ASES

On the Road to Batalha

É já no próximo fim-de-semana que se realizam as 24 Horas da Batalha que vão na sua 19ª edição.

Apesar de os ASES nunca terem participado nesta prova como equipa, sempre se fizeram representar por equipas digamos que "oficiais" ou dito de outra forma, onde a maioria dos pilotos fazem parte dos quadros do troféu ASES PELOS ARES.

Assim foi com J.Soares Correia, com a Vertente Confecções, com a KIVI-Kart Indoor de Viana, com a GoBulling e agora mais recentemente com a PS&A - Sociedade de Advogados.

As 24 Horas da Batalha, são o expoente máximo das provas de resistência para empresas em Portugal. São ao mesmo tempo uma prova única em termos de festa do kart, mas principalmente em termos de ambiente competitivo, onde o mais normal e natural é estarem presente a esmagadora maioria dos melhores pilotos de kart do género, equipas estrangeiras habituadas a este tipo de provas, bem como também os melhores em termos de provas do kart federado. Aqui não há lugar a vedetas ou pessoas mais ou menos mediáticas da vida social portuguesa. Quem vem, vem com um único objectivo: A vitória!

É uma prova muito competitiva e difícil e os ASES já estiveram várias vezes na luta, mas por alguma razão, nunca a venceram. É normal dizer-se que para quem luta pelo "Top Ten", é um sprint de 24 horas!

Este tipo de provas têm caracteristicas muito próprias. É preciso rapidez, mas principalmente é necessária muita consistência e muita concentração na gestão de boxe.

A PS&A é uma equipa que surgiu em 2011 e desde então tem vindo a crescer e a ganhar experiência.

A prova disso são os 37 pódios, 20 dos quais no lugar mais alto! É uma boa "sala de troféus", mas falta uma coisa - uma vitória na mais importante - as 24 HORAS DA BATALHA.

Na última presença nesta mítica prova (em 2013), a PS&A chegou a incomodar, pois na manhã de Domingo ocupava o terceiro lugar, mas depois veio o cansaço e consequentemente os erros. Acabou por cair para o sexto lugar, o seu melhor resultado, que é também o melhor resultado dos ASES nesta prova.

Este ano a PS&A voltou a convidar alguns ASES, juntou elementos de outras proveniências e formou uma equipa muito arranjadinha para o ataque ao melhor lugar possível que é aquele com toda a equipa sonha - a vitória!

A vitória é um sonho antigo e sempre presente na mente de todos os elementos, mas todos sabemos que vencer significa reunir um conjunto enorme de factores e variáveis, alguns que não dependem diretamente do nosso desempenho. Uma coisa é certa, estamos preparados, estamos bem preparados e vamos lutar pelo sonho.

RUI "The Rukyman" ALMEIDA representa a nova geração dos ASES. Fez parte da equipa em 2013.

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

RUI MIRANDA o pluri-campeão dos Cavaleiros do Asfalto estreia-se na equipa em 2015

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

 

 

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

PEDRO SOUSA faz parte da equipa desde a sua origem e é a grande revelação do troféu dos ASES 2015

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

JOÃO BRITES é o primeiro de três elementos que não participa no troféu dos ASES, mas é seguramente uma mais-valia da equipa, já que se trata do segundo elemento que já venceu as 24 horas!

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

JOÃO BRANDÃO faz parte dos "quadros" da PS&A desde finais de 2013 mas esta presença na prova, será uma estreia.

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

 

 

 

 

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

LUÍS CORTE-REAL juntamente com João Brandão, são os elementos mais novos da equipa. Também esta presença marcará a sua estreia na prova.

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        

                                                                                                         

                                                                                                        

                                                                                             

                                                                                                    

                                                                                                      

TIAGO SOUSA é o último elemento da equipa. Uma lesão num joelho no início do ano afastou-o da possibilidade de conduzir para a equipa que representou em 2013.

Ainda assim, Sousa terá uma participação fundamental nesta equipa fazendo a coordenação e gestão de boxe da equipa.
