Arnaud Mathieu wins at French 1/8th On-road Nats Rd2

Arnaud Mathieu wins at French 1/8th On-road Nats Rd2

The second round of the French 1/8th Nitro On-road Nationals was held at the Mulhouse track. The demanding track with high tyre wear made things interesting and to top it off did rain make for another factor during the Elite class qualifying that was ultimately won by Adrien Bertin in front of Antoine Gaschet, Thomas Eytard and Anthony Abisset, while Arnaud Mathieu rounded out the top 5 after the qualifiers.

Thankfully the rain stopped on Sunday and it was Arnaud who dominated the semifinals to take the pole position for the main final with Stéphane Bouche and Thomas Eytard lining up in second and third. Leading the race from beginning to the end with a nice battle in the first part with Leo Arnold, who was on a more aggressive strategy, Arnaud could then secure the overall victory, taking the win some two laps ahead of Leo who finished second, while Christophe Louis would grab the final podium spot.
