Matech Ford GTs amass victories at Curitiba, Sao Paulo et Brasilia !

19.06.2008: Matech Ford GTs amass victories at Curitiba, Sao Paulo et Brasilia !

Brasil GT3 Championship

As well as dominating the FIA GT3 European championship, together with victories clinched in the German ADAC GT Masters and not forgetting the two successes in the British GT Championship, the Ford GTs straight out of the Swiss Matech team’s workshops are also competing this season in the Telefonica Speedy Brasil GT3 Championship, an organisation of the Latin American branch of SRO. And the least one can say is that these splendid power beasts just cannot stop gathering the spoils of victory...

Right from the start of the competition, held in April at the Curitiba circuit, the former F1 driver Ricardo Rosset together with the film director Walter Salles Jr set the tone ending the first round in 2nd place, prior to producing a splendid victory the following day with the Ford GT #12 immediately showing the extent of its potential. This performance was fully confirmed at the Sao Paulo track in mid-May with a further victory for Rosset and Salles Jr, enough for these two drivers to quite plainly clearly claim the laurels...

Last weekend, for the third round of the Brazilian championship at the Brasilia circuit, a second Ford GT put in an appearance. Having initially started the competition racing a Dodge, Xandy Negrao and Andreas Mattheis promptly decided to opt for the car built and developed by Matech. A Ford GT that would definitely not go unnoticed thanks notably to its highly attractive livery.

It did not take long for this change of drive to prove successful. If on the one hand Rosset and Salles Jr were unlucky and forced to retire, Negrao and Mattheis on the other and at the wheel of the GT had an impressive race, winning the first ahead of a Porsche and a Dodge!

The following day the Ford GTs put on a real exhibition, ending the first double of the season with Ricardo Rosset and Walter Salles Jr taking the chequered flag ahead of Xandy Negrao and Andreas Mattheis ! With no less than four victories under their belts, the Fords are quite obviously in the lead of this Brazilian competition, with Negrao and Mattheis topping the rankings with 44 points, closely followed by Rosset and Salles Jr on 38 points.

"I’m really delighted with these results, especially regarding the second Ford GT, only freshly delivered two weeks before the race ", Martin Bartek, the owner of Matech Concepts, commented. "This quite clearly proves the high degree of precision and reliability shown by our team. Without a single doubt the Ford GT Matech has reached the level of a turn-key product, both reliable and highly performing..."

The following round of the Telefonica Speedy Brasil GT3 Championship will take place on 12th and 13th July at the Sao Paulo circuit, where the Ford GTs will make a point of further emphasising their domination in this first Brazilian competition based on GT3 regulations.
