Motor Image Pilipinas, Inc., the exclusive distributor of Subaru in the Philippines, is proud to present the top 10 finalists of the 2019 Subaru Palm Challenge: Philippine Face-Off.

From more than a hundred participants who dared to endure fatigue and the unpredictable weather condition over the Subaru Festiva 2019 held last September 21 at the BGC Amphitheater, Taguig City, the competition ended with ten finalists. The finalists gave their all to keep his palm on the all-new Subaru Foresters featured in the competition but it was the veteran competitor Reggie Purugganan who outlasted the field. Puruggan fought for the top spot against newcomer Nikko Blancada who endured 8:14.41, 9 seconds shy of the local champion’s 8:14.50 record.

Only three from the 2018 Philippine team made it this year. Last year’s Country Winner, Filmark Bernante placed 6th while veteran Mark Guballa finished in 7th place. Also, long-time team captain Carlo Talahib who have been joining and representing the country in the competition for 8 years already is once again set to represent the country.
