Hernel Castillo registered his third straight win in the third round of the 2016 Touge Battle held at the Clark Speedway on Sunday.

Coming in second was Angelo Elinon and Aurick Go. In the Economy class, Chris Cadiz took first place with Venet Felisco and Gilbert Orpilla coming in at second and third.
Other winners of the day were Leonard Cristobal in the Regular and Newbie classes, Jam Jimenez in the Premium class, Mikko Briones in Race 2 and JC Baguisa in Race 1.
Baguisa was crowned the Touge King in the third round for posting the fastest time of the day at 1:49.36.
Touge Battle is like a cat-and-mouse chase type of racing where two cars compete with each other with the winner advancing to the next rounds via knockout system. Two cars take off from the starting line four seconds apart and negotiate a twisty track. The first car that takes off wins the race if it reaches the finish line more than four seconds ahead of the other car. For the second car to win, it must cross the finish line less than four seconds after the first car.
