PLDT launched their 2010 speed circuit tour in Eastwood City, to promote their myDSL ISP. The event pulled in a big crowd on it’s first weekend, at the beginning of March. The launch included additional entertainment such as live music and dancers.
Although the tour was meant to move on to different areas, for some reason the drifting has continued every weekend since; minus the additional entertainment. It was bad enough that PLDT expanded their tour time in Eastwood but now it’s transformed into the Lateral Drift Championships. The crowd has steadily declined and aside from a handful of spectators, the only people who attend the event are the drift car drivers.
The only benefit of holding the event in Eastwood is the potential of pulling in large crowds, however that’s clearly not happening. So why not move it a non-residential area?
I for one am fed up with being woken up at 8am every Saturday and Sunday by the noise of car wheels screeching. The question is, why are they still here? The tour was meant to move on and the event no longer pulls in spectators. If the boys want to play with their toys, why don’t they do it somewhere else?
