Globe Slipstream 2.0 once again give the public the thrill of Formula One racing, the sport which Marlon Stockinger is now starting to dominate. (June 26, 2015)—The country’s leading mobile brand Globe Telecom brings the exciting Formula One rush to the Philippines once again as it presets Slipstream 2.0, an event celebrating the journey of Marlon Stockinger as the first and only Filipino to make his way into the competitive world of Formula One Racing.
“This sport may not be as popular as boxing and basketball in the country, but with Globe Slipstream 2.0, we can bring Marlon’s journey and the F1 experience closer to the Filipinos,” said Dan Horan, Senior Advisor for Consumer Business.
“We want every Filipino to see and experience the excitement that millions around the world associate with this sport. But aside from that, this is a way for us to really express how we support and empower the Filipino dream,” Horan said.
GLOBE BELIEVES IN MARLON STOCKINGER
Marlon Stockinger is the perfect embodiment of Globe Telecom. With an impressive track record and a real talent for racing, Globe is very confident that he is well on his way to becoming the first Filipino F1 driver. According to Horan, “Marlon’s journey is almost the same as ours. His passion to succeed is as strong as our passion to continuously give the best products and services to our customers and remain on top of our game.”
With Marlon living the life in the fast lane, Globe sees a wonderful opportunity to uphold its aspiration to enable the passions and interests of each Filipino, and support their digital lifestyle.
“If we can support Marlon in reaching his goal, we can champion every Filipino. If we can sustain Marlon’s fast-paced, highly-connected digital lifestyle, we can empower everyone,” Horan added.
