The flag off of this year's STV Auto Rally Corporate Challenge ( ARCC ) last Saturday in Subic was done in scourging heat but the actual rally was
a lot "hotter", what with a route stretching a
distance of more than a hundred kilometers that was designed to keep each
member of the rally crew from the driver, route navigator to the time
navigator at their toes all the time lest a checkpoint is missed for an
automatic 300 demerits-a virtual "kiss goodbye" to the championship trophy.
