With 2 races on the final day of the Fortaleza Grand Prix it was all to play for.
The overnight lead held by Alberto Menegatti (ITA4) all but evaporated with a disastrous first race this morning, when he finished 10th.
It was a race that Gabriel Browne (BRA50) led from start to finish.
It would take a minor miracle in race 15 for Alberto to regain the overall lead - a reversal of the positions in the previous race would do it!
Alberto led at the start - and "Biel" was down the fleet ; however the young Brasilian fought back to take first place on the last leg of the race. What a finish.
Alberto had to be content with second place in the race and second overall in the event.
A consistant performance from Steve Allen (AUS0) and a third place in the final race ensured he had final place on the podium.
An exciting finale to a fantastic Grand Prix which formula enthusiasts could follow live thanks to coverage on TV Uniao.
