Miguel Matias who just have recently joined the Team have been having a great debut at every race he attends and that is pushing the team forward. At this race it wasn't diferent, Matias was pushing hard and qualified 2nd into the semifinals, Nuno Rebelo, Rodrigo Luís and Tiago Aguiar also placed themselfs into semifinals. Unluck for Tiago Aguiar who faced some electronic problems and couldn't pass into the Main final, all the others went through.
