The programme for the Estoril Season Finale, an event with the support of NAPA, the world's leading automotive spare parts brand, has been unveiled. This event will decide this year's titles for the Iberian Supercars Endurance and the Campeonato de Portugal de Velocidade on November 24th to 26th.
The success of the Race Ready-organized competitions this season has attracted NAPA, which will sponsor the end-of-season event as part of the grand celebration of the 2023 champions. NAPA has extensive experience in circuit racing, as it has its own team in NASCAR, as well as numerous rally supported teams in various European countries.
The American company was founded in 1925 with a simple goal: to meet customer needs with quality automotive spare parts through a strong and reliable distribution network.
Today, NAPA dominates the North American automotive industry as a beloved and respected brand. Now it enters the Portuguese market, creating a new and bright opportunity through its proven methods in the United States.
For Hugo Tavares, the General Manager of NAPA in Portugal, said: “The connection with Iberian Supercars Endurance/Campeonato de Portugal de Velocidade is nothing more than a logical step, reflecting what our brand represents in the world. We combine the car and industrial vehicle spare parts business (worth more than 23 billion dollars) with a passion for competition. American NASCAR is our main thing, but racing, in general, is our travel companion.”
Diogo Ferrão, the CEOof Race Ready, added: "It has been a fantastic year, with grids featuring many cars of a very high quality, ensuring close and thrilling races in all categories and divisions. The Estoril Season Finale will be the event of all decisions, and it's a pleasure to welcome NAPA. Like our competitions, NAPA emphasizes the efficiency and performance of its products, making it a perfect match between the two parties. The entire organization, drivers, teams, partners, and of course, the fans eagerly anticipate the races at the Autódromo do Estoril, expecting excitement right up to the finish line.”
The Estoril Season Finale by NAPA officially begins on Friday, November 24th, with the free practice sessions. Qualifying is scheduled for Saturday, while the decisive races will take place on Sunday. The first race starts at 9:40am (local time), and the second at 2:35pm.
