Dominic Roque shares how he got into his longtime passion for motorsports.
After being part of the primetime series La Luna Sangre last year, Dominic Roque said he is focusing on more on than just acting this year. “I’m into the second year sa Formula V1. Pero when it comes to showbiz siguro pahinga pa rin. Pero may ginagawa akong mga movies. Like now I’m doing a movie. So it will be shown this coming June ata. Working title namin is G. Pero sa serye wala pa ako. Medyo pahinga. Lately mas naging flexible sa work. I’m driving in Formula V1 now. It’s like the next step from Vios cup racing. A petroleum company got me to race for them so we had another year this year,” he shared.
Although he has only been racing for a few years, Dominic said he has always been into the sport. “I came from racing motorcycles. I started in 2015 nag-race ako for a year. Grabe yung adrenaline na naiibigay, but the risk of having an accident masyadong mataas and hindi siya fit sa trabaho ko. So it was better to do something else na medyo close which is yung car racing. Mas safe siya kesa sa motor. But I’m really into sports eh. I like being active. Hindi ako mapakali. Sobrang hilig ko kasi sa motor so it started there tapos tuloy tuloy na. Iba-iba yung mga ginagawa ko. Pero yung motorcycle andiyan pa rin. Lagi ko pa rin ginagawa. I go out of town. I ride abroad. So lagi ko pa rin ginagawa. So it’s still there. Before sa motorcycle I have been in an accident many times pero hindi naman ako nababalian, puro mga gasgas lang. I’m still okay,” he said.
Another thing Dominic is looking forward to is racing against fellow celebrity and longtime racer Matteo Guidicelli. “Now is the Formula V1. It’s going to be more competitive and challenging kasi I heard that Matteo Guidicelli is entering which is a threat to me also because I’ve been racing cars for only two years. And siyempre napakagaling ni Matteo because he came from go-kart and nag-champion na siya dun many times. Yun yung medyo challenging for me this year na may bago akong kalaban. Hindi kasi ako nag-stay sa one activity but I need to focus now sa racing kasi it’s going to be more challenging nga because of the other racers. I’m into outdoor activities also,” he said.
