8AM 10th October 2015, Asiatown I.T. Park Cebu City – Tour de Cebu started its 1,000 kilometres historic rally across the Visayas. Vice Governor Agnes Magpale with Ms. Cebu 2015 Wynonah Buot led the ceremonial flag off, sending the first car off and hinting the other 24 vintage car owners to commence the touristic rally.
Actor and racer Matteo Guidicelli was the last one to leave the flag off ground. The three- time Philippine Karter of the Year winner, who also joined the first Tour de Cebu last 5 December 2014, drove in his yellow two-seater convertible vintage 1955 Porsche 550 Spyder.
This year’s Tour de Cebu will cover both Cebu and the Negros Island Region, making stops in Bacolod and Dumaguete cities. An assemblage at Rizal Blvd. Dumaguete will happen later at 5PM and in Bayawan Kabangkalan on October 4. The group would also make a layover at Bacolod’s New Government Center at 3PM on Oct. 4. 8AM October 5, a Provincial Capitol Flag off will take place before the team heads to San Carlos City. The group is expected to wrap up the historic rally 7PM of October 5 at Chateau de Busay.
