Many will tell you that the reason Porsche makes the best sports cars in the world is because you can use it every day. I disagree, but not because what they’re saying is wrong.

Mazda Philippines invited me to their Miata Cup at Clark International Speedway. As if seeing some sports cars beat each other around the track wasn't enough, they threw in a white MX-5 for me to drive to the event. Fantastic!
We set off to the North to attend the Vios Cup at the Clark International Speedway and headed even further to Subic, where we took my nieces to the El Kabayo Stables and eventually capped the night off in Lighthouse Marina. It was one of those days I wish lasted a little bit longer.
One Sunday, I had to hop out of bed after realizing that I had the keys to an STI. It's the kind of the car that begs to be driven and the temptation was too strong to ignore. I decided to take my grandmother out for lunch and then went off for a drive with one of my best buddies.
