Stephane Bouche wins Rd2 of French 1/8th Nats

Rd2 of French 1/8th Nats

The second round of the French Nationals were held last weekend at the Besancon track, one of the oldest in France. The race was well attended with 65 drivers, split between Elite and National classes, and as with all racing last weekend in Europe the competitors were greeted with glorious sunshine. In qualifying for the Eilte class it was Mugen racer, and round 1 winner, Nicolas Guillot that claimed the top qualifying spot ahead of the Kyosho pairing of Sebastian Zatla and Adrien Siegfried in 2nd and 3rd repectively.

In the Elite main final Stephane Bouche quickly made his way to the front with pole man Guillot slotting into second followed by Siegfried, up until he lost his second gear which dropped him down to 6th. Laurent Zatla also ran into trouble losing his belt which meant that Marc Pomponio could move into 3rd and that was how it finished with Bouche taking the win by 1 lap in front of Guillot with Pomponio a further 7 laps back. In the National class it was Serpent racer Gerald Colinet that took the win, by 1 lap ahead of Mugen racer Dominique Lichtle while 3rd position went Sylvain Tolomelli, also driving for Serpent.
