Atlantic Motorsport´s “Team Boss” took advantage of the experience to capitalize on the first stage of the FPAK eSports Sprint Championship, held last wednesday at Silverstone iRacing.
Competing in Division 8, the Porto native started the race well with the 6th time in the qualifying.
The prospect of a bad result loomed again at the start of Race 1 (25 minutes), with the driver wasting some time with a gearbox reluctant to shift into first gear.
With the problem resolved, Mário Rocha was cautious, prioritizing the conclusion of the race, which he achieved and in 8th place.
In Race 2, the story was quite different. Mário Rocha took advantage of his experience to be able to impose a large part of the competition in the 40-minutes race.
His effort allowed him to reach the middle step of the podium.
In the championship standing, Mário Rocha is in 5th place with 61 points.
