Pedro Almeida flew the Portuguese flag in style on the recent Rally Fafe Montelongo by earning his maiden podium in the Pirelli-supported FIA ERC3 Junior Championship.
Co-driven by Fafe resident Hugo Magalhães, Almeida finished third in the young driver category driving a Peugeot 208 Rally4 for The Racing Factory.
“It was a very difficult rally for me but I learned a lot and I am happy with this podium,” said Almeida. “The weather was very unstable and it was hard to make a decision for the tyres. But were improving and making good decisions. We were on a good way to be faster.”
