To drive home the message that motorcycle racing should be done on the track and not on the streets, Angkas is entering motorsports, sponsoring standout Filipino riders TJ Alberto, Troy Alberto, and EJ Sobretodo, who will represent Filipinos in international motorcycle racing competitions.
Angkas remains committed to its motorcycle riding safety advocacy, ensuring that all Angkas riders are thoroughly trained in safety and riding skills.
“Right now, we are sponsoring TJ, Troy, and EJ. Coincidentally, EJ’s father is a hardworking Angkas rider-partner,” said George Royeca, CEO of the app-hailing motorcycle taxi. “Angkas will be providing financial support to sustain the needs of these three top-caliber riders in global racing competitions.”
According to Royeca, Angkas will also be initiating a training program for potential racing champions to be undertaken in partnership with Ducati Philippines within the year. It will be open to all potential champions, including Angkas riders, he added.
Angkas has been known to be a leading advocate of motorcycle safety, as the company goes through great measures to ensure that Angkas riders are trained thoroughly in safety as well as riding skills.
The entry of Angkas into the motorsports scene was an offshoot of the company’s excellent road safety record and high customer satisfaction rating. Royeca emphasized that this undertaking is aimed at hopefully convincing speed-hungry riders to race on the tracks, not on the streets.
