Rodrigues wins at Southern Portuguese regionals Rd3

Rodrigues wins at Southern Portuguese regionals Rd3

The 3rd round of the Southern Portuguese 1/8th off-road regionals was held at the Evora track under changing weather conditions that put the drivers and equipment to the test. While the first semifinal could be run under dry conditions with Vasco Rodrigues taking the win, the 2nd semifinal had to be stopped and later on restarted due to rain pouring down creating some mess on the track. The main final then had Flavio Matias leading for the first 15 minutes until a bad tyre choice for the drying conditions hindered Flavio, allowing Vasco to close up. Both battled for the next 10 to 15 minutes but Flavio was not able to hold the pace and this gave Vasco the advantage he needed to win the race. Antonio Peixe grabbed the 2nd spot in front of Flavio Matias who was able to secure the 3rd and final podium spot.
