Thanks to the result scored in Portimao, Tiene will get to the Circuit PFI as third in the championship, all set to climb the ladder.
The quick Spanish driver Pedro Hiltbrand, will also be back on track with CRG in England after being forced out of the first round due to a physical problem, but now he is ready to place himself among the main protagonists of the championship.
