The event was dominated by XRAY’s David Perez as he won all six rounds of qualifying for a solid TQ starting spot in the finals.

The final round of the French Offroad Nationals was held at the Savigny Le Temple facility this past weekend. While the event was missing Reno Savoya and Jerome Aigoin, the competition was still fierce with heavy hitters such as Yannick Aigoin, Jerome Sartel, JQP Sartel, Lorenzo Crolla, and many others. The track provided a bumpy and high traction racing surface, keeping drivers on their toes. Yannick Aigoin would take the TQ spot in qualifying, but it was JQRacing Factory Team driver, Rayan Medjoubi, who would shine in the final. After some misfortune of others and a hard charging fight back from an early mistake, Medjoubi worked his way to the front and captured the win for THECar.
