Gabriel Browne wins 2009 Fortaleza Formula Grand Prix

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 (ITA-4) all but evaporated with a disastrous first race on the final morning, when he finished 10th. It was a race that Gabriel Browne (BRA-50) led from start to finish. It would take a minor miracle in race 15 for Alberto to regain the overall lead – a reversal of positions in the previous race would do it! Alberto led at the start – and ‘Biel’ was down the fleet ; however the young Brazilian 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 consistent performance from Steve Allen (AUS0) and a third place in the final race ensured he took the final place on the podium.
