Yannick Aigoin victorious at Montpellier GP

Yannick Aigoin victorious at Montpellier GP

The annual Montpellier GP took place this weekend and attracted some of Europe’s best racers to battle it out for glory. Qualifying saw Losi driver Yannick Aigoin take the top spot ahead of current European Champion Renaud Savoya in 2nd with Spanish racer Daniel Vega in 3rd and Martin Bayer from the Czech Republic in 4th. Following the semi finals it was Losi driver Martin Bayer that would claim the pole position ahead of Renaud Savoya in 2nd with Jerome Aigoin in 3rd. The 60 minute final started off with the front runners maintaining their starting order and due to different fuel strategies the top 3 starters occupied the front spots in various orders until the 20 minute mark when Yannick Aigoin worked his way up through the field to the front to sit just behind his twin brother Jerome. At the halfway point Yannick was into the lead just ahead of Bayer but the two team mates would battle it out for the rest of the final, with Bayer making a mistake under pressure close the end allowing Yannick through to take the win by 4 seconds at the end, with Bayer in 2nd and Kyosho team driver Jerome Aigoin taking 3rd.
