At the end of the Kristianstad race in Sweden, Gabriel Bortoleto completes the season with an excellent third place.

An all-round convincing weekend for the CRG driver; able at better interpreting the variable weather conditions, Bortoleto was able to finalize the last stage of the CIK FIA season in the best possible way.

The fourteenth absolute spot in qualifying, second for group G, boded well for the qualifying heats. In the storm on Saturday, Bortoleto closed with three second places, a fifth place and a victory. A great result, sanctioned by the second position in the last direct clash on Sunday.

At the end of the combined classification, fourth place on the starting grid for the Brazilian. A much-fought final, he saw himself dangerously losing positions after the first few beats, but consistency and race pace then returned Bortoleto into the fight for victory and firmly on the podium. A third place finish that launches the CRG standard bearer among the best in the category, counting also the third place overall in the European Championship.

"I was hoping for victory but I'm very happy. We worked well and all the material was great, both on dry and wet track. I'm happy to have finished the last race of the OKJ season like this. I thank all the team and the people who support me."

Appointment to the season's next races.
