What Is Go Flat Out?
Go Flat Out started as a simple literary project in De La Salle University by a car nut named Isaac Atienza, a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering graduate. Balancing his academic and extra curricular works is his devotion to Go Flat Out. Isaac is an engineer by degree, businessman by livelihood, and automotive journalist and blogger during his free time. With a new vision to one day become a significant automotive media site in the Philippines, a couple of other car enthusiast friends decided to join in the fun in 2015.
Who Are Behind Go Flat Out?
Isaac Atienza: Editor In Chief and Multimedia Artist
With a creative eye in delivering informative, aesthetically pleasing, and sometimes (depressingly) funny content, Isaac Atienza is the man behind most of Go Flat Out’s photos, videos, and articles. With a degree in Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering, his skills in photography, videography, and other forms of creative visuals would otherwise lead people to suggest he is a Multimedia Arts graduate. As an engineer by degree, he also aims to one day be able to use his knowledge to contribute to the technical development of the automotive industry and infrastructure in the Philippines.
James Tagle: Marketing and Public Relations
Having grown up in a family that’s all about automobiles, he has driven his fair share of performance vehicles, on and off the track. His insights from a performance driving perspective will be invaluable when it comes to reviews and first impressions. James Tagle is also Go Flat Out’s face, the man who’s responsible for many of Go Flat Out’s VLOGs. His commendable communication skills and ability to forge relationships between Go Flat Out and the rest of the Philippine automotive industry leaders has helped propelled Go Flat Out to where it is now.
Janferds Balois and Jerald Valdez: Motorsports Correspondents
Father and son duo Janferds Balois and Jerald Valdez form a strong chemistry as they share and immerse us in the world of motorsports. Jerald Valdez, whom is involved in motorsports since the age of 12, along with his father, who owns and operates a car shop, are a valuable addition to the Go Flat Out team, due to their skills, experience, and technical know how with the ins and outs of a vehicle. Combined, these two have the skills and the knowledge to help us understand and appreciate the world of motorsports scene in the Philippines.
Nico Ylanan, John Carlos, and Paulo Bustamante
Quite busy in his work schedules, Nico Ylanan is also a writer for C! Magazine and AutoDeal. With a unique passion for motorbikes and an appreciation for the unique sensation of speed that motorbikes can only deliver, we’re glad to welcome him into Go Flat Out.
John Carlos, with his great work experience in handling a few franchises of Petron, the Philippines’ leading oil and gas company, John Carlos’ exposure into automobiles has been second nature.
Paulo Bustamante‘s valuable contribution to Go Flat Out’s marketing has helped cultivate the status that Go Flat Out is in now.
These three people have their fair share of race cars and track events, and their skills in driving are always a good thing.
So, What’s Go Flat Out’s Style Of Writing?
We’re Automotive Bloggers Most Of The Time
In the end, Go Flat Out has mostly dwelled on the entertainment side of things, with plenty of travel videos, VLOGs, humorous, and highly opinionated content.
We’re Automotive Journalists When The Situation Calls
We think as a social catalyst, we carry the responsibility of being socially aware, therefore recognizing the need to report objectively when the situation calls.
We’re All About The Joy Of Driving
Go Flat Out does not only want to focus on the cars itself. This is why we post travel blogs, roadtrips, and VLOGs. The joy of driving is not just talking about cars itself, but it’s talking about the entire driving experience as a whole, and the joy one is felt when behind the wheel.
