Leo Arnold wins at French 1/8th On-road Nats Rd4

Round four of the French 1/8th Nitro On-road Nationals was held in La Ferriere in Western France. The narrow track in combination with a fast yet technical layout made for challenging conditions and in the qualifiers it was Anthony Abisset who came out on top from Arnaud Mathieu, local driver Benjamin Brasset and Leo Arnold. In the semis, Leo took the win in the semi B while Anthony Abisset won the semi A, with the faster time handing Leo the pole position for the main final.

At the start of the 45 minute A-main, Anthony jumped into the lead while Leo was hampered by starting on somewhat bigger tyres as he planed to end the race without a tyre stop. About 15 minutes into the race, Leo was able to close the gap on the leader tenth by tenth and just before Anthony’s tree stop, Leo was right behind the leading car’s bumper. With the Serpent driver swapping tyres, Leo took over the lead and from that moment on he never looked back to take the win from Thomas Desmaries and Benjamin Brasset in second and third respectively.

1. Leo Arnold – Xray/Team Orion
