V8 Supercars look set to head to the Philippines, according to local reports.

The Inquirer, the Philippine’s most widely circulated newspaper, says today that V8 Supercars has struck a deal with the Philippine Sports Commission to host a V8 event at the Clark International Speedway “sometime in 2013.”

The report says that Toleman Motorsport Management, former MINI Challenge administrators in Australia, will be the organisers of the event.

A V8 event in the Philippines in 2013 would add to the recently announced Texas race in the United States.

V8 Supercars Chairman Tony Cochrane has said on a number of occasions that he is aiming to have 18 events on the V8 calendar by 2013.
