Nicolas Guillot wins Rd1 of French 1/8th Nats

Rd1 of French 1/8th Nats

As well as the 1st round of the 1/10th Nationals that we wrote about that took place last weekend, the first round of the 1/8th scale Nationals took place on the same weekend in Avignon. In qualifying it was Mugen racer Stephane Bouche that would claim the pole position ahead of Kyosho racer Sebastian Zatla in 2nd and Adrien Siegfried, also driving a Kyosho in 3rd. At the start of the main final Guillot is knocked off the track and almost loses a lap while Bouche and Siegfried are left to battle it out at the front, Siegfried eventually having to retire with mechanical problems gifting Bouche the lead. All the time Guillot is working his way up the field having found a good pace and when Bouche has a problem, Guillot pounces and takes the lead and with it his first ever win in the Elite class followed home by Bouche in 2nd and Zatla in 3rd.
