NOSRAM rules PTCC Rd1 in Stock and Modified!

Friday, 25. April 2014

Fernando Cardoso (Stock) and Bruno Coelho (Modified) TQ and win at the first round of the Portuguese Electric Touring Car Championship.

The first round of the PTCC took place in the beautiful town of Coimbra. Drivers could enjoy excellent weather conditions and a well prepared track.  
In the 10.5T Stock class, it was Schumacher/NOSRAM driver Fernando Cardoso driving to TQ honors, by winning two out of four rounds. Fernando was followed by his teammate Pedro Silva and Jorge Simões. It was Pedro turning the fastest lap of the Stock event with 22.067 seconds.
Finals saw a NOSRAM internal battle for the victory. Fernando Cardoso won the first final with a comfortable gap on Pedro Silva. The second final proved to be very thrilling. Pedro was able to take over the lead when Fernando made a mistake. But Pedro lost valuable seconds when trying to overtake a slower driver. This resulted in Bruno Castela cruising to victory in A2, with Pedro Silva directly behind on the second place. Bad luck for Pedro continued in the last final as he had to accept a 10 seconds penalty for a jump start. So Fernando drove to an easy start-to-finish victory and took the overall round 1 win at this year’s PTCC Stock competition.
With Fernando Cardoso 1st, Pedro Silva 3rd, Rui Almeida 4th, Duarte Vasconcelos 6th and Nuno Jacinto 10th five out of ten A-final drivers relied on NOSRAM power for their racing.  
Racing in the Modified class was clearly dominated by Xray/NOSRAM driver and TC Euro’s A-finalist Bruno Coelho. Bruno took the TQ spot by being the fastest driver in three out of four rounds of qualifying. In the finals, he continued to show great driving and putt a clean 3/3 victory onto the track.  
Congratulations to the Portuguese NOSRAM team! You just continue where you finished last season. Great job done!
