Baumgart and Andreotti awarded with the Golden Helmet
Cristian Baumgart and Beco Andreotti were awarded, for the fifth time, with the Golden Helmet, an equivalent of the “Oscars” for Brazilian motorsport. The three-time Sertões champions were the most voted by the press and received the trophy last Monday in São Paulo. X Rally Team duo Marcos Baumgart and Kleber Cincea were also among the three finalists.
“It is a recognition of all the work we have been doing in the long-term”, states Cristian. “It is an honour to win this award once again and it show the passion, dedication and professionalism of the whole team”, he said. “We are very thankfull for that and we aim to keep working and improving”, Beco told.
Baumgart and Andreotti will wear their race suits and helmets once again this weekend for the season finale of the Mitsubishi Cup, a Cross Country Rally in which they were crowned champions three times. It is their first appearance in the series after five years, and they will race the Mitsubishi L200 Triton RS after being invited by the organizers.
“We have learnt a lot in our years racing in the Mitsubishi Cup, so it is with great pleasure that we received the invitation to see our friends and have some fun”, said Baumgart.
