Bruno Coelho wins TC Rd3 in Portugal

Last weekend the third round of Portuguese Nationals took place in Torres Novas village at the track where the European TC Championship will be held later this summer. The temperatures where high all weekend and drivers got perfect conditions to compete and also practice and prepare for the upcoming Euros. There were 15 drivers in modified class and 8 in stock class. The practice runs showed that Bruno Coelho was the man to beat closely followed by, and always beating back the challenges of, his teammate Helder Silva. Pedro Moura unfortunately experienced some technical problems and was not able to keep up with them, however he still made it to the A main. During the finals Bruno and Helder again made it a superb race to watch for all spectators fighting for the top spot in the first final. In the second and third final run Bruno made a quick clean start and making use of the fight between Helder and last year’s champion Hugo Miguel was able to stretch his lead until the finish line.
