Quentin Leroux wins French 200mm Nats Rd2


This weekend the third round of the 200mm french championship took place on the magnificent track of Limoges. The practice started on Friday with a pleasant weather, but on Saturday things got complicated by some heavy rain, and only one qualification could still be done on Saturday on a dry track but with a totally different grip. The last two qualifications were then postponed to Sunday morning but they were still ran in low grip conditions.

The qualifying results would see Kevin Rasquin taking the TQ honours with his Capricorn C-03, followed by the other Capricorns of Quentin Leroux and Guillon Thomas, with Shepherd’s Concialdi Basile in fourth.

For the main final the track presented a better grip thanks to the lower finals made in the day and with a very good weather, that helped the conditions return to normal. The three capricorn in the lead were ready to fight for the win for 45 min but from the second turn Quentin Leroux took the lead not to let it go and finished 3 laps ahead of the second Kevin Rasquin who would fight for the second place with Michael Derderian. Thomas Guillon, who also was in the battle for the second place for a while, will not have a chance to challenge until the end being forced to retirement with a broken engine.
