El Brazilian Stock Car, who disputes the second date of his tournament this weekend in Interlagos, will have a luxury protagonist: the Portuguese Antonio Felix Da Costa, current champion of the Formula E.
The arrival of Da Costa to the specialty is produced by a special situation: he was summoned by the team Eurofarma Team to replace the Brazilian Ricardo Mauricio, who tested positive for coronavirus.
“For me, it is an honor and a responsibility to represent Ricardo Mauricio and the Eurofarma Team on this date. I know that we are going to race against the clock and that the car is different from the ones I have already driven in the series, but we will do a very focused job ”, said Da Costa, who has just won the Monaco E-Prix.
It will be the fifth participation of the Portuguese in the Stock Car as he has raced as a guest in two-driver competitions in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. In his latest experience he finished third in the famous Million Race.
“Everyone knows my love for Brazil and for this series, so I am very happy to be back. I don't like the reason, but that doesn't make this moment any less special. Ricardo is one of the monsters of Brazilian motorsport and he entrusts me with this mission, and I will do everything possible to represent him ”, culminated.
Da Costa will have among his rivals Matias Rossi, who was able to travel to be present in this commitment after his absence on the first date of the contest in Goiania.
