Eytard wins in France, Concialdi takes title

Eytard wins in France, Concialdi takes title

The fifth and final round of the French 1/10th scale 200mm Nationals took place in Grenoble last weekend. In the Elite class it was Xray driver Thomas Eytard that took the top qualifier spot ahead of Capricorn driver Basile Concialdi in 2nd and KM racer Frederic Bourrillon in 3rd. In the main final Frederic Bourrillon with the KM H-K1 was very fast with a different tire strategy but unfortunately he hit a crashed car in front of him and broke the steering rod while leading. The very young Léo Arnold (Capricorn/Orion/Matrix) had a fantastic race with a great battle for the lead with Thomas Eytard for almost half of the race. Unfortunately Léo had to stop 45 seconds before the end of the race after he stripped a gear. In the end it was Thomas Eytard (Xray/RB) who took the win with Michael Derderian (Xray/RB) in 2nd and Basile Concialdi (Capricorn/Orion) in 3rd, who is also the new French Champion for 2011.
