The first weekend of the ACCELERATION 2014 championship was a success: a total of 33 cars appeared on the starting grid in Portimão, Portugal.
Loek Bodelier, CEO of ACCELERATION 2014 says: “We are able to look back to a successful sportive weekend. There was a good atmosphere and it is nice to see that we finally started the series after two years of preparation. The event is there, now I hope we can grow. There are things to improve, but luckily we have a lot of talented people with us.”
Both FA1 races were won by Mirko Bortolotti, the driver of the Italian car:
“It’s a competitive field with experienced drivers. It makes me happy to see the series has got potential. It has been a great weekend for us, actually a perfect one. Two wins, two fastest laps, and two pole positions, so I’m quite happy with the result. If I get the chance again, I will try to do the best again and I’m looking forward to the future. The championship has started on the right foot, the cars are massive and the tracks we are going to also, so for it being the first round I’m absolutely delighted with everything.”
