Valdez, 19 years old, who is also into karting, slalom, gymkhana, and autocross racing
In an effort to revive local motorsports events despite the pandemic, JAC Motors Phils. joined the PACS race to have a Sports Demo of its newly-launched 2021 JAC S2 Mini-SUV Crossover to display the car’s endurance capability, agility, power, and easy maneuverability despite having an all-stock small fuel-efficient engine of only 1500cc. Even the monsoon rains did not diminish the performance of the S2 car in the rainy-wet damped autocross track and with the good driving performances made by teammates Miguel and Jerald, the S2 executed good lap time results when ranged against a fully-equipped BMW and Honda racecars.
