Jerome Aigoin wins Loudun French National

Jerome Aigoin wins Loudun French National

Round 1 of the French 1/8th buggy Nationals took place last weekend in Loudun in the west of the country. Qualifying saw Losi/Novarossi racer Yannick Aigoin take the TQ spot ahead of his brother Jerome Aigoin in 2nd for Kyosho, with Jerome Sartel for Xray in 3rd and recently crowned Australian Champion Renaud Savoya in 4th for Mugen. With little drama for the front runners in the semis, Yannick would start from pole position but a crash early on in the race would sideline him for a number of laps as his car received attention. This left a battle out front between Savoya and Jerome Aigoin, but with the latter running longer on a tank he could gain an advantage that saw him up front when it mattered and would take the win in front of Savoya in 2nd, with Sartel taking the final podium spot in 3rd.
