Carlos Manuel wins at Portuguese IC Track Nats Rd4

Carlos Manuel wins at Portuguese IC Track Nats Rd4

Round four of the Portuguese Nitro On-road Nationals was held at the Pista das Travessas in Sao Joao da Madeira. Carlos Manuel would take the TQ after troublefull qualifiers with the Superpole being won by young Tomas Andrade. With track temperatures reaching 60 degree Celsius tyre wear was very high and a new set of tyres only lasted about 15 minutes. The main final was then dominated by tyre tactics and it was the pole setter who made the best out of the conditions, setting flying laps in the first 15 minutes to get enough margin on the second placed driver to change all four tyres. At the end Carlos would bring home the win three laps ahead of runner-up, Hugo Mendes with Tomas Andrade rounding out the top 3 result.
