  • Gabriel Casagrande is double champion of Stock Car

    Gabriel Casagrande (#83, A.Mattheis/Vogel Team) won his second title in the Stock Car Pro Series this Sunday (17/12), in Interlagos, São Paulo. For the second time in three seasons (2021/23), the driver combined great performance and great consistency to win the title. In the team of Mauro Vogel and Andreas Mattheis, the 28-year-old driver now equals the number of titles held by Giuliano Losacco (2004/05) and Rubens Barrichello (2014/22). Pic: Duda Bairros The last round of the championship for Casagrande was marked by a very intense dispute with Rafael Suzuki (#8, Pole Motorsport Team) on the last lap of race 1. Gabriel finish third, while his main rival this year, Daniel Serra (#29, Eurofarma RC Team), was fifth. In the second race, he was extremely conservative and finish 21st, while Serra was far from the result needed to be champion — Daniel had to win the race 2 — and finished 12th. “I have to thank God for the gift of life and for giving me the opportunity and the ability to be here once again doing this. I love my family, who always supports me when I'm angry at home without racing... I thank my sponsors, who make this happen, to everyone who is cheering at home. All energy is very welcome. We are two-time champions and we are going for more”, said Casagrande. Pics: Victor Eleutério (L and C) and Magnus Torquato (R) Casagrande's 2023 title was built by three victories, two poles, seven podiums, two fastest laps and 14 appearances in the top ten group. Gabriel scored 308 points, while runner-up Daniel Serra finished the season with 296. Pic: Duda Bairros Having a runner-up like Daniel Serra, one of the most complete drivers in Brazil, ends up valuing Casagrande's achievement even more. Three-time champion Serra said “Me and Eurofarma RC Team have been together for seven years: seven years fighting for the championship. We were runner-up three times, champion three times and third place once. We didn't lose the title today, but during the season. There came a time when we thought we wouldn't even fight for the title anymore, so, for that reason, we have to celebrate this runner-up,” said the 39-year-old driver. And even though Serra postponed his dream of another championship in 2024, Eurofarma RC Team had many reasons to celebrate. The team led by Rosinei Campos won the Team’s title for the 12th time. The Eurofarma RC Team gest 497 points added by the three-time champion duo Serra and Ricardo Maurício. Ipiranga A.Mattheis Racing, led by Andreas Mattheis and represented on the track by Thiago Camilo and César Ramos, was runner-up, with 470. Drivers’s championship (Top10): 1.

  • Copa Truck: Felipe Giaffone is the 2023 champion

    The last round of the 2023 Copa Truck season, held in Interlagos, São Paulo, was very exciting. Two pilots: Giaffone and Roberval; and a dream: the championship title. Pic: Duda Bairros Felipe Giaffone (Volkswagen #4) directly faced his rival, Roberval Andrade (Mercedes #15), in both races. In first race, right at the start, Roberval tried to pass between Felipe and the wall. The crash was not good for both. Pic: Vanderley Soares But, at the end of race 1, Giaffone won and Roberval was eighth, ensuring the pole for the second race. Giaffone would start in eighth on the grid because of the inverted grid rule. In race 2, the math for the title was very simple: whoever finished in front would be the champion. Roberval maintained the lead at the start. During the race, Giaffone overtook others trucks, as did his teammate, Beto Monteiro (Volkswagen #88). With three laps remaining, Beto passed Roberval. On the next lap, on the Senna's "S", Felipe shared the corner with Roberval, who cut the corner and maintained second position. Roberval took the checkered flag behind Beto Monteiro and ahead of Felipe. With this result on the track, he would be the champion. But the stewards, almost two hours after the end of the race, announced a five-second penalty for Roberval and he dropped to fifth place. With this penalty for Roberval, Felipe Giaffone won the Copa Truck title with a seven-point advantage over him. Giaffone, which won the first title in the history of the Copa Truck, in 2017, reaches its second championship in this category. The driver already has four other titles (2007/09/11/16) in the other truck category, called Formula Truck. After the 2023 Copa Truck title, Felipe thanked his team and teammates on the track. "Without them, I wouldn't have been champion. Without them, it would have been very difficult. And being champion with an innovative electric hybrid truck project in the same year that my two children were just made this achievement even more special", commented Felipe. Pic: Duda Bairros The Giaffone family ends the 2023 season with titles. In addition to Felipe, his son Nic was USF Juniors champion in his first season in US Motorsport and his other son Tito was champion of the Copa São Paulo de Kart Granja Viana in the Rotax Max class. "In 2010, the same situation happened and I took the title. This year, it was his turn. We don't always win, but I'm going to use this to improve and come back even stronger", adds Roberval. In the Super class, the title went to Thiago Rizzo (#17), who closed the gap he had in relation to Felipe Tozzo (#57), who didn't score a point on the weekend at Interlagos. Evandro Camargo (#69) was runner-up, 16 points behind Rizzo. Bia Figueiredo (#111) finished the season with the same score as Camargo, but came in third for having fewer wins. Pic: Vanderley Soares Copa Truck Pro Championship: 1. Felipe Giaffone (#4): 263 points 2. Roberval Andrade (#15): 256 3. Beto Monteiro (#88): 226 4. Raphael Abbate (#26): 211 5.
