Competition Coupe Makes The Podium In Brazil

Posted on May 06, 2011


Sao Paolo, Brazil - Wagner Ebrahim finished third in the first Brazilian GT3 race of the weekend at the Itaipava Sao Paulo Nestle Indy 300 April 30 – May 1, after a big scare during the course of the rain-swept race.

“We didn’t have a good qualifying session and we also had some problems during the race,” said Ebrahim. “Our car turned off in the midle of the Maginal Tietê straight because of the bumps and I lost a lot of time. It was a moment of fright but the car got back to normal and was perfect after that. It was good to get on the podium with important points for the title match.”

His teammates, Assunção and Castropil, finished seventh in the second race, while Ebrahim finished twelfth.

Ebrahim sits twelfth in the championship standings after four rounds of the 20-round series.

The next event is May 20–22 at the Autódromo Internacional in Curitiba, Brazil.
