CHICAGO, Illinois – Results from the second weekend of the Dignity Gold GT Sprint Race at
Velocitta in São Paulo, Brazil are in, with Team Stange Racing claiming victory in the
opening race and finishing the day in second place for the overall points championship.
In Sunday’s opening race (race 3 on the overall schedule), Team Stange’s Pedro Costa in the
number 77 Dignity Gold Ford Mustang started in 10th place and immediately charged to the
front of the pack. He went on to finish second in the PRO category but was ultimately
awarded the victory after the initial first place finisher was penalized 20 seconds for
illegally bumping and pushing another car out of the way.
“Motorsport is really impressive, and for me to come from PROAM and now win at PRO is
very rewarding,” said Costa. “We are in an excellent position to compete for the
championship. We can fight for the title, but it will take consistency to ensure that things
stay that way.”
The second race (race 4 overall) was won by Thiago Camilo in car number 21, which was
engineered and maintained by Team Stange Racing. Team Stange’s Pedro Costa sustained a
first lap accident which resulted in the loss of number 77’s front bodywork and hood. Costa,
however, was able to keep the car going and eventually finished 11th.
“It was another successful weekend for Team Stange, Pedro Costa and our number 77 car,”
stated John Stange, Jr., President and CEO of Team Stange Racing. “We are pleased to be in
second overall for the points championship and as we begin to prepare for the third
weekend of the Dignity Gold GT Sprint Race on May 1, we like the momentum we have.
We’ll continue to work hard towards our goal of winning the championship.”
