Macau mission accomplished for Avila

54th Macau F3 Grand Prix race was mission accomplished for Macanese racing driver's Rodolfo Avila who finished 19th and the best of the five Macanese F3 drivers.

After a slight crash on Thursday Free Practice 1 Avila decided to not take unnecessary risks. In the Saturday's Qualifying Race Avila started from 26th to climb nine positions during the 10 laps around the famous Guia Circuit. "The weekend didn't start brightly for me but we worked hard to get better. I didn't want to take risks in the first weekend race so I kept my pace, and I controlled my advantage to the other Macanese drivers", held the #28 HBR Motorsport driver.

On Sunday the 20 year-old Macanese driver challenged the front runners at the start and finished the weekend top local driver. Commenting on Macau GP's adventure, Rodolfo Avila said: "I did a very good start, and I was 9th at some point but then I decided to not interfere with top-runners fight. That wasn't my war. I settle on my objectives, and I kept my head cooler. When I saw I had a comfortable advantage to the other Macanese opponents I slowed down a bit. I learned an awful lot out there today and it will only help me for future".

The Macau SAR international motorsport ambassador is looking forward next season "At the moment I don't know what is going to happen next season. I have several proposals from several championships but we have to speak with our sponsors before. I owe a great deal of thanks to Macau Government, Macau-slot.com, BNU, CESLAsia, PAL AsiaConsult, TsingTao Beer, Fat Siu Lau Restaurant, Sujika Crafts, PT Asia and Chubb, and to every Macanese who supported me during the season 2007".

Season 2008... Coming soon...
