RODOLFO AVILA heads towards Germany

Having finished in the points twice at Anderstorp, Macanese single-seater driver Rodolfo Avila is back to action in this weekend's International Formula Master (IFM) rounds in Oschersleben, Germany.

After scoring his first points in the championship in Sweden, Avila took part in the Series' official test day at Oscherleben. It wasn't a joyful day for the Macanese driver as Cram Competition Asia driver rolled his car during the morning outing when he was the 6th fastest. Avila walked away from the incident without a scratch but was sidelined for most of the day. "In Motorsport accidents can happen when you really drive on the limit to get the maximum out of the car. On the fast three apex corner I lost control off my car and spun towards the grass where the car jumped and reached the gravel sideways. I landed on the gravel and rolled over twice! It was a big one but I am OK. Unfortunately we lost the rest of the day", he said.

Avila wants to offer Macau two good results in Germany but the battle on the 3.667-kilometre circuit at Oschersleben will not be cushy for the 30 IFM competitors.

"I'm convinced that we're well set for Oschersleben. My team-mates were fast there in the test day. Besides that, we've got to improve in the qualifying, because that is the basis for a good race. I'd like to repeat Anderstorp score but it is not going to be easy. We'll see what's possible", said the driver proudly supported by Macau Government, Macau-slot.com, BNU, CESLAsia, PAL AsiaConsult, TsingTao, Fat Siu Lau Restaurant, Sujika Crafts and PT Asia.
