Simões & Miguel take Portuguese Rd2 victory

Simões & Miguel take Portuguese Rd2 victory

Round 2 of the Portuguese Nationals took place recently at the Sintra track in Lisbon. The stock class was again dominated by Jorge Simões with his Associated TC6 securing TQ and the overall win. This time Mário Coelho was the man that challenged Jorge in the Finals, with Mário winning the first A-main but then some accidents in A-main 2 took him out of contention. In the last A-main Mário followed Jorge in the last 4 minutes, but the Associated driver never gived a space for the Tamiya of Mário to pass and secured the win and provisional leadership of the championship.
