Alvaro Parente Feature at Speed Sport Magazine and Online

PRINT PIRELLI WORLD CHALLENGE STAFF November 9, 2016GT Class, Series News

Alvaro Parente had very little experience racing in the United States when he joined K-PAX Racing for the Pirelli World Challenge season. SPEED SPORT Magazine told of Parente’s unlikely rise to a championship in its November issue. Here’s an excerpt from that story.

The first-year PWC GT racer had shown the talent that everyone had seen in February, producing a series-best six wins and five poles.

Parente was a basic unknown in America in February and now stands as the GT drivers’ champion in North America’s top production-based sports car series.

“When the season kicked off, I said to my guys from race one that I’m here to fight for the championship,” he admitted. “Then we found ourselves in a good position and started to win races and really getting a look at the championship. It was very good until the Utah weekend where, unfortunately, Michael Cooper took me out of the first race where I was in position two.”
