Yannick Aigoin takes Rd2 of French Nationals

Yannick Aigoin takes Rd2 of French Nationals

Round 2 of the French 1/8th scale buggy nationals took place in Reims in the north of the country and it was bright sunny weather that greeted the competitors, a change from the wet conditions that forced the finals in round 1 to be cancelled. With a lot of French racers competing at this weekend’s Neo 11 race, Rd1 winner Jerome Aigoin being one of those, only a handful of the top drivers were present, hoping to get some all important points. Qualifying went the way of Losi driver Yannick Aigoin ahead of Durango team driver Renaud Savoya who came over from Dallas for the event. Jerome Couchon, Sebastian Wartelle and Tony Robin completed the top 5. With no major problems in the semis, the top two placed on the grid for the main final remained the same. In the final Savoya hit problems early one with a suspected locked wheel, which dropped him out of contention. Yannick cruised up front and took the victory by nearly 2 laps ahead of Romain Valter driving a Mugen with Kyosho driver Tony Robin in 3rd, 8 seconds further back.
