Race report by Ricardo Monteiro
The 5th and last round of the Portugal Center Regional Championship was held recently at the track in Guarda.

In all of the qualifying heats I drove consistently and made no mistakes, qualifying in the 1st starting position of the 1/2 main.

In the 1/2 main I just tried to run fast and clean. I won the ? main to once again place myself in the 1st starting position of the main final.

In the very first laps of the final, I battled with fellow Xray driver Pedro Figueiredo but, after the first pit stop, I ran away from the field to maintain my position and finish 1st in the last round of the championship (I only had to place myself in the semi finals to be the champion)

4th Hélio Lopes
5th Ricardo Martins
6th Lionel Sardinha
7th Nuno Costa
8th Renato Freitas
9th Pedro Figueiredo XRAY XB808

With this result and the other wins (4 because one round was cancelled due to bad weather)the championship ended like this:
