After fifth place in the A category in the opening of the season, the Paulista wants to climb even higher in the standings
On April 24 and 26, F3 Brazil will accelerate again in the Velopark / RS circuit for the second stage of the category. It was almost two months into the gap since its opening, but the period was a lot of work for pilots and teams.
For the São Paulo Fernando Croce this interval served to work even more in the physical preparation and also work with the team from Paraná Hitech Racing.
The rider participated in a training day earlier this month on the gaucho circuit and believes that the tests served for some adjustments in his single seat. “The training was reasonable. In the morning we went well, but in the afternoon we had some problems and could not pass new tires, as we had planned. We work in the car with worn tires, where with the deteriorated compound you can not find a good setup for the car. Because of that, it was not what I expected, but we managed to do some tests and adjustments, which will serve as a starting point for training, “explained the Jaú rider.
Croce stresses that he expects a weekend of evolution already in the first laps and that this gives him a good result in the definition of the grid and in both races. “As for the race I expect a constant evolution from the first training sessions and that this becomes a good result in both races,” he concluded.
The double round of F3 Brazil begins its schedule on Friday, with the first training at 09:50 and the second training at 2:25 pm. On Saturday, the category enters the track for the definition of the starting grid at 10:20, with the first race scheduled for 15.25. The complimentary race takes place on Sunday at 8:45 am. The program also includes the 3rd stage of Stock Car, the 2nd stage of F3 Brazil and the 2nd stage of the Brazilian Tour.
