DRQ Lady Drivers Shasha Quiñones and Karis Santos in podium wins at Palawan International Circuit.

DRQ Motorsport team lady drivers namely Senior Class racer Shasha Quiñones and Intermediate Class racer Karis Santos garnered similar 3rd-place podium wins as female entries of the DRQ team in the recent 2022 Petron Blaze 100 ROK GP Super Karting Series held at Palawan International Circuit last May 15, 2022.

Sasha who is the younger sister of the current AAP Driver of Year Miguel Quiñones placed 3rd in the recent tourney behind his brother Migs who placed 1st. It must be remembered that the Sibling Quiñones were the 2021 Philippines representatives in the ROK GP Finals where Migs competed in the Seniors and Sasha in the Juniors category.

Migs and Shasha are now fierce competitors on track when Shasha was formally elevated this year to compete in the Seniors Class.

On the other hand, Karis Alexandrea Santos is the only girl racer competing in the Intermediate Class that is dominated by male racers. For racer#47 Karis, it is her first time landing in the top 3 finish. There was a stretch in the Finals when Karis was able to overtake the boys even if she started only 4th in the grid. Eventually, at the race finish, DRQ teammates Deniel Virtucio and Miguel Abaño finished 1st and 2nd place respectively.

Overall, the recent Palawan race was dominated by the DRQ racing team as championship titles for Senior, Junior, and Intermediate classes were won by the team including most of the runner-up finishes. The next race is slated for June at Clark International Speedway resuming the 2nd Round of the Rotax Max Challenge Philippines Series.
