A few hours to double session of races in the circuit of Portimao. Draco Team is preparing to decide the championship!

An unusual program decided for the seventh meeting of the World Series by Renault in the Portuguese circuit of Portimao, where there are no other Renault categories to give space to the famous Le Mans Series.

The first session of free practice for Formula 3.5's drivers was held Thursday afternoon to start to learn the track, where Bertrand Baguette, the championship leader, has made a time of 1'34"728, placing sixth. The next morning, the Belgian immediately reduces his fast lap in 1'32"808, preparing for the Qualifying. In this meeting, however, Superpole is not present and there were only two sessions of qualifying in Group A and B . Baguette, being the first group, was unable to exploit the best conditions of track, and he has placed 3rd in his group, so 6th in the combined league. The disqualification in the late evening for the Fortec driver, Fairuz Fauzy, who had made the second time, allowed to make the Draco Driver in 5th position. Marco Barba 10th.

In starting grid for Race 1, since the overthrow of the first 8, Bertrand Baguette starts 4th, in the second row. Knowing the wonderful springs of the Belgian in the excited momento of the start, it seems a really exciting race!

With regard to his closest rival in the championship, Martinez and Walker, both start from the rear. At 12.07 (13.07 Italian time) the red traffic lights will go out to kick start the first of the two races in the afternoon. The second, after a few hours, at 16:30, will severely test the 24 drivers of the World Series in the warm Portuguese lands.
