Coming off his 4th Brasil Porsche GT3 Cup Series Championship, Miguel Paludo is looking to keep his winning streak alive in 2018. Paludo will compete for an unprecedented 3rd consecutive Porsche Series Championship, and represent Brasil and BRANDT against the best Porsche champions around the globe at Barcelona, Spain. The Nova Prata, Brazil, native had a career year in 2017, capturing both the overall championship and his 1st endurance championship.

Miguel Paludo got his first taste of racing in a go-kart at age 14 and did not pursue his racing career professionally until after graduating from college and starting his own successful business. At age 21, Paludo and his brother Daniel competed side-by-side in an entry in one of Brazil’s regional touring car series. Paludo experienced success immediately, winning just the fourth race in which he competed. 

That same year, Paludo was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. However, he did not let the diagnosis stop him. He continued to pursue his racing career, all while learning how to manage his diabetes. In 2006, Paludo took his talents to the national level, racing Renault Clios, where he earned two podium finishes. In 2008, Paludo graduated to the Porsche GT3 Cup Brasil, winning the championship on the strength of three wins, two poles and 11 top-three finishes. Paludo repeated his performance the following year, becoming the first back-to-back and two-time champion in series history.

After three seasons in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, 2015 marked Paludo’s return to Porsche GT3 Cup Brasil season with BRANDT as primary sponsor.
