Honda youth program
HONDA recently drew 24 students from eight schools in a training driving event in its sustained efforts to contribute to better road safety.
Partnering with the International Organization of Student Youth Leaders (IOSYL), Honda held a guided experiential drive through the Honda SENSING–equipped models of the All-New BR-V, Civic and HR-V.
During the actual driving exercises, the students were guided by Honda’s technical experts and certified driving instructors. The participants were highly engaged as they got a first-hand experience with Honda’s advanced driver-assist system using vehicles equipped with Honda SENSING, such as the Civic, All-New HR-V, and All-New BR-V 1.5 VX CVT.
“This program is designed to strengthen our consciousness about how our own actions can help reduce road accidents,” said Honda president Masahiko Nakamura.
Such a noble move.
PEE STOP Spencer Yu will launch the BMW 7 on March 27. A big bash coming up at Rockwell… Stroke survivor Ray Butch “Elvis” Gamboa had the surprise of his life when we visited him last weekend in his Paranaque home. He continues to improve, having already recovered his appetite for food—and drinks as well. “He now takes a double of single malt whiskey every night,” said Wii, Elvis’s handsome son. Our group included Maricar Parco, Tey Sornet, Ron delos Reyes, Jeff Reyes, Aris Ilagan, Manny delos Reyes, Vernon Sarne and Danny Isla. Fond memories were shared in wild abandon while the band feasted on Jake P. Ayson’s guinatang kuhol (escargot) and Korean pancit. Vince Socco was supposed to be with us but for a prior appointment. Being Mr. Generous non pareil, he offered his Lexus ES to me—including his personal driver. What a dude, this Sir Vince.
