Roadtrip to Clark for the Mazda Skyactiv Experiment. Zoom Zoom.

In five words: Zoom Zoom with a Brain. I'll explain that in a bit. But that's what comes to mind when I recall our recent road trip from Manila to Clark, Pampanga last February 15-16 for the Mazda SKYACTIV Experiment. We had three clear objectives during the road trip organized by Mazda Philippines and Shell for a riotous but refreshingly creative mix of car club enthusiasts and bloggers:

a) Day 1 - Drive from Mazda Pasig to BGC to Ayala to Buendia to EDSA Northbound to Timog Avenue to Sgt Esguerra to Quezon Avenue to Elliptical Road to Visayas Avenue to Congressional Avenue to EDSA to Shell Balintawak to NLEX to SCTEX to Clark in the most fuel efficient way. 

b) Day 2 - Drive from Holiday Inn Clark to Shell Clark to SCTEX to the Hacienda Luisita Exit and back at 80kph for the first run then at 100kph for the second run in the most fuel efficient way.

c) Experience driving the Mazda CX-5 AWD for 2 awesome days with my teammates Winslow Co of, Jam Ancheta of -- Go Team 3!!! -- along with our Mazda SKYACTIV Experiment marshall and former racing driver Ms. Menchie Ramirez. By the way, Ms Menchie, your racing stories were awesome!

But the Mazda SKYACTIV Experiment was a contest -- the team could drive their Mazda 6, Mazda CX-5 PRO and Mazda CX-5 AWD in the most efficient way using SKYACTIV Technology wins. So did Team 3 win?! Were we the most fuel efficient group?! No we weren't. Haha. 

But thanks to the valuable lessons we learned from the Day 1 city run from Mazda Pasig to Balintawak, thanks to a better understanding of the Mazda i-Stop feature, thanks to the teamwork we developed in two fun-filled days, we performed so much better during the Day 2 SCTEX run averaging 15.44 km/l for the 80kph leg and 100kph leg. Good job Team 3!!!

Which leads me to the part about the Zoom Zoom with a Brain...

The Mazda SKYACTIV Experiment opened our eyes to Mazda's SKYACTIV Technology and made us better drivers for sure. But the best part of the road trip: celebrating my teammate Winslow's birthday inside the Mazda CX-5 AWD on our way to Clark. Galing ng birthday bash mo Winslow! Oh yeah. This is what a road trip is all about.

LeBron James post-practice slam dunk showcase. VIDEO:

I think the best way to get LeBron James into the Slam Dunk Contest is to a) hold it after a Miami Heat practice b) tell him it's not televised and c) make sleeved jerseys optional - kahit walang jersey game na rin. MH
