The ARCF 42 club of Saint Etienne, France played host to a round of the French 1/8th Nitro Buggy Nationals. The event saw the running of the Elite and National category drivers in a single class, hence the name of the race: The Big One. TLR’s Renaud Savoya was the man to beat in qualifying, making a clean sweep in all qualifiers to take the overall TQ. In the main final it was again Renaud who would excel, taking the win with a 1-lap margin from Xray’s Yannick Aigoin while Team Associated’s Tom Robin came in 3rd to round out the podium. Kyosho’s Rayan Medjoubi and veteran racer Adrien Bertin (HB Racing) completed the top 5 results.
