EUROBRANDS Distributor Inc. (EDI), the distributor of Peugeot in the Philippiners, announced that the Peugeot team had prominently figured at the recent Auto Rally Corporate Challenge (ARCC), an annual motor sport activity that promotes road safety. The first leg of the event was held in March 2013 while the second was recently held in Subic, and was participated in by 15 car manufacturers that fielded 50 vehicles.
Despite participating in only its first ARCC, EDI said that Team Peugeot garnered the third overall spot on the strength of its performance in both legs. EDI added that its Team 29, aboard a Peugeot 3008, was given a special award for finishing the rally’s first stage at the exact prescribed time.
“Having figured prominently in the ARCC on our first try is something that we at EDI can be truly proud of,” said EDI Marketing and Communications Director Dong Magsajo. “We thank all of our teammates, especially Mike Potenciano, Lindy Pelicer and Eggay Quesada, who achieved the very difficult task of running a perfect stage and for helping us achieve this goal and, in turn, helping us promote road safety.”
EDI said that during the first leg of the ARCC, the team composed of Quesada, Magsajo and Tina Mendiola also ran a perfect stage. Team 29’s repeat of the feat solidified Team Peugeot’s standing and guaranteed the third overall spot in the ARCC, the company said.
