The first-ever Manila Grand Prix was held more than 40 years ago on July 1970 that raced on a street circuit based on roads that surrounded Luneta Park. It was heralded as the golden age of Philippine motorsports, and for the longest time, was thought to be one of the last times that an international street race of its caliber would ever grace the Philippines. But on June 2013, we're finally back on the global racing scene as the nation's capital hosts the very first GT3 Race Manila.
2010 Asia GT3 Champion Dilantha Malagamuwa and Price of Malaysia Khairul Zaim even flew to Manila just to make the announcement official. They were joined by none-other-than Manila City Mayor Alfredo Lim and Executive Director for National Parks Development Committee Juliet Horfilla Villegas.
