Last September 28, 2019, East Time! Mini 4WD Race Tournament successfully concluded their event with more than 300 attendees coming from all over the Philippines exceeding their expected number of participants- one of the biggest gathering of Tamiya enthusiasts in the country. 

“We set a pre-registration for this event so we can estimate how many attendees we’ll be expecting but it came as a surprise that with pre-registrants alone, we already hit our target.” Jonathan Cruz, Project Head for the East Time! Mini 4WD Race Tournament happily shared.

Evidently, the Tamiya tournaments at present are very male dominated, when asked about plans on catering to a younger audience, Mr. Cruz revealed that their next event will be dedicated to kids with an objective of making Tamiya racing a family bonding activity. “With our dream of taking these Tamiya tournaments nationwide, we hope to also influence people of all age and gender. As Tamiya continues to introduce new products and technology, it will surely get everyone more interested to the craft.” Cruz said.

The entire Eton Centris Complex was in high-speed mode as racers spent almost 24 hours tinkering and modifying their race cars in the hopes of bagging the P120,000 cash price and the very sought after Tuffcase. 

Out of the 300+ competitors and after an all-nighter race, here are the declared winners per category.
