Moon Rock WQS: Get ready to rock the Moon!

As common in the Philippines, we had a very chilled morning at Moon Rock WQS. The lack of Police on the track in the morning created a slight delay before we could start with official practice runs. Fortunately riders could wait in the shade and eat some freshly made veggies, pork, and rice in the meantime.

We evaluated the track in the morning while keeping an eye on the protection along the road as this is the first time that a World Qualifying race has been ran on this hill.
