto-Motorama 2015 and will be culminated in the form of a formal party on November 13.

Established in 2004, CAGI is an organization of motoring journalists from the country's leading print, broadcast and online publications. Since its conception, the group has strived to find the best vehicles in the country through comprehensive testing involving quantitative and qualitative analysis of the vehicle's performance, design, safety, value and other relevant factors.

Other exciting events include Golf Invitational Cup, Formal Auto Show Pool Party, the Grand Finals of the Fontana Dance Showdown, as well as disc jockey and live entertainment.

There will also be social media challenges for the best photo, sexy models and the JSK Auto Fun Run, which will attempt to set a new world record while promoting camaraderie among car clubs to contribute to Reach Out World Wide Foundation.

The group drive will take off from the Trinoma Mall parking area in Quezon City, cruise along the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), and converge at Fontana.

“For several years now, we have always been a great advocate of Reach Out World Wide Foundation—the same beneficiary supported by the late action star Paul Walker, who starred in the immensely popular Fast and Furious movie series,” said Manuel Sequeira, Fontana Chief Executive Officer.

Together with its partners, Clark Development Corp., San Miguel Corp., PLDT Smart Telecommunications, and co-organizers San Miguel Brewery, San Miguel Purefoods, Ginebra San Miguel, Petron, Clark International Speedway, Car Awards Group Inc. and JSK Custom Paints and Autoworks, the Auto-Motorama aims to have 1,500 cars drive along the route from Manila to Clark to promote road safety.
