Campos Racing will head to Lisbon for another key moment of the 2023 Eurocup-3 season, whose title hunt is still to go down to the wire with the Spanish-based racing team and their drivers showing strong form in all the previous rounds. The Autódromo do Estoril will host the sixth double-header with another closely-fought battle expected.

Campos Racing will line up their four Tatuus-Alfa Romeo cars for full-season drivers Esteban Masson, Francesco Braschi, Tasanapol Inthraphuvasak and Suleiman Zanfari. After the summer break, the Eurocup-3 resumed in Jerez last weekend with the drivers defending the Campos Racing colors stepping up onto the podium once again.

Despite Masson didn’t have Lady Luck on his side in Southern Spain, the young Frenchman is still first in the standings on 151 points. Masson has scored four wins to date and still has a 7-point lead. Italian Braschi emerged as the first Eurocup-3 race winner ever at Spa-Francorchamps. Following other three podium finishes, Braschi fought back in Jerez to clinch his second triumph in the series. Ahead of Estoril, Braschi is fourth in the drivers’ classification on 114 points.

Inthraphuvasak experienced a positive last weekend as the Thai driver finished 3rd on Sunday. Inthraphuvasak had achieved his maiden podium in the series at Zandvoort and just bad luck prevented him from winning at Motorland Aragón, as he was leading the field before retiring from the race 1 with technical issues. Morocco´s Zanfari is second in the rookie standings on 148 points. Zanfari finished third overall in the Belgian Ardennes and he should be taken into consideration for Estoril.

Campos Racing occupies first place in the teams’ standings on 314 points.

The Autódromo do Estoril was built in 1972 with a length of 4.182 km. It remains as one of the best motorsport facilities in Portugal, besides it’s very well appreciated by drivers and fans due to its old fashion spirit. Changeable weather is another classic characteristic of Estoril, because of its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. That’s way rain isn’t strange in autumn.

The schedule includes two test sessions of 40 minutes each on Saturday morning. In the afternoon, Q1 will take place at 15:15 and Race 1 is set to start at 17:50. Q2 is scheduled on Sunday morning at 10:30 and Race 2 will bring the curtain down on the weekend at 13:45. Both races will consist of 30 minutes plus one lap each and will be streamed live on YouTube.

Adrián Campos (Campos Racing Team Principal): “The all-new Eurocup-3 series is showing how competitive and closely-fought is. You can’t relax a single moment and we will give our 200% at Estoril. We are still leading both drivers’ and teams’ standings and we will try to strengthen our leads in Portugal. It’s going to be important not to make a single mistake and bring a solid points-haul home.”

Francesco Braschi (Campos Racing Driver of Eurocup-3): “After such a good weekend in Jerez, I’m really looking forward to repeating it in Estoril.”
