Brazil World Rally Team prepares for Rally de Portugal

Brazil World Rally Team
Brazil World Rally Team and driver Daniel Oliveira prepare for the WRC Rally de Portugal.  The rally begins today and runs through March 27th.

Daniel Oliveira plans to use today’s shakedown for Vodafone Rally de Portugal to continue adapting to his MINI John Cooper Works Super 2000 that he will use in competition for the first time on the world championship event this week.

The 25-year-old sampled his Brazil World Rally Team-run MINI on gravel during a short test on Monday. He now plans to make the most of the shakedown session at Vale de Judeu, which gets underway at 1430hrs local time, to increase his knowledge of the car over the 5.03-kilometre gravel course.
