First round of the Portuguese Nationals is done and what a weekend !! I was able to finish 1st in e-buggy with the Cobra 811-e and 2nd in nitro-buggy with my Cobra SRX8.
In e-buggy i won the A1 and A2 which gave me the overall win. My car was really good and fast.
In GP buggy after qualifications i was 3rd and wasn’t comfortable with my setup yet. We made a couple of changes for the semi and actually it worked perfectly as my car was amazing and super fast lapping everyone at semis which means i would start on pole for the a-main.
The A-main was an epic race to don’t forget ! I had a clean start and was leading the race in front of João Figueiredo just behind me. He made a small mistake which gave me more confortable leading until almost the last two fuel stops. Then i’ve made some mistakes and then we were battling for the lead always togheter switching positions until the last couple of laps where i’ve made mistakes and he could get the win with some room to breathe…
Congrats to him for the win and for the amazing a-main we had together. I’m very happy as well as my teammate Cristian Villar with SRX8 from Spain was able to make the A-main. So we had two cars in the a-main
Overall it was a good weekend to start the PT Nats. My package was very good and i’m happy as we improved since the qualifications until the a-main. As allways thanks to all the people who help me on and off the track and of course my sponsors for making it possible.
Next up is the Neo race in Uk
