Josemar Jr. takes third place among the sporting challenge races, in the final of the second stage of the 2022 Porsche Cup ‘O Regional’

The Khalil driver drove the entire race until he lost his positions on the last lap. Overall in this category, it came in ninth place. After the final race, the Pernambuco native finished fourth in the championship standings in his group. The next appointment will be in June, at Interlagos (SP).

Muji Gwasu (SP) – Josemar Jr., from Hebron/Energicline One of the good surprises was in the last race of the 18th Porsche Cup C6 Bank Mastercard, which took place on Sunday (24th), at Autodromo Veluceta, in Muji Gwasso (SP). The Pernambuco native, at the start of the Sprint Challenge, started from the eighth row of the grid, in sixteenth place, overtaking six cars, and remaining, until the last round of the race, in the leadership of the Sport class and in the seventh position in the General class. That’s when the confusion behind him made him miss track layout, losing two places, coming in ninth overall and third in his league, just over a second behind the winner. The Porsche driver 991.2 (#77) finished 16 laps of the 3,438-meter track in 27:30 sec 726, setting his fourth lap best time of 1:33 sec 406.

“It was a good, busy race. I was at a good pace, but the safety car came in a bit to interfere with the race pace, affect strategy and drive. But I was able to focus and start well. I was on the start until the last lap, when someone jumped out from behind and pulled over to avoid the collision. That’s part of the controversy and that’s okay. I’m happy with the third place with the points I got and the ranking I got in my league. Now is the time to focus and prepare for the next challenge in June,” says Josemar, who is now 14th. in the overall classification among the Sprint Challenge cars and fourth place in the Sport category.

The next dispute for the 18th Porsche C6 Bank Mastercard Cup will take place between 10 and 12 June, at the Jose Carlos Pace International Circuit, in Interlagos, in the capital, Paulista. Competition races are broadcast live by the band, with exhibitions of the best moments on the same day by Sportv, as well as ‘live’ on the category’s official channels on social networks and broadcast platforms.
