Adrien Bertin wins French 8th Nats Rd1

Adrien Bertin wins French 8th Nats Rd1

The opening round of the French 1/8th scale National series was held last weekend in Toulouse in the south west of France, close to Spain. The race saw 63 drivers entered separated between Elite and National classes and the weather for the event was cold but dry for most of the event. Qualifying for the Elite class saw Team Orion engine man Adrien Bertin, driving a Kyosho, take the pole position for the main final in front of Sebastian Zatla in 2nd and Stéphane Bouche 3rd, while in the National class it was Maxime Tenet who started 1st ahead of Philippe Regolle in 2nd and Jérémy Cassagne 3rd. Following the semi finals the main finals got underway and in the Elite class it was Bertin and Bouche who lead away, remaining like this up until the 15 minute mark when there was some light rain which made some drivers pit for new tires, something Bertin didn’t do and he could stretch his lead to win by 3 laps from Bouche in 2nd and Laurent Zatla in 3rd. In the National class it was local driver Jérémy Cassagne that took the lead and stretched out a gap, and despite the engine stopping once, could maintain his lead and take the win by a lap from Gérald Colinet in 2nd and Maxime Tenet in 3rd.
