This last weekend 8 and 9 of july we had the race number 4 of the Portuguese Nationals with 16 entries, this time we race at home in our local “Travessas” circuit, we start on saturday the practise day with a personal record for us and the second fastest lap in this circuit in this class 18.435sec by Paulo Jacinto and Daniel Lima very close with 18.537sec.
On sunday we start the day always on the same pace of the fastest drivers but the morning was a litle bit of humidity and we need to change our setup, but the day was going hot and the traction of the circuit turn very high and we change again the setup, in the end of qualifications we had Paulo with number 5 and Daniel with 7 position on grid in A main and Adalberto Pinto with 2 position in B main.
The finals in this fast circuit was master show with all drivers pushing to the limits but Paulo was flawless with two 1st places win the race, first one for this finnest car Serpent 4X in our Nats, Daniel Lima have some problems due to some mistakes who cause a broken wing 7 place for him, Adalberto Pinto in the best part of the day for him the finals achieve a second strong place in B main who give a 12º place.
For me as team manager was a happy day because I know we have a good car and good drivers, so we are a strong team.
Next stop Lisbon “Monsanto” circuit
