“The Mile” is a one-day celebration of speed which was held at Subic Bay International Airport, organized by the TrackHos car club. At the same time, it was also a charitable event, where all proceeds went to the Philippine Red Cross to help the victims of the recent Typhoon Sendong.
Though this was meant to be an event for all types of “fast and high-horsepower cars”, from tuner cars to performance cars to high-end exotics, since the bulk of the Civic/Subaru/Evo crowd was caught up in the Manila Auto Salon, which happened on the same weekend, it was only the high-end cars that were able to make it, plus maybe a handful of heavily-modified Honda Civics.
So it turned out that “The Mile” was so far the most epic gathering of some of the country’s most ultra-high-end exotic cars to date. From Audi R8s to Ford GTs to a plethora of Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Porsches, Nissan GTRs, and more, you’d start to wonder why the Philippines is called a third-world country!
And what better place to unleash all that pent-up horsepower, than for the club to find the longset, straightest, flattest road around? The answer – a runway. Specifically, Subic Bay International Airport. No wonder even the top motoring shows in the world such as BBC Top Gear use runways for testing the most powerful cars. You can go flat-out and be one with your machine without having to risk public safety! How awesome is that?
So, without further ado, sit back, relax, and check out the TrackHos “The Mile” video by 88storey Films and Central Digital Lab. Make sure you put it on full HD, full screen, and turn up the volume. Coz you’ll be in for an exciting and enjoyable ride…
