    yannick-ae

    In a bit of a shock, newly crowned Neo Race constructor’s Champions Team Associated announced late last night that they have ended a company/driver relationship with France’s Yannick Aigoin that lasted since January 2012 - questions regarding the future of Yannick given his distribution business Aigoin Racing and interest in CML France now come into question with XRAY suggested as a rumoured potential destination.

    Effective immediately, Team Associated and Yannick Aigoin have agreed to part ways.  In his tenure at Team Associated, Yannick competed in two World Championships where he was the highest finishing French driver, along with competing in many International a-main events.  Team Associated would like to thank Yannick for his three years of dedication and wish him all the best going forward.

Powney’s time would then be beaten my Hot Bodies driver Wayne Wilson who captured the top spot in both Q3 and 4. As the final got underway it was anyone’s race to win.

The 14-year old collected his first A-Final victory, with Wayne Wilson and Lloyd Bostock finishing out the podium.  Read more…
