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.

Baruffolo triumphs at the Arena Outdoor

Baruffolo triumphs at the Arena Outdoor

2013 European B Champion Marco Baruffolo took the win at the second edition of the Arena Outdoor Race on the wonderful DirtRace RC track in Asti, Italy, at the end of a convincing 60 minutes long dominance. After winning his semifinal and setting the fastest lap during the Superpole which allowed him to start from the 1 spot on the grid, Marco led the race from tone to tone, only to be challenged in the first 7 minutes by Stocco, who was then forced in the pits due to transmission issues. Behind them the third position was being held by Ricky Berton, whose buggy suffered from the loss of a turnbuckle screw and Ricky had to stop some 24 minutes into the race replace it. The second position was inherited by Mugen’s Davide Tortorici, who after a long fight with Valente managed to put his Sirio powered MBX7R ahead of Leonardo’s JQ, who had to settle for the third spot on the podium.

Hupo Hönigl was able to win A1 and A2 coming from the 3 spot on the grid to take the day’s win and with it the first ever Austrian 1/8th E-Buggy national title after winning the third meeting in a row.
