Franceschi wins Sao Paulo Stock Rd1

Franceschi wins Sao Paulo Stock Champs Rd1

Serpent have a report on their site from the first round of the Sao Paolo Championship held at the Sam’s Club track in Santo Andre, a city within Greater Sao Paulo, the State’s Capital. The format saw each driver get just a single qualifying round followed by four heats, the best three of which determine the overall result. Starting from pole the two first wins came easy for Serpent racer Felipe Franceschi but his team mate Thiago ‘Poldo’ Podolsky, although very fast, faced mechanical problems with the breakage of his front belt followed by the rear preventing him from getting a good score. In the third heat it would be Felipe’s turn suffer a broken belt, the team putting these failures down to the debris on a number of dirty spots on the track. With Felipe out, Poldo was the favorite but his back luck continued as a prototype aluminum central axle that is currently being developed by the team broke. The fourth and final heat saw Felipe take his third win of the day and with overall victory in the opening round of the championship in front of Corally racer Lincoln Almeida in 2nd and Xray driver Marcos Mayer in 3rd
