Car­lin signs da Costa for Ma­cau as past win­ners star on en­try list

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

An­to­nio Felix da Costa has be­come the third Ma­cau Grand Prix win­ner to be added to next month’s line-up after agree­ing to join Car­lin.

The Por­tuguese racer last won Ma­cau in 2012 when run­ning with the Bri­tish squad. Da Costa, who races in For­mula E, joins 2014 and ’15 win­ner Felix Rosen­qvist and 2011 vic­tor Daniel Jun­cadella on the en­try list for the Novem­ber 17-20 event.

“Ma­cau is a spe­cial prize – it’s just pure driv­ing,” said da Costa, who will part­ner Ser­gio Sette Ca­mara and Bri­tons Jake Hughes and Lando Nor­ris at Car­lin. “The adren­a­line rush be­tween those walls is a feel­ing you don’t get any­where else.

“There is no aim for me go­ing back; I’m just do­ing it for the love of the sport, so when I got the call from Trevor [Car­lin] a few weeks back I couldn’t say no.

“There will be a few fel­low Ma­cau win­ners go­ing back as well as a lot of young up-and­com­ing guys too, so it will be a fun week­end and I’m look­ing for­ward to go­ing back with the guys in blue [Car­lin].”
