Portuguese Electric On-road Nationals Rd5 – Report

The 5th and final round of the Portuguese Electric On-road Nationals was held at the AAC track in Coimbra last weekend. In the Touring Car class it was Serpent’s Hugo Miguel with the overall TQ after sweeping the qualifiers by taking all rounds. A1 then was all smooth sailing for Hugo who controlled the race up front, racing on new rubber. A2 was a different affair though. With the other drivers now on new rubber and Hugo running on used tyres, he lacked traction in the opening stages and got into more trouble when he was hit from behind, meaning the decision for the win would be shifted to A3. The final A-main then was a 3-horse battle between Hugo, Mario Miranda (Xray) and Carlos Manuel (Capricorn). After a thrilling race it was Hugo with the win that also meant the overall championship title for him.

Over in Formula, that attracted nine entries, it was Paulo Bartolo with the TQ in two rounds of qualifying, meaning the pole position for the A-main finals followed by Daniel Lima and Luis Simoes. The finals were once again stuffed with super-close fighting. Ultimately Bartolo (Serpent) won the first and second leg of the finals for an early overall victory from Luís Simoes (Xray) and Daniel Lima (Serpent). With this result, Paulo Bartolo also took the overall win in the Formula Cup.

Thanks to Hugo Miguel for the report.
