Manuel successful at Portuguese 200mm Nats Rd1

Carlos Manuel successful at Portuguese 200mm Nats Rd1

Round one of the Portuguese On-road Nationals was held at the Coimbra track in rainy weather conditions. After a rained out qualification the weather seemed to turn to the better around lunch break and come the start of the main final the weather situation was open and unclear if it would start to rain again or not. Carlos Manual, who had some mixed qualifiers, opted to go for rain tyres shortly before the start and at the tone he just waited for the other drivers to take off to see how his car would behave. To his surprise his Xray was very drivable and after gaining confidence he managed to make up the lost time and by lap 8 he was in front of the pack and from there he was able to control the gap and to bring home the win from Franco Vilarinho (Mugen) in second and Tiago Afonso (KM) in third.

1. Carlos Manuel
