Another major event of Globe has ended with flying colors! Globe Slipstream 2.0, after a year from the pilot, successsful ended the event with zero casualties and amazed the crowd again as Marlon Stockinger rushed and roared the Lotus Formula 1 engine, and screeched the Michelin tires once again.
Before the parade, Marlon walked down the road and waved to his fans and gave away his signature shirt Globe Lotus F1 Junior, as some small tokens before he took of with the Globe Slipstream official Jeepney with the quote saying, “basta driver, sweet lover” on the sides of the vehicle. Senior officials from globe and some lucky chosen media rode with him.
Noticeable this time, Marlon changed his image from a young looking lad, to a musky look with his beard and moustache. But nonetheless, he still thanks his kababayans for continuously supporting him in every race that he joins internationally. Here’s a closer look of the Lotus Formula 1 turbo-charged lightweight sports car that he drives. It’s the same ride he uses in the race he joins.
After Marlon suited up to ride for the first time, he had a small presscon and the engineers made us listen to how powerful this engine would be when on the roads of BGC.
After the parade, all the super cars and super bikes showed off by teams.
On Marlon’s first run, he already did a donut! I wasn’t ready because following the sked, he should have done it in the 2nd run. But apparently, he got excited and gave away this one for free. I was also not at the vantage point. But luckily, the Fujifilm X-T1 was able to capture the moment as he speeds up from that spin!
After the first wave, he goes off the Lotus and was greeted by the media.
After every run, he made sure there would be some fans that he can spend time with taking selfies. He even entered the media tent and riders and people from the press, photographers and bloggers were able to take selfie with the Prince of Speed.
He gave media their own rounds to conduct interviews, and Marlon has a special place in his heart for little kids. He signed autographs and took pictures with the kids.
Congratulations Globe Telecom, another major event well accomplished!
