Simões & Miguel take Portuguese National titles

Simões & Miguel take Portuguese National titles

Jorge Simões and Hugo Miguel take titles at the season finale of Portuguese EP TC championships at the Maiorca Track, near Figueira da Foz. In the Stock class Pedro Canastra with is TOP showed pretty well in qualifying, TQ’ing 3 of the 4 rounds and grabbed the TQ spot for the finals. But in the finals he couldn’t convert his performance into the overall win since Jorge Simões with his Associated TC6 found a way to counter Pedro’s performance. Jorge won all the A finals and become the 2011 Stock Portuguese Champion. Jorge stated that is very grateful for all of is support this year, specially to Rick and Traci at Team Associated, Weylin Rose at Viper R/C and Nuno Carriço from Super*Models.

Round 5 Stock Top 3:
1. Jorge Simões – Associated/Viper/Vampire
2. José Figueiredo – Xray/Tekin
3. Luís Correia – TOP/LRP

The Modified class was dominated by Rúben Francisco, although the champion was only crowned at the last round, it was a very competitive race with many top Portuguese drivers attending. Rúben took the TQ and win but it was not easy, having a very tight work schedule this year didn’t allow him to fight for the championship but he showed really well in this round. The Champion Hugo Miguel didn’t make things easy for Rúben and grabbed the second place in the race, both drivers followed by João Malveiro. The finals were very exciting to watch and for sure any driver could win this round, awesome race. Hugo Miguel would also like to take the opportunity to thank to his sponsors Mr. Bento and Mr. Gonçalo from Gatek Racing for their full support with SpeedPassion and MR33 products.
