The pilot conimbricense Filipe Albuquerque was unstoppable in the second round of the European Le Mans Series in Spa-Francorchamps. The Portuguese and his teammate Phil Hanson achieved pole position, the fastest lap and victory in the race. A feat that Filipe dedicated with emotion to his father, who died two weeks ago.
These results, in addition to being odd, put the Oreca # 22 duo from United Autosports in charge of the championship, a position that the Portuguese driver was aiming for even before the weekend started: “I couldn't want more. It was an exceptional weekend with all the goals achieved. I am very happy and at the same time melancholic, because my biggest fan, my father, is no longer with me to celebrate this victory. This result is for him, wherever he is ”, said emotionally Filipe Albuquerque.
