Carlo van DamCarlo van Dam today scored two tenth places for PSV in the Superleague Formula-races at the circuit of Estoril in Portugal. Carlo made his debut in the series this weekend and despite his first outing proved challengingly difficult, he looks forward to the remaining rounds.

“Let me first stress that I was pleasantly surprised by the Superleague Formula”, Carlo says. “The series, the cars and the organisation certainly exceeded my expectations. It wasn’t easy, especially since we couldn’t get our car to get around the slower corners properly here. Then, in the first race, the semi-automatic shift system of my car failed several times and I could not shift down, so that cost me a couple of places unfortunately. So we are far from there yet, there is much more speed to find in our car, but this was a good experience and I am enthusiastic.”
