Rodolfo AvilaAfter a remarkable exhibition in the streets of Pau, Macanese racing driver Rodolfo Avila is ready for a tough weekend at Czech Republic’s Autodrom in Brno which will feature both the fifth and sixth race of the International Formula Master (IFM).

At 5.403km long, the East Europe circuit is one of the longest tracks on this year’s IFM calendar, with only Monza able to claim a longer lap. All the drivers will have to exploit the superb chassis of the Formula S2000 and push extra hard in the 15 corners to ensure a good lap time. Macanese motorsport ambassador wants to score his first points of the year.

“I heard the circuit is all about quick corners; it’s a very big track, quite wide and demanding for a driver. The previous experiences will be very important but I hope my total inexperience in the circuit will not affect me too much”, held the driver sponsored by Macau Government,, BNU, CESLAsia, PAL AsiaConsult, TsingTao, Fat Siu Lau Restaurant, Sujika Crafts and PT Asia.

“We expect to fare equally well at the Brno as we did on the Pau. I really want to lap on the front but I know it isn’t easy. I’ve already witnessed many times in the IFM how vitally important it is to get a good result in qualifying”, said Avila.

A weekend layoff since the disappointing weekend in France gave the Macau SAR sportsman a chance to visit DTM Paddock in Brands Hatch, England, as Audi Sport guest. Four days before, Avila was interviewed by the British leading music TV channel MTV UK. This was a significant opportunity to increase the international TV exposure of Avila’s 2007 sponsors.
