Team Novadriver Audi wants FIA GT3 home race victories at Portimao


By Tarek Ramchani

The FIA GT3 European Championship is moving to Portugal next weekend. The challenging and very popular Portimao circuit will host round 4 of the series. Team Novadriver with their Audi are at home eager to fight for race wins.

The customer Portuguese Audi team is a new comer to the FIA European GT3 Championship, however they have a great amount of experience at Algarve. Race wins in both Portuguese GT Championship and the Spanish based Iber GT Series. At the Algarve a single new spec Audi R8 LMS ultra will be fielded for the team's star Cesar Campaniço and his team mate Ni Amorim. The #14 car has already scored a pole position this year at Zolder and took a fine third place last time out at Navarra. Cesar Campaniço is clearly the fastest of the two, and will try hard to score pole positions for both races. In the overall championship standings, both drivers are sixth with 51 points.

FIA GT3 is really struggling this season to have good grids, however the races are really fought even with few cars on track. Multiple winners so far in the first six races of the season. Team Novadriver will fight hard to score their first European victory, and we wish them the best of luck for that.
