After winning the first race of the 2013 DTM season, Augusto Farfus was almost immediately thrown in front of the spotlight. Even before the season began, the BMW Motorsport team put together a clip of every one of their drivers but nobody payed too much attention to this little guy until now.
Born in Curitiba, Brazil, Augusto was raised around his father's restaurant and learned the trades of the job. However, alongside this 'job' he also followed his dream of becoming a race car driver.

Even as a young boy his father and all of his family encouraged him to follow his dreams and supported his practice on karting tracks and raceways as he grew older. Now, that he's 29 all the hard work he did when he was younger is finally paying off.

A devoted family man, Augusto is always supported from the stands by his wife and daughter that are very proud of him and travel to Europe constantly. Every once in a while, when he gets back in Brazil he loves to go swimming and reconnect with his home country, disconnecting himself from the stressful life of a racing driver.

We only wish him good luck in the future races and strongly advise you to watch the clip BMW Motorsport put together about him, to get a sense of just how modest and simple Augusto is in real life.
