Success in Sao Paolo

Brazilian GT ChampionshipIt was a dream start to 2013 season for the Lotus Evora GT4 and Brazilian based race team Dragao Motorsport who entered the first race of the season on the streets of Sao Paolo (Anhembi).

Race 1 saw the duo of Valter Pinheiro and young newcomer Renan War come home 3rd in class after some good on-track battles.

After some overnight set-up changes to improve the car for the tricky street circuit conditions, the team made a good start to race 2.  They made solid progress through the field and not only took the class win, but also crossed the finishing line in 3rd place overall mixing it with the much faster GT3 machinery.

Valter Pinheiro concluded: "We had very good race pace and the behaviour of the Evora on this type of circuit was perfect.  I have much to be thankful for the work done by Dragao Motorsport for giving us a car to challenge for victories’’
