Tiago Monteiro distinguished as Personality of the Year by the Portuguese Sports Confederation

Prestigious award for WTCC winner Monteiro

Tiago Monteiro was honored by the Portuguese Sports Confederation when he was awarded the Sports Merit Award in the Portuguese Sports Personality of the Year” ceremony at the 22nd Annual Gala held at Casino do Estoril.

The Portuguese driver, who was fighting for the World Touring Car Championship title last year when a serious accident sidelined him for the remainder of the season, was happy to see his hard work recognized.

“It is very gratifying for me to receive this award. I started the season in the best possible way and unfortunately it did not end as I expected. I am happy to see my work recognized even if the world title eluded me. This recognition is even more motivation for me to continue working on my recovery so that I am able to return to the track as soon as possible. A special thank you to all those who follow my career and support me, but above all, the medical team that works with me daily and of course my whole family,” said Tiago Monteiro.
