With a lot of optimism and high spirits, Brazilian driver Celso Neto arrives in San Francisco, in the American state of California, to start the TC America season. It will be his first full season, since last year he participated in only 4 rounds. It will also be his debut at the famous Skip Barber Racing School, his new team, and to close the weekend of emotions it will be his first time competing at Sonoma Raceway.
There is no lack of reasons and expectations, but the

main highlight for Celso is in his preparation. The driver, who is only 18 years old but has accumulated experience in the most important Brazilian touring championships, dedicated himself to physical, technical and psychological training during the pre-season and has never been so comfortable for this moment.
“Last weekend we did some reconnaissance of the track aboard a Mustang GT, but this will be my first time competing. It’s a very technical and fast track, with a lot of unevenness”, said Celso Neto, who will have in his hands the Honda Skip Barber HPD Civic Type-R with the number 07.
In the weekend’s schedule, the official practices start this Friday (31)
at 9am (local time) in the morning and at 2:25 pm the second and last practice of the day. The qualifying session to set the starting grid will be on Saturday (01) at 8:50 am. The first race is scheduled for the same day, at 11:30 am. The second race will be at 9:55am on Sunday (02).
The races are broadcast live on TC America’s YouTube channel. Celso Neto is sponsored by AMED, Oeste Cotton, Dipromed, Supermed, LS Inter Bank, and Sicoob Credipit.
