Fraga gets pole in Velocitta after draw with Serra

An incredible draw marked the dispute for pole position in the tenth stage of the 2023 Stock Car Pro Series season, held at Velocitta, in São Paulo. Felipe Fraga and Daniel Serra recorded exactly the same time: 1min31s089. However, the Blau Motorsport driver and youngest Stock Car champion (2016) got the better of the three-time champion (2017/18/19) for having registered the brand first and, therefore, will start at the front for the third time in the championship . It was also Fraga's 11th pole in the category.

Fraga achieved five podiums this year, including four second places, as in Buenos Aires, where the driver also came from pole position. Now, Felipe has the chance to, once again, seek his long-awaited first victory competing for Rodolpho Mattheis' team. The 2016 champion has already scored two points for pole position this Saturday, thus reaching 204 points in the championship. Serra returns to the front row and repeats the result obtained in the Cascavel classification, when he also started alongside Fraga and won Race 1 in Cascavel.

The session also had another tie: Di Mauro and Felipe Massa (former F1 driver) recorded the same time at the end of Q2, but Gaetano advanced to the dispute for pole after having 1min31s989 first. Thus, the former Formula 1 driver will start in seventh, with Ricardo Maurício (Eurofarma RC) in eighth.
