Last October 27, 2019, over 400 vehicles and 1,200 participants gathered in front of the Sabah Tourism Ministry in downtown Kota Kinabalu to join Borneo Safari 29 – the biggest 4×4 pilgrimage in the region.

In front of thousands of spectators, TeamPH made its debut through Borneo Safari Philippine Qualifier (BSPHQ) champions Edison Dungca and Bomvet Santos.

The encountered mechanical issues at the early stages of the competition and finished placing 18th in a pool of 23 after just six special stages (SS). Fortunately, the duo rallied during the latter part of the competition to finish 14th overall and second in the International Category. For a first-timer competing against seasoned veterans from Malaysia and Russia, it was a memorable and proud moment for TeamPH 110.

Taking top honors were Liew Fui Kong and Agustinus Asananen Bin Ara of Team 128 followed by Lo Fui Min and Alshen Lo Xiuen Lung of Team #123 with Roland Liew Sue Khiong and Sajeymee Bin Janish of Team 133 rounding off the top three.

Pagquil and Lim, on the other hand, held on to the 19th spot until the final day of the competition, succumbing in the last special stage to finish 21st in the 23-competitor pool.
