Brazil Dominates 1st Race of the Challenge!


São Paulo, Brazil - On last sunday, January 14th, ocurred the 1st race of the Brazil x Portugal Challenge. The challenge had its structure determined so things could be equal for both countries. Our brothers from the Old Continent chose two combos, while the Brazilian organization picked another two.

The first race took place in Westhill, with the XRT (Brazilian combo). Each country could pick eight drivers. The brazilian drivers were chosen based on the LFSBR criteria (hotlaps).

The only portuguese driver who represented a real threat to the brazilian dominance was D. Santos (LFSW username: Max-Biaggi). In the rest of the positions, Brazil head a clear edge over Portugal. And this tendency showed in the qualifying, with the brazilians taking the better part of the grid.

After two contested restarts, the 'real thing' came up. Mogar Filho (LFSW user name: Mogar - WR holder for this combo / BRA) had the pole position, with Igor Kops (LFSW username: IgorBK / BRA) on 2nd and Carlos Wrobel (LFSW username: carlos h wrobel / BRA) in 3rd. The best portuguese was A. Soares (LFSW username: freeman29), on 7th place.

A touch between Wrobel and Kops in Turn 2 didn't do much good for the brazilians, with Kops e Mogar Filho falling to 5th and 6th place, respectively. Wrobel took the lead, with Fábio Eichler (LFSW username: Metal HeaDshot / BRA) in 2nd, with a safe lead. Renato Machado (LFSW username: brg renato / BRA) and A. Soares (POR) had a fierce battle in the middle of the crowd.

After the 11th lap there were no more good battles for positions, with the brazilians dominating the race. After the abandons by Wrobel (who was the leader at the time) and Mogar Filho (after an unfotunate touch with Marcio Campos - LFSW username: CamposMIC / BRA), Igor Kops took the lead for good and won the race.

Soon, the results and replays will be available for download at www.lfsbr.com, at the Resultados section (in portuguese).

The next round of the Challenge will take place at Aston Grand Touring, with the FZR. As this was a choice made by Portugal, the brazilians expect a bigger challenge this time.
