It's gonna be on May 4 and May 5
Quirino Grandstand and Mall of Asia.

Marlon Stockinger will be driving a Lotus F1 car around while there's gonna be an 'F1 village' featuring car displays and demos.

Rumor around the grapevine says there's gonna be a surprise F1 driver appearance too!

I heard that that "surprise" driver is Lotus F1 reserve driver, Davide Valsecchi. I could be wrong though. :P  (I also wish it was Kimi instead.)

i don't think kimi would bother coming here. he'd rather be racing snowmobiles, playing hockey, or hanging out with the dudesons than go to a hot tropical country with lots of sweaty screaming fans.

Brent

And I guess with a week away from the next race, last thing one the two main drivers would want to do is go to a hot country which they dread


Paul

here's a fun fact for pinoy F1 fans. the lotus team's roots is the toleman team in the early 80's. it's the first team that ayrton senna drove for and famous for almost winning the monaco gp had the race not been stopped for very bad weather. team owner is ted toleman, who is now residing in the philippines. i got to meet him a couple of years ago.
