On the start of the main Ashlee made one minor mistake on the first lap through the rhythm section but he quickly made a move on lap 2 to regain the first spot, holding a sizeable lead until the end. Team mate Richard Greenough (Xray) came in second, Lewis Rushton (Agama) rounded out the podium in third.

DJ Apolaro wins 200mm class at Great Lakes Challenge

Last weekend’s Great Lakes Challenge saw Capricorn’s DJ Apolaro (Capricorn/Novarossi) walking away with the win in the 1/10th 200mm Sedan class. Already very consistent in qualifying DJ was able to pretty much control the main final thanks to a good pit strategy, swift refuelling and a tyre-saving drive to take the win in front of Paolo Morganti (Serpent/Picco) and Ralph Burch (Xray/Max Power).

Jerome Aigoin wins French Cup 2015

Jerome Aigoin wins French Cup 2015

The annual 1/8th Off-road French Cup was held this past weekend with around 100 drivers in attendance. The 3-day meeting started on Friday but rain affected the practice sessions and even on Saturday morning the track wasn’t fully dry but equipped with super soft tyres the drivers would be able to tackle the qualifiers that saw Jerome Aigoin taking the TQ honours in every of the four rounds. In the final, Jerome took the lead and he was able to built a comfortable gap of up to 20 seconds on his brother Yannick and the Sartels. Jerome opted for a safe strategy with an extra pit stop and despite a last minute roll he was able to grab the day’s win from his brother Yannick.
