The first round of the Brazilian on-road nitro nationals was dominated by Team Shepherd Brazil with victories in all three classes. Additionally more than 70% of the attending drivers were using a Velox V10 - an impressive result of the hard work of Brazilian driver and distributor Eduardo Dulac who provided a tent and seats for all attending Shepherd drivers.
In the "Masters" category it was current Touring B champion Luciano Aquino who crossed the finishing line in first position. He was joined on the podium by his new team-mate Edson Lima in third position who changed to Shepherd in late 2011.
In the "Touring B" categorie Evandro Rocchie took the victory for Team Shepherd finishing 5 laps over the second placed driver while in the "Touring A" category it was Shepherd driver Gabriel Brito finishing 5 laps in front of second placed driver with Shepherd team mate Vitor Ohta competing the podium.
