Hagedorn all out to ensure success of 2007 Motocross Masters of Asia PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 23 March 2007

Being one of the highlights of the Puerto Princesa City Foundation Day, Mayor Edward S. Hagedorn vowed to ensure that the 2007 Puerto Princesa City Motocross Masters of Asia FIM-UAM Asian Motocross Championships set March 4 will be another blockbuster motorsports event.

Mayor Hagedorn, together with City Administrator Atty. Agustin Rocamora, are meticulously supervising the preparations not only at the sprawling FIM-compliant permanent motocross racetrack adjacent to the Puerto Princesa City Hall but also other arrangements that will showcase Puerto Princesa’s brand of hospitality to the visiting riders and other tourists.

The trappings and pageantry of the Foundation Day’s fiesta atmosphere will showcase Puerto Princesa’s tradition and culture, and its people’s flair for color and fanfare in this event supported by City of Puerto Princesa,  Aboitiz 2GO, Oakley and the Philippine Sports Commission,. 

As the past three staging of the event proved Puerto Princesa’s generally peaceful ambience, the foreign delegates will enjoy the treat of exquisite cultural shows performed by its homegrown talents and delectable native food and delicacies that will catapult Puerto Princesa Foundation Day into a world-renown tourist-drawing cultural event much like Cebu’s Sinulog, Aklan’s Ati-Atihan and Iloilo’s Dinagyang Festivals.

“That’s basically the reason why we’re pushing the vision of making Puerto Princesa as the Sports Capital of the Philippines.  Just imagine the influx of tourist coming in to enjoy the peaceful ambience, the beauty and splendor of our nature frontiers and scenic spots and get the rare chance to witness the biggest motorsports spectacle featuring champion riders from the Asia-Pacific region.  Only Puerto Princesa City can do that and we are very proud of it,” said Hagedorn.

Like in the past three years, the delegates will be treated to a showcase of Puerto Princesa’s flora and fauna, nature and historical sights like the Crocodile Farm, the Honda Bay, Ulugan Bay, El Nido, the geologic limestone formations at the Underground River, the Palawan Museum, the historic Immaculate Conception Cathedral, the Lions Cave, the Cawili Cave and a tour of Puerto Princesa’s aborigines at the Batak Village, which will also be showcased to over 500 million viewers worldwide by UK Star and ESPN Sports TV.

The event is also serves as the kickoff of the FIM-UAM Asian Motocross Championship Series which will tour the Asia-Pacific region with Xtreme Worx Philippines as asian regional promoter of event.  The second leg of the series will be hosted by Guam in June 10. 

 So far 10 countries, aside from host Philippines, have confirmed their participation in the event, namely: Dubai, Mongolia, Thailand, New Zealand, Hongkong, Australia, Guam, Japan, India and China.

Up for grabs in the centerpiece Asian Open 125cc class & the Junior Asian 85cc Class is the prestigious Mayor Edward S. Hagedorn Cup -- a sterling silver trophy coming from the city’s chief executive and his constituents.
