In the Formula class, the qualifyers were very tight between Jérémy Limoges and Jean Michel Varinard. Jérémy took the fastest TQ in the last qualifier but Jeam Michel took the 1st place on the grid. During the first 8-minutes A-main Jérémy suffered from differential problems and Jean Michel lost the first place in the last lap by 0.009sec behind Willy Voisangrin. Jean Michel then passed Jérémy in A2 for the win and so the final A-main would decide the race. As Jérémy suffered from used tyres Jean Michel passed him but in the last minutes his tyres overheated and Jeremy tried to pass him but Jean Michel resisted.
