JM Far East, Inc., the exclusive distributor of Falken Tires in the Philippines, introduced its newest line of 200-Treadwear tires to the country, the Azenis RT615k+ and RT660. This comes as a response to the growing demand of serious car and track enthusiasts. These tires were formally launched at the Clark International Speedway (CIS) on April 2, 2022, which coincided with the track day hosted by JM Far East, Inc.

After doing hot laps around the CIS, Luis succeeded in posting the best time of 2:08.267 minutes, breaking his personal track records.
