Round four of the Brazilian Championship took place at the Fama track over the weekend. With one individual race for each category plus a combined Elite race which counts towards its own championship, there was some good quality action.
In MX1, Portugal’s Paulo Alberto, fresh off the back of dominating the racing in his home country in recent weeks, took his second MX1 race victory in a row. As well as this he took the win in the Elite race too making it a good weekend for the Yamaha man. Peru’s Jetro Salazar was the runner-up in the MX1 race with championship leader Carlos Campano third. With this, Alberto has now cut the Spaniards lead to just three points, with Salazar in touch nine points further behind. Campano was the second MX1 rider home in the Elite race ahead of Hector Assuncao and Salazar. Alberto now sits at the head of the Elite classification, one point ahead of Campano, four ahead of Assuncao and five ahead of Salazar! Anything could happen there…
It was a good day for Fabio Santos in MX2 as he took the individual race honours, as well as being the top MX2 rider in the Elite race with fifth place. Lucas Dunka and Frederico Spagnol shared the remaining top-3 positions to complete the podium. Santos has a 16 point lead over Spagnol leaving Fama with Leonardo De Souza sitting third 31 points off the lead. Santos continues to be the top 250 rider in the Elite championship, sitting in fifth place overall.
