Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, May 19) — Filipino-British Alex Brown reigned supreme in his division at the first leg of the Formula V1 Challenge 2019.

The 16-year-old racer bested more experienced drivers in all of the amateur class races held on Saturday and Sunday at the Batangas Racing Circuit.

The race featured a mix of local and international drivers in a 12-lap course.

This is the first time Brown competed in the Formula V1. His previous experience was in go-karting, where he was hailed champion numerous times.

In Formula V1, drivers use a single-seat race car with a machine built in partnership with a Japanese company.

The second leg will be in July, the third leg will be in October, and the last leg will be in November. It will all take place at the Clark International Speedway.

Winners will earn corresponding points which will then be accumulated to determine the champion.

The racer with the most number of points at the end of the four-leg series will book a seat in the Formula Vita Japan, which will happen in December at the Suzuka Circuit.
