Alvaro Parente will defend Futebol Clube do Porto colours in this year Superleague Formula by Sonangol season, a championship that has been gathering competitiveness and where he has already won.
The young gun from Oporto quality didn't escape to the biggest club of his hometown as he gave it a win in the second race of the Estoril round of the last year's championship, the only weekend in which he took part.
Knowing that could succeed with Alvaro Parente, Futebol Clube do Porto invited him to drive its car in this year Superleague Formula by Sonangol season, something that makes him very proud. "As a fan, it's a great honour for me to be able to defend my club colours in this championship. Last year I could understand at Estoril the competitiveness that these series already has and I could feel the support from the fans, which was great. The car is different from the GP2 car, but it's very interesting to drive and it's a singleseater, which is good to keep me sharp", said the driver who won the Formula 3 British Championship 2005 and the World Series by Renault 2007.
As is expected in a driver of his talent, his goals are ambitious and Alvaro Parente looks to Superleague Formula by Sonangol as way to improve his C.V.. The Portuguese driver knows that he will have in Reid Motorsport - an Atech Grand Prix arm - a strong technical department, a team that was impressed by him since the Estoril weekend. "When I get in a competition, my goal is to win. I know it won't be easy, as there will be on track very good drivers. However, I think with effort and work, and with the team's help, we can fight for the top position in each race and, hopefully, for the championship", underlined the Portuguese driver.
The Superleague Formula by Sonagol season will start at April 3rd and 4th, at Silverstone, will have twelve rounds and the ninth will be held at Autodromo Internacional do Algarve at September 18th and 19th.
