Celso Neto faces his third race in Touring Car America

After placing third and becoming the first Brazilian to climb the podium in the TC category, Celso Neto faces another challenge in TC America, this weekend (September 23-25 – Friday, Saturday and Sunday) at Sebring in Florida. The goal is to repeat the good results and preferably with another podium finish.

About the track, Sebring is a great challenge because of the many undulations in the asphalt. An old airport base is now a raceway and has most of the track in concrete.

Celso only knows it through a simulator. “Although I live in Florida I never had the opportunity to race at Sebring, I only did a shake down before starting at Watkins Glen. It’s more of a traditional circuit, a 6-kilometer track, very fast and technical, but we are prepared and eager to repeat a positive result for the team,” said the driver.

Sebring is the penultimate round of the season. The last round will be on October 7 and 8, in Indianapolis – Indiana/USA. This is Celso Neto’s first season at TC America. He joined in the middle of the season, when he was hired by the VGRT/Honda HPD team to drive the #8 Honda Civic Type R TC car.
