On saturday the 1st May, was held the third portuguese national at the Sintra track. A superb layout, probably one of the nice´s track´s here in Portugal, but very abrasive and low grip.

After qualifing it was Daniel Ferreira(XRAY) who claimed pole with 13 laps in 5m10s. Behind Daniel it was Filipe Costa with Associated TC3 in 5m15s. Third was Miguel Macieira with HPI Pro4, always very fast in 5m20s.

In the first final it was Daniel who cruised away followed by Fernando Cordeiro with HPI Pro4, and Hugo Silva with XRAY, both pass the Filipe in the last´s laps, probably a wrong choose of tyres for him.

The second final was almost a copy of the first final, but now, with Filipe Costa's car very fast, finished in second at 5 seconds of Daniel. In third Fernando Cordeiro.
