What happens when someone offers you the chance to trying car racing?
You'll think twice about saying yes, right?
But not Arci Muñoz.
“On the spot, pinaaral ako ng car racing,” she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in a recent interview at the Fat Cat Studio on Tomas Morato Avenue.
Back in May 2016, she had her first run behind the wheel at the second leg of the Toyota Vios Cup 2016 in Filinvest, Alabang.
Along with the regular celebrity car racers (L-R) Joyce Pring, Sam YG, Phoemela Baranda, Fabio Ide, and fellow newbie Jericho Rosales, Arci made her debut on the racing tracks.
She enjoyed it immensely, exclaiming, “Iba siya!”
Arci resumed, “Ang sarap kasi adrenaline rush, lalo na sa mga mahilig sa extreme motor sports.
“Hindi mo ‘yan magagawa sa highway, mas lalo na sa EDSA.
“Do’n ang bilis mo! Siguro kaya mag-180!”
While the rush thrilled Arci, she has no plans of making it a career alternative to acting anytime soon.
“Ine-enjoy ko pa lang siya. Hindi ko pa siya ginagawang career. Basta enjoy ko lang.”
It’s an exhilarating stress buster for the busy star.
Her advice to women who want to give car racing a shot: “Huwag ka mag-hesitate, huwag mong hayaan na may magsabi sa ’yo o may pumigil sa ’yo na gawin ang isang bagay.
“Maiksi lang ang buhay, kaya try lang nang try. Basta hindi masama.
“Motorsports is really safe. Safe talaga siya.
“Sarap ng feeling.”
