New drivers, new teams and sponcers. All these ingredients will be in this Stock Car Pro Series season. Besides this news, the grid will presents drivers with a lot of experience and four F1 former drivers. All 31 drivers will race at Goiânia, first round of 2023's calendar, this weekend. They start a big fight for the most important brazilian motorsport’s titule.


This season will take some news. The most important one is the tires. Pirelli will not be on the grid anymore. The south corean Hankook will equip all cars. Because of the new tires, the height of the cars and the rear wing are new too this season.


The first impression is that, with such a critical change, the balance must be even greater as drivers and teams start from step zero.


“We have a process of adapting to the unknown, and tires are pure grip”, said the 2022 champion, Rubens Barrichello. “Along with that, we have the brakes, which are super important in Stock Car. So we go into this first test diving into the unknown, because the tires can change the height of the car, which can change its balance and, fundamentally, can change the structure and balance of the brakes”, said the Stock Car’s two-time champion, Barrichello.


"I'm happy with the first day here in Goiânia. I could feel the difference with the new tires. I really liked the Hankook tires. I think that now the question is the team's adaptation to the new compound. I'm sure we will fight for good results this season", said Nelson Piquet Jr.


A good grip of tires with the ground will make all that braking force that the driver has in the discs and brakes pads be transmitted to tires, making the car stop sooner, decelerate more and, very important, not locking the wheels.


“It will be a great challenge for drivers and teams, because everything changes with a new tire supplier: compound, grip level, durability, how the car should be set up and how the driver will drive on the brakes pedal, as well as his approach on turn entries and exits. In the end, this should bring even more balance and make the disputes more exciting”, says Brezolin, engineer that works for Fras-le & Fremax, the official and exclusive supplier of brake pads for the Stock Car Pro Series.
