While they are not exactly Formula 1 class circuits there are two fun racing tracks near Manila.

Subic International Raceway:

and South of Manila, Batangas Racing Circuit.

Although I doubt if it will meet up to the Sepang track in KL which I visited frequently I do plan on visiting Batangas circuit this year.

Anyone else visited either of these? Not long now the the 2008 F1 session starts - vroom vroom  8)

Long story, but I\'ve actually driven the track in Batangas. It\'s um...well...interesting.  :o Almost ran over a cat. Definitely not a world-class piece of road by any means, but since one can hardly hurt himself in a Honda on a track that barely has enough room anywhere on it to break 150 kph, it\'s a lot of fun. Kind of like a go cart track on uppers. There\'s a cart track in Cavite, too, but I haven\'t been there.
That\'s not chicken.

My home town in the UK is very close to Oulton Park circuit in Cheshire. Started to go there as a kid with my Dad. The best fun ever was with club level races - mini\'s, Escorts etc race prepared by enthusiastic amateurs. Seen all the greats there too, Ronnie Peterson & Emmerson Fittipaldi in the JPS Lotus\', Sterling Moss, Jack Brabham, Derek Warwick etc but always entertaining was the amateurs. Good days may be back by going to see the same thing at Batangas.  8)
