Costa wins Final Portugese 1/8th National

Last weekend the final round of the Portuguese National Championship was run at the Sintra track in Lisbon. It was the first time a Shepherd Velox showed up at a track in Portugal and was also the debut 1/8th scale race for current 1/10th scale Champion Filipe Costa. He quickly got used to the car and was able to claim 2nd position after the qualifying. Because there are no direct qualifiers in Portugal all drivers had to pass the semi-finals to reach the main final and Filipe could win his semi final without any problems and secured himself pole position on the starting grid for the final. At the beginning of the final he lost the lead to Serpent racer Ricardo Nogueira but after 25 minutes he was able to take over the lead again and never lost it until the finishing line.
