FWT: Fernando Barrichello Drives Away in Micro Rok

After a stunning performance a day earlier that earned him the victory, Fernando Barichello (OGP/TonyKart), son of Formula 1 ace Rubens, was back at it again on Sunday looking to complete the perfect weekend. He out-paced Columbian Diego Contecha Porras (TonyKart) and Lucas Rodriguez (P1/TonyKart) in Qualifying to start the day off right.

However, in the PreFinal it was Porras who took control en route to a 3.3 second victory over Barrichello with Italian Elio Giovane (AM/Espirit) coming home

But Barrichello took it to Porras in the Final, getting out front early and never looking back. With his father trackside cheering him on and nearly in tears after the finish, Barrichello earned his second victory of the weekend and solidified his championship lead with 5.5 second victory. James Egozi (Birel) came home second as those behind Barrichello raced hard for the podium while Pedro Pizza (TonyKart) was third. Santi Trisini (Birel) was fourth followed by Porras.

More to come on the Barrichello family this week on CKN.
