Panglao Island, October 20, 2017 – Never repeated a location before, Tour de Cebu returns to Bohol as their destination for the rare 1000-kilometer touristic rally across the Visayas. Last year, 33 vintage car enthusiasts were impressed by the genuine warm welcome of the Boholanos as they rally around Bohol.
Now on its 4th leg of Tour de Cebu and second year in Bohol, a total of 47 vintage beauties have touched down at the port of Tubigon early this morning. With their arrival came rough seas, strong winds, and heavy rain to start off the day and the rally still continues!
This year’s participants are a diverse bunch with newcomers from the United States, Spain, and Singapore. Last year’s favorites such as the Morgan 3-wheeler and 550 Spyder are resting this year but other showstoppers such as the 1967 Michel Lotus 7 and Mustang Fastback joined this year’s Tour.
Media celebrity Dominic Ochoa joins this year in his 1978 Ford Escort MK2and BE Resorts President’s son, Giles Benedicto, in the Mustang Fastback. Last year’s champion, Martin Aguilar, is back on the road to defend his title.
Soaked in the day’s rain and thrill of the race, participants were greeted with a warm welcome at BE Grand Resort with cocktails to relax and mingle before calling it a night for the next day’s rally.
With two more days of opportunity to witness them on the road, BE Grand Resort in Panglao is also the official hotel of these beauties where guests can have a first-hand look of the cars when they are off the road.
BE Resorts Group of Hotels is owned and managed by Cebu-based property developer Enrison Land, Inc. (ELI), a family-owned corporation that shares the values of Filipino excellence for global recognition. BE Resorts currently operates two hotels, namely BE Resort, Mactan and BE Grand Resort, Bohol.
