Coelho wins GP3F

Bruno Coelho has won the GP3F leading home an Xray 1-2 at the French classic.  The 18th running of the race, Coelho would snatch the overall TQ from team-mate Alexander Hagberg.  The Swede held the overnight TQ in Longwy but Sunday morning’s fourth & final qualifier saw Coelho put in the fastest run to take the TQ honours on the tie-breaker with his team-mate.  Behind, Mugen’s Ronald Volker lined up third with defending Champion Marc Rheinard’s Awesomatix carrying the no.4.  In the triple A-mains, Coelho took the the first encounter from a very fast Hagberg, the former 1:12 World Champion laying down the fastest lap of the race as he tried to get to the front.  In A2, World Champion Coelho again took the win from Hagberg to go one better than 2022 and secure the overall victory.  Hagberg got his win in A3 with a 1-second winning margin over Volker, the German completing the overall podium.  In Pro Stock, Alexandre Duchet made it also an win for Xray, taking opening two A-mains from P2 on the grid.  Top Qualified Tim Benson would win A3 to secure second with Adam Izsay making up the Top 3.  In Front Wheel Drive it was Luxembourg’s Jacques Libar took the win.
