Regional Underbone Grand Prix (RUGP) Leg 1 - Race Results

After a very long dry spell of Open Make Underbone Circuit Racing in Cebu,
RUGP was a very welcome relief as it hosted the kick-off leg in Cebu.
Cebuano racing fans certainly got what they came for and so much more. RUGP
delivered hard hitting action and it gave Cebuano racing fans in Cebu a chance
to meet and witness national level riders from Manila like Rizaldy Canare of
Replica PRO HPI and Cassey Ng of MTRT in action. There were a lot of prizes
and freebies for spectators and racers alike.

In the 100-125 Superstock Beginners and Novice categories it was a solid
performance by 2010 Superstock standout Albert Cabucos of Team CYRUS as
he bagged a double win for both categories.

In the Beginners 130cc Open and Pioneer Mighty Gasket 4AT 160 Scooter Open
it was a brilliant performance by Drag racing standout Tonglee Cabrera of
X-Racing as he bagged back to back top finish for both categories.

One of the major highlights of the day was the re-emergence of Keken Cabahug
of Honda Motor World Racing Team, after a year long hiatus the fiery and
fearless rider who dominated 2009 is now back in fighting form as he bagged
back to back top finishes for both Novice 130 Open and Novice Open 4-stroke,
both hard earned victories at crunch time against versatile veteran
Rizaldy Canare.

RUGP attracted a lot of new riders and clubs from all over Cebu and the nearby
provinces and the event in general was simply spectacular so racing fans
