The Autoworks Motorsport outfit won gold in the TC class of both the Iberian Supercars Endurance and Portuguese Speed Championships
The Spain-based Autoworks Motorsport team, backed by EBC Frenos España (EBC Brakes Spain), is currently creating waves in the Iberian Peninsula thanks to a string of impressive results.
Competing in the TC class of both the Iberian Supercars Endurance and Portuguese Speed Championships, the team is comprised of talented drivers Héctor Hernández and Borja Hormigos and uses a BMW M240i race car proudly sporting EBC Brakes Racing’s RP-X™ track motorsport brake pads.
With the final round of both series recently descending onto Portugal’s Circuito do Estoril, the team once again pulled out a thrilling performance to ensure well-earned victories in both respective series.
You can read how the weekend unfolded in the team’s own words below.
“After two victories this weekend at Estoril, Héctor Hernández and Borja Hormigos have been proclaimed champions of the TC category of the Iberian Supercars Endurance and the Portuguese Speed Championship, at the wheel of their BMW M240i Racing, with the assistance of Autoworks Motorsport and the main sponsorship of EBC Frenos España.
“The Iberian Supercars Endurance 2023 (gt4southeuropean.com) reached its final round in Estoril with all the titles to be decided, a fact that was reflected in the large number of people who came to the circuit throughout the weekend.”
“Friday was devoted entirely to free practice, which Héctor and Borja took advantage of to memorise a track they had never raced on before. Saturday’s programme concentrated all the action in the official practice sessions, in which both Borja and Héctor took first place in the TC division, qualifying ahead of other drivers with more powerful cars from higher categories. In the two races that completed the Sunday schedule, the team achieved two division victories.
“The entire team’s worth was put to the test with seamless mechanical reliability, great on-track pace with no mistakes and precise driver changeover stops, which were undoubtedly key to, not only in this race, the deciding factor in being consistent throughout the season.”
“The points obtained for this double victory have allowed the team to win the title of both championships in the TC category (both in Iberian Supercars Endurance and the Portuguese Speed Championship) in their first year of participation in the most prestigious touring car competition in the Iberian Peninsula.
“Héctor and Borja declared in the press conference after the podium: “We are very satisfied because, apart from the learning that we have taken with us, we have been able to materialize in the form of titles all the work that the team has done during the whole season, in a championship with a very high level”. “
