Stephane Bouche wins French season opener

Stephane Bouche wins French National season opener

The first round of the French 1/8th scale on road championship took place in Toulouse last weekend. During qualifying the track was wet and making the best of those conditions was Motonica/Vox driver Sebastien Zatla who took TQ in front of Shepherd/GiMar driver Richard Volta and Motonica/Max driver St├ęphane Bouche. In the final Richard Volta took the lead in the first laps, but after a few minutes it was young talented driver Arnaud Mathieu who took the lead only to run out of fuel. One minute before the end of the the race, it was Volta in the lead by 2 seconds from Stephane Bouche with his Motonica team mate Jerome Papaconstantinos in third. All drivers were pushing hard after 44 minutes of racing when Volta made a mistake at the end of the straight allowing Stephane Bouche to the front and take the win on his debut race with the new Motonica P81 RS. Richard Volta recovered to take 2nd and Jerome Papaconstantinos took 3rd.
