    Marking the lead-up to the aforementioned motorsport event, a ceremonial flag-off event was conducted over the weekend at Estancia Mall in Capitol Commons, Pasig City. The ceremony was presided by AAP President Augustus Ferreria, Motorsport Committee Chairman Armando Eduque, alongside PHRX Directors Olson Camacho and Ronaldo Trinidad.

    Earlier, organizers of the event had the Jun Espino Memorial Rallycross. Held last April 6 at the Cultural Center of the Philippines Open Grounds, the event coincided with the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS) 2024.

    Camacho said that the event paid tribute to the late Jun Espino, who is one of the major movers in reinvigorating the discipline locally. A legendary rally navigator during the 1970s- 1980s, Espino excelled in local and international competitions.
