As a mom of a little one who loooveessss Hot Wheels, we grabbed the chance to join this 1st ever EPIC RACE! Last April 10, we went to SM Megamall and joined the race. To join you need to buy 2 basic cars, then proceed to the registration area to get your racing number/tag. Once registered racers will be given a chance to warm up and try their cars on the gravity-driven track. Top 20 with the farthest racing cars get to qualify for the Final Race at SM Mall of Asia.
We brought with us his 2 CHAMPION CARS as we call it, because these 2 cars made him 1st runner-up from the Hot Wheels Convention 2015. 🙂
My little one was very excited! Raix was racer #32!
He obediently followed the game rules. He practiced and had his car warmed-up. He waited patiently in line. He even made friends. 🙂 The boys were talking about their toy cars as if it was a real car! Hahaha
After warming-up we also checked the diorama. A child’s room with the latest Hot Wheels Track Builders.
By 3 pm the race had started. Kids are accompanied by their parent. A child is given two attempts. But if you buy more cars you get more chances to qualify. The farthest recorded travel of their car will be chosen.

You may view his actual race HERE. His car made it to 200m.
After the race nobody was notified if they made it to the Finals, but we were asked to wait for the list of qualifiers on the official FB page of Make It Epic PH.
Thank you so much toy Kingdom SM Megamall and Make it Epic PH Hot Wheels for teaming up to give a wonderful summer adventure to our little ones. Me and my family definitely had fun.
To those out there, they still have 1 more qualifying round at SM San Lazaro on April 23-24. Go on and race and see you in the Final Race at SM Mall of Asia!!!
