Parkalgar Racing Team finishes in fifth position at Donington

This weekend the Parkalgar Racing Team had an excellent performance in Donington, thanks to Simone Sanna, positioned in second place in the initial line-up and who finished the race in fifth position, thus garnering the first points for the Algarvian team. Miguel Praia experienced difficulties over the weekend but notwithstanding this fact he clocked up 20th position in the race and achieved the 12th fastest lap in the event.

At the end of the weekend, the members of the Parkalgar team (responsible for the future Algarve International Circuit), expressed their satisfaction and optimism for the future: "We needed a result like this to bring a spirit of confidence back to the team. The result was fruit of everyone's hard work. The team did its very best during the weekend and provided me with a far more competitive bike than in previous races", stated the Italian driver, Simone Sanna.

"I strove to succeed throughout the race and I'm very happy with the result. My sights are now set on the next race in Valencia", stated Sanna.

Miguel Praia was positioned in 31st place on the grid and knew that he had a tough race ahead of him: "My main goal was to move up during the race. I did so at the best possible rhythm. The race was interrupted due to a great deal of oil on the track, but even so I gradually managed to move up positions", he stated.

"I'd obviously preferred to have finished with a ranking that generated points for the team, but I think after this race we can harbour hopes for the forthcoming events. I'd like to convey my congratulations to Simone for his excellent work over the weekend", said Praia.
