Luis Cortez takes the win at 2nd Portuguese Regional

Luis Cortez takes the win at 2nd Portuguese Regional

Last Sunday the second round of the Portuguese Regionals was held in the Circuito Automodelismo do Funchal. Mugen driver Luis Cortez, took the pole and another perfect win, the temperature variations having a big influence in the outcome of this event with a lot of drivers having engine trouble all weekend, getting the engine perfectly tuned was a challenge. In the main final Team Magic driver Fabio Barros drove a smart race managing the second place of the podium, while Veteran Serpent driver Alcino Camacho, after a difficult year, returned to the podium in 3rd place showing us that experience and know how is far more important than a top engine or chassis.

Thanks to Paulo Rodrigues for the report.
