Ricardo Nogueira wins at Portuguese nats Rd6

Ricardo Nogueira wins at Portuguese nats Rd6

The sixth round of the Portuguese nitro on-road nationals tool place at the tight and slippery track of Figueira da Foz. Serpent’s Ricardo Nogueira took the win with a 1-stop tyre strategy in front of Bruno Coelho (Xray) and José Félix (Serpent) who encountered engine problems during the final but earned a lucky third place in the end. Fernando Dantas (Serpent), who had to skip Saturday’s practice, came in fourth running only one set of tyres. Jorge Azinheira (Serpent) was hampered by clutch problems so he had to start from the back of the field but a good race pace earned him the fifth place in the final.
