Pampanga. BMW Motorrad Racing Team professional rider Marvin Mangulabnan once again emerged as the Overall and Expert Class Champion of the Philippine Superbike Championship (PSBK), after the final leg at the Clark International Speedway — marking a Grand Slam victory for the rider.
The championship race consisted of a qualifying round and two succeeding races that determined the net points for the season title. Mangulabnan secured the pole position in the qualifying bout to set a leading spot on the grid for the following heats.
Mangulabnan determinedly kept a neck and neck battle with his contenders to hold the second place. With the highest points accumulated throughout the final leg, Mangulabnan claimed his third consecutive championship in the prestigious motorcycle racing event.
For four successful seasons, Mangulabnan has been riding a BMW S1000RR with very minimal upgrades. The consistent victory of Mangulabnan demonstrates the strengthened tandem that he and BMW Motorrad have developed in the past years.
