It’s today: our city of birth (Vila Real) will be filled with noise and joy for the 47th edition of the Vila Real International Circuit. National and international pilots, fantastic cars and lots of enthusiasts will bring a new dynamic to the city. As usual, one of the best spots to watch the races will be on the bench that is set just in front of NRV Norvia headquarters.
NRV | Norvia will be supporting the pilot Manuel Pedro Fernandes that this year, for the first time ever, will run on the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC). Tiago Monteiro, Portuguese professional pilot, will also be here, after the memorable presence of last year, when he won the WTCC race. The presentation of the pilots is today (23rd) but the races will be held on Saturday and Sunday. This edition will have some surprises, such as the joker lap, introduced by FIA (Federation Internationale de l’Automobile) – it basically consists on slightly changing the circuit to create a lap with an additional chicane, bringing more excitement to the race.
