Travel Tuesday: F1 in Singapore

Howdy! How Gee! Tenenen ten ten tenenen ten. 🙂 I’m still on a high from this whirlwind weekend in Singapore. The actual circuit was right outside my hotel, I had to wear ear plugs all weekend long because the noise of the revved up engines was so loud! It was the good kind of noise of course!! I was sooooo lucky to be able to catch the Formula One Night Race in Marina Bay..definitely a “pinch me because I think I’m dreaming” moment. Along with my fellow SVP Champs, I flew to Singapore to support Team Ferrari/Shell at the race. Not only were we given full access to the ultra-exclusive F1 Paddock Club and Green Room, we were also given a chance to meet all the scientists, engineers, and chemists who work at the Shell Track Lab! Plus we got to see Rick Astley LIVE too..yes, that was a super bonus! Hahaha!:) I’ll be sharing more exciting photos and details soon.In the meantime, here are some snapshots from this mind-blowing weekend!

With fellow SVP Champ and Atenean, Jiggy Cruz! Team Red for Ferrari, Team Blue for the Eagles! We also met young test driver, J.Bianchi, who works closely with Team Ferrari’s Alonso and Massa. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing more of Bianchi in the coming years!

Shell has been working alongside with Ferrari for over 60 years to produce and develop racing fuels and lubricants that help optimise engine performance and efficiency. Shell and Scuderia Ferrari have won over 150 Formula One races together! In fact every Ferrari leaves the production line at Ferrari’s Maranello factory filled with Shell V Power Unleaded road fuel! And FIA regulations stipulate that Formula One race fuels must be composed of compounds normally found in road fuels meaning that the Shell V Power race fuel and the Shell V Power road fuel (which you can easily gas up with at your local gas station) are very similar!! Amazing!!! So even if you don’t drive a Ferrari, and own just a regular sedan like can still have the same optimum results! Check out this cool video which chronicles their 60 year marriage 🙂 Sobrang astig ‘tong on it now!!!

Many thanks to the Shell Family for making this little girl’s dream a reality!!! This was my very first F1 race and I’ll remember this experience forever. I know it sounds overly dramatic, but for a newbie like me..talagang kinilig ako!!! I’m so proud to be a part of the SVP Network of Champions, this year has been beyond awesome! We went to London last March, Singapore this month, and we’ll be heading to Ferrari World in November! I just feel so blessed to be a part of this amazing campaign. I really can’t wait to see what Shell has in store for us next year. 🙂 I’m ready for more surprises from the V power team!

  1. Shell is lucky to have such dedicated people like you, Patty, and Jinno Rufino! I saw the dedication you have as ambassadors of the Shell Brand and of what they do. It is great for you to have seen F1 up close and personal. It was nice seeing you, I hope to see you in Manila soon.
