The Corsican has performed rather well on his debut in TC1 with the Chevrolet RML Cruze of Campos Racing. An accident in FP2 prevented Valente from participating in the qualifying session.
First qualifying session this year for Campos Racing in the World Touring Car Championship and it produced mixed results. John Filippi set a lap of 1:48.507 with his Campos Racing Chevrolet RML Cruze TC1 and took a spot on the seventh row of the grid. Without doubts it was a good result to approach both races taking place tomorrow when the Corsican racer aims to score his first points.
Less positive this Saturday was for Hugo Valente, who missed qualifying session due to an accident in FP1. As a result of losing his brakes, Valente crashed into the barrier and the Chevrolet sustained heavy damage. Now Campos Racing mechanics work to repair the car on time for tomorrow.
