NWES GP FRANCE 2018





The two RDV Compétition teammates topped the charts at the Oval World Challenge


Frederic Gabillon (#3 Tepac RDV Compétition Toyota Camry) started on the right foot in his home country by setting the fastest lap in Qualifying on Friday for the first edition of the Oval World Challenge. His teammate Ulysse Delsaux grabbed the pole in the ELITE 2 Division, making it an all RDV Competition qualifying session.



A four-time Tours Speedway winner, Gabillon delivered a lap time of 16.562 seconds in the ELITE 1 Division and he will start from pole position in the first semi final of the Oval World Challenge on Saturday morning.



With a great qualifying run, Stienes Longin (#11 PK Carsport Chevrolet SS) rebounded from a fiery crash in Brands Hatch ending up second with a gap of 0.092 seconds. He will be on pole position in the second ELITE 1 Semi Final.



Marc Goossens (#91 Braxx Racing Chevrolet Camaro) was third ahead of Anthony Kumpen (#24 PK Carsport Chevrolet Camaro) and 2017 NWES champion Alon Day (#54 CAAL Racing Toyota Camry).



 NASCAR Cup champion Bobby Labonte (#18 YACCO RDV Compétition Toyota Camry) delivered his best qualifying run of the season with the sixth fastest time of the day in his first outing at Tours Speedway.



Loris Hezemans (#50 Hendriks Motorsport Ford Mustang) topped the Junior Trophy standings by finishing seventh ahead of Romain Iannetta (#32 Go Fas Racing Ford Mustang).



Alex Sedgwick (#90 Braxx Racing Ford Mustang) was eight overall and second in the Junior Trophy in his oval debut. Lucas Lasserre (#33 Mavi Mishumotors Chevrolet SS) rounded out the top 10.



Dario Caso (#8 Racers Motorsport Ford Mustang) was the fastest Challenger Trophy contender by taking 16th place in front of Kenko Miura (#2 Alex Caffi Motorsport Toyota Camry) and Mauro Trione (#31 Race Art Technology - Blu Motorsport Chevrolet Camaro).



Remember: While odd qualifiers will start in the first semi final, even qualifiers will race in the second semi final. Read all the rules of the first ever World Oval Challenge at the 650 meter long Tours Speedway here.





Delsaux complets a perfect day for RDV Compétition



Ulysse Delsaux (#3 Tepac RDV Compéition Toyota Camry) was fastest in ELITE 2 with a lap time of 16.754 seconds.



The young Frenchman grabbed the pole position for the first ELITE 2 semi final. Felipe Rabello (#11 PK Carsport Chevrolet SS) will be on pole position in the second semi final thanks to his second place in qualifying. The gap between him and the leader was a mere 0.077 seconds.



Justin Kunz (#46 Racing-Total Ford Mustang) ended up third, 0.091 seconds behind the leader, while Cycling World Champion Tom Boonen (#91 Braxx Racing Chevrolet Camaro), put up an impressive performance in his first outing on an oval with the fourth fastest time and points leader Guillaume Dumarey (#24 PK Carsport Chevrolet Camaro) rounded out the top 5.



Gil Linster (#44 CAAL Racing Chevrolet SS) ended up sixth in front of rookie Florian Venturi (#32 Go Fas Racing Ford Mustang), who fastest in practice.



Paul Guiod (#73 Knauf Racing Team Ford Mustang), TF1 Formula 1 TV commentator Adrien Paviot (#18 YACCO RDV Compétition Toyota Camry) and Wilfried Boucenna (#32 Knauf Racing Team Ford Mustang) rounded out the top 10.



Carmen Boix Gil (#33 Mavi Mishumotors Chevrolet SS) was first in the Lady Cup and Jerry De Weerdt (#78 Braxx Racing Ford Mustang) was fastest in the Legend Trophy.
