Last June, Mototesto, in cooperation with Petron Corporation and official battery partner Motolite Philippines, gave us a preview of what will be the biggest overlanding event of the year. On October 17 to 22 (originally October 12 to 16), thirty teams will be traversing the uncharted terrain of General Nakar, Quezon for the 2022 Petron Philippine Overland Expedition.
Registration for the competition is EXTENDED until October 15 (from the original September 30 deadline) at the PHOX2022 website. This extension was necessary due to the devastating effect of Typhoon Karding in Quezon province, and Mototesto has been tapped by principal event organizer Sec. Mar A. Roxas to conduct relief operations in the province from October 7-9.
As this event comes closer, the 2022 Petron Overland Expedition team is making this experience extremely remarkable for competing teams and campers alike.
If this extension in registration has convinced you to field your own last-minute team, know that mud-terrain tires and recovery equipment such as winch and snorkel are a must to be able to enter the event. For P25,000 registration fee per vehicle, each rig will get to experience a challenge like no other while loaded with P5,000 worth of Petron fuel, plus P3,000 worth of exclusive event giveaways. Teams that availed of the Early Bird Promo were also able to get Motolite’s newest product, the Excel EFB, a battery designed for endurance and best performance under the most grueling conditions. Aside from all these exciting freebies, the winning team is set to take home P500,000 in cash, plus huge bragging rights, of course!
Meanwhile, at the Overland Expo, campers can likewise register until October 15 (from the original October 7 deadline). For only P7,500/rig regardless of number of occupants, the package includes camping fee, event tokens, plus a 70% off voucher on a Motolite Excel EFB battery. Campers will begin their Overland Expo on October 21, starting from General Nakar Municipal Hall before they set up at the campsite for three days and two nights of off-grid, nature-loving adventure.
On top of these package inclusions, CST Tires is offering an exclusive Buy 3, Take 1 Promo to all registered competitors and campers. CST Tires is widely known for its high-performance bike tires, however, their partnership with the biggest overlanding event of the year is a strong message that they mean serious business when it comes to equipping 4-wheel vehicles in the most challenging trails and journeys.
In preparation for this overlanding experience, competitors, campers, and interested participants gathered last September 11 for the official PHOX2022 briefing at The Clubhouse at Third Greenmeadows. They were given an overview of what to expect and everything that they need to know before they embark in this lifestyle and adventure like no other.
