Valdeno Brito crashed hard during the training on Saturday and Julio Campos´car was hit. However, for team leader, Rodolpho Mattheis, Prati-Donaduzzi has everything to make a great race with fast cars and circuit experience.

The asphalt is not very abrasive, consequently the tyres are not worn so much and we hope the weather helps us and the rain does not disturb. In general, both drivers like the circuit and our car has always been right there. We are ready to have a very good weekend. Our aim is to get points from Daniel Serra, who is the current leader. We have to take at least 6 points per round by the end of the year to have a chance to fight for the title. Mathematically, we can reach”, he explains.
