This pioneering project was implemented under the Office of the Municipal Mayor.
Total Project Cost
The project was allocated Php75,000.00 by the Municipal Government of Rosario, Batangas headed by the Honorable Mayor Manuel B. Alvarez for participation in cash prizes and expenses for trophies.
The Municipality of Rosario, Batangas is fully supportive of the Department of Tourism in its effort to encourage increased tourism activities in the country. To this effect, the Annual Investment Program (AIP) for 2012 enunciated formulating and implementing tourism plans, programs, projects and activities under the Special Projects segment of the Office of the Municipal Mayor.
This special project immediately touches on cross-sectoral concerns and deliver impact across several basic sectors in terms of social and economic benefits.
The project lends meaningful support for the social development sector of sports and recreation by promoting motorcycle-based sports activities.
The availability of motorcycle-based sports activity where the youth can participate is a positive development for this sector. Involvement in sports activities provides opportunities for the beneficial use of time. It tends to divert the youth away from the influence of illegal drugs. This in turn can contribute to improved public order and safety situation in the municipality.
In terms of revenue contribution in the long term, to both the Municipal and Barangay Governments, the location of the race track and the surrounding properties in the area will generate increased property valuation and consequently, higher real property taxes. We could add business taxes and other fees in the positive impact of this project to the revenue collection of the municipality.
In terms of economic development, locals and visitors, the youth and adults, riders and spectators, all can have one more sports to focus on. This in turn can contribute to increased traffic of tourists in the municipality by attracting participants and spectators alike from out of town.
The economic development sector of tourism generates jobs and livelihood in its support industries like food establishments, resorts and lodging houses, real estate, personal services like barber shops and salons, souvenir shops and other commercial activities. Hence, this project can lead to more employment and livelihood opportunities for the people of Rosario.
