GENEVA, April 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Andre Negrao of International Draco Racing, and Henrique Martins of Cram Competition, gave hope to the future of Brazilian racing by their displays in the World Series by Renault ("WSR") championships at Aragon MotorLand, Spain.
Sensational drives by the two drivers after a cold start to qualifying delivered dividends against the experienced pack of the series. Andre secured a podium place on Saturday as the third fastest rookie in the first race of Formula Renault 3.5.
Henrique overcame a six-car pile up at the start of Saturday's race, to finish 9th in the Eurocup Formula 2.0 category. Despite starting the race from the back of the grid, due to an earlier speeding violation, the fighting spirit shone through further cementing his growing talent on the WSR circuit.
The duo both started Sunday's finals from 21st position in the Formula 3.5 and 2.0 categories. Following a hard fought race, the pair was rewarded by their skill and determination on the track due thanks to an outstanding display of raw talent. Andre capitalizing on mistakes by others was able to secure an outstanding finish in 9th place, gaining 12 places from his starting position on the grid.
Henrique in the final of the Eurocup Formula 2.0 finished in 10th place to claim one of his best performances of his career. The results will give hope to their future credentials as the rising stars of Brazilian motor racing. The WSR moves to Spa on 30 April for the second installment of this exciting series.
