Crispulo Eusebio III was among the names randomly drawn from among the 1,059 participants of the JSK Auto Fun Run V.  Each of the lucky 15 were made to choose a letter from the BUILD YOUR DREAMS tagline of BYD and it was Eusebio who chose the winning letter, "I".

Manila, Philippines.  Solar Transport and Automotive Resources Corporation (STAR Corp), the exclusive distributor of BYD (Build Your Dreams) automobiles in the Philippines, awarded 27-year-old businessman Crispulo Eusebio III of Santa Cruz, Manila, a brand new BYD F0 during the recently concluded JSK Auto Fun Run V event held at the Convention Center of the Fontana Hot Spring Leisure Parks in Clark, Pampanga.

As an event partner of JSK, BYD raffled off the BYD F0 as grand prize among the 1,059 participants who joined the Auto Fun Run V from Trinoma in Quezon City to Clark on November 14.  The event was intended to promote camaraderie among car organizations including the recently formed BYD AutoClub and enjoined their members to contribute to the Reach Out World Wide (ROWW) Foundation, the charity of the late actor Paul Walker of the famed Fast and Furious movie series, which was among the first responders to victims of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) that devastated the Philippines in 2013. 

Eusebio was among the 15 participants, whose names were randomly drawn to pick a letter frrom the BYD tagline, BUILD YOUR DREAMS.  Each letter was assigned to a box that contained a card key and a special prize, but only one card key was capable of switching on the engine of the BYD F0 grand prize on display.

"Lahat ng letters napili na.  Yung letter "I" nalang ang hindi, kaya yun ang naging letter ko," said Eusebio. (All the other letters were already chosen, except for the letter "I".  So that was why it became my letter.)

Eusebio was the second to the last participant who tried his card key on the F0.  As soon as he pressed the Push/Start Button, the engine started to his surprise.  This prompted the BYD staff as well as the entire audience to scream and applaud in delight.

"I am grateful to BYD and my friend, Kim Tan, of JSK, who invited me to join the Auto Fun Run.  I really think that the F0 was meant for me because I was about to go home when all of a sudden, my name was called!  Since I am not a member of any car club, now I think that I'll be a member of the BYD car club because I'll be driving the F0 as my every day car," added Eusebio.

During his speech, STAR Corp managing director, Mark Andrew Tieng said: "The BYD F0 grand raffle prize is our infinitely cool car.  Some of you have probably heard of this interesting car because of its exploits in the world of motorsports, where it competed in the Philippine Micro Series car category of the 2014 Circuit Showdown and won the championship.  In the 2014-2015 Car of the Year awards, the BYD F0 GLi MT was accorded the Value for Money Award by the Car Awards Group Inc."

The BYD F0 has impressive credentials -- from its bold design and stuling, simple yet trendy features like the adaptive tachometer, the LED index with backlight and AUX port, Smart Keyless Entry System that allows the driver to open the car within a one-meter radius and start the engine with just one push of a button, and its mighty 1.0-liter three-cylinder 12-valve engine with multi-point sequential fuel injection which is designed for high efficiency and fuel economy.

"BYD vehicles have a manufacturer-backed five year warranty or 100,000 kilometer coverage, whichever comes first, covering the entire vehicle from the engine, transmission and all parts.  They also come with a free one-year emergency roadside assistance package for its car owners through its partnership with the Automobile Association of the Philippines as well as the BYD Response Operations or BRO, which is STAR Corp's unique approach to meet and exceed our customer's expectation and provide the services they need wherever they are.  Like a real-life BRO, BYD will provide that personal and reliable touch, offering expert information, recommendations and solutions to our customers on how to get the best motoring experience from their BYD vehicle," added Tieng.
