PODIUM FOR TOMAS ENGSTROM IN ESTORIL; LVOV WINS SUPERPRODUCTION
The ETC Cup 2006 took place in Portugal at the Estoril's track "Fernanda Pires Da Silva".
It was an amazing week-end for JAS Motorsport customers: Tomas Engstrom; the swedish driver took the third position in the combined classification at the wheel of his JAS-made Honda Accord super 2000, while Alexander Lvov from Russia won the Super Production with a Honda Civic Type R
The brilliant result of Tomas was achieved in spite of a disappointing qualifying session, when Tomas could get only the 8th position on the grid because of trafic problems while he was flying to a well deserved position in the top three.
On sunday morning the heavy rain shuffle cards on table and in race 1 Engstrom claims the 6th position reducing lap by lap the gap between his Honda Accord Euro R and the two bmw of Zanardi and Porteiro.
In race 2 Tomas started from the 2nd row;he need just a few corners to come into the lead, remaining for 6 laps,then controlling the race to claim the third position.
The combination of the results scored in the two races allowed Engstrom, race-engineered in this occasion like in all the STCC 2006 by Mads Fischer of JAS Motorsport, to achieve the third position in the FIA ETC 2006.
Great result for Honda and JAS in SUPERPRODUCTION with the russian driver Alexander Lvov of Golden Motors which won his class with an Honda Civic Type R broadly equipped by JAS components and masterly serviced by Hartmann Racing, another faithful partner of JAS Motorsport.
