Thomas Biagi is enthusiastic ahead of the challenge offered by the Portimao circuit, which hosts the third round of the International Superstars Series season this weekend.

“I believe that Portimao, together with Spa and Mugello is one of the nicest circuits in Europe: all of them have up and downhills and important driven sectors where the driver can make a difference,” said Biagi.

Reigning champion Biagi sits fifth in the standings ahead of the trip to Portugal, where he bagged his maiden pole position in Superstars last year.

He will hope for a good result as his Team BMW Italia M3 lines up without any success ballast, unlike the cars of some of his title rivals.

Biagi has spent the last two weeks since the round at Valencia preparing to get himself in the best possible position for the coming races, both in terms of his physical condition and circuit knowledge.

“In the last two weeks I put great care in my athletic preparation that is becoming more and more important as hottest months of the year are approaching.

“Also, my role of coach of the drivers preparing the race at the simulator of Grid GP gave me the chance to revise in advance the crucial points of the circuit.”
