The 2015 Philippine Masters were held this past weekend at Circulo Vende Race Track, just outside of Manila, Philippines in Quezon City. In conjunction with QRCCCC and DogBone Hobbies, Team Associated’s Kyle McBride made the journey from Australia to compete for the 1:8 Buggy title along with racers from surrounding countries.
From the first tank on the track, McBride and his RC8 prototype were setting the pace. As qualifying got underway, McBride was the fastest of them all and secured the pole position for the main event.
In true McBride fashion, the young Australian drove a clean race that saw him take home the 2015 Philippine Masters title in the 60-minute final. Special thanks to DogBone Hobbies for the hospitality and taking care of Team McBride!
