Riccobono & Thirion win French nationals Rd3
Last week-end the third round of the French 1/8 scale on-road national championship was held in Evry/France near Paris. The track which held the European Championships many years ago saw close racing in the Promotion and Elite classes. In the Promotion class called “national” in France, Damien Thirion claimed the TQ spot with Jeremy Cassagne and Vincent Nousse in second and third place respectively. It also was Damien who drove his RB-powered Xray RX8 to the first place in the finals with Gregory Tassencourt in second and Stephane Bertrand in third place after the finals. The Elite class was led by Christophe Aygon after qualification with Stephane Bouche and Christophe Louis in second and third place. Come the finals things turned for the better for eight placed Stephane Riccobono who won the 45 minute finals with his RB-powered RX8 in front of the two Motonica drivers Stephane Bouche and Arnaud Mathieu.
