Due to a postponed start imposed by the pandemics, only two competitions of the Madeira motorsports Championship have been accomplished.
The balance between the main drivers has been clear and the competitions have been exciting until their finale, as the leader was only revealed in the last stage of the events.
At the time, behind the wheel of a Citroën C3 Rally2 Evo, Alexandre Camacho was the leader in Ribeira Brava, on the 25th and 26th July, ahead with 1,4 seconds on Miguel Nunes, as he was the leader of Rali do Marítimo, on the 16th and 17th July, by 0,5 seconds.
This balance is also in the championship standings, led by Camacho with 2 points as head start from Nunes.
Getting to know Skoda Fabia Rally2 Evo, Pedro Paixão was racing in defence in his debut competition and lost a lot of time with a tyre puncture just when he started fighting back in Machico. Rui Pinto and Filipe Freitas have been getting similar positions, however, they both withdrew once. That takes José Camacho, stronger with his Peugeot 208 T16, to be next in the fourth position of the competition, followed by Rui Jorge Fernandes, until now unstoppable in his category. With two victories, Américo Gouveia also stands out of RC4 group. After Rali Vinho da Madeira, the rallies missing are Câmara de Lobos/Funchal, Faial – Santana e Calheta.
Standings: 1st Alexandre Camacho, 51; 2nd Miguel Nunes, 49; 3rd Pedro Paixão, 32; 4th José Camacho, 22; 5th Rui Jorge Fernandes, 20; 6th Rui Pinto, 17; 7th Filipe Freitas, 14; 8th Dinarte Baptista, 14; 9th Paulo Mendes, 10; 10th Américo Gouveia, 8; 11th João Ferreira, 8; 12th Carlos Silva, 3; 13th Pedro Macedo, 2; 14th Cláudio Nóbrega, 2; 15th Paulo Nunes, Miguel Caires, Ricardo Gonçalves, Miguel Gouveia, Rodrigo Jasmins and Tiago Neves, 1.
