The last round of the Sudam F-3 championship in 1999 was held in Interlagos, this sunday.
The first row was with the Amir Nasr Team, with Rodrigo Sperafico on pole-position and Vitor Meira second.
At the start, Meira overtook Sperafico and Uva took his chance and jumped just behind Meira.
At the 3rd lap, Meira and Uva crashed at the end of the straight and Mello Jr. took the lead. Mello needed to arrive in front of Rodrigo if he wanted to finish 2nd in the Championship and that was what he did.
The fight for third place was great between Ricardo Sperafico and Leonardo Nienkotter.
Hoover Orsi finished a distant 5th place.
