Jerome Sartel takes Montpellier GP

Jerome Sartel takes Montpellier GP

Xray have a report from newly signed team driver Jerome Sartel on last weekends Montpellier GP. Coming fresh from his win in both the buggy and truggy classes at the recent Euro Indoor race, the French racer was initially struggling, partly due to the cold temperatures and lack of practice. Having qualified 6th, and continuing to fine tune his car, he would start the main final from 6th after placing 4th in his semi final. A change of tires transformed the car and saw Sartel battling in 3rd behind Rodriguez and Ezazian in the early part of the race, taking the lead after 15 minutes only to have a fast charging Renaud Savoya move onto his tail. A battle ensued but when the Mugen racer had problems, Jerome saw himself with a lap lead ahead of 2nd and could cruise home for the win, in front of Jerome Ezazian and Nico Rodriguez.
