Victories and a double for Tech 1 Racing at Spa-Francorchamps!

Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 – Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps




Tech 1 Racing arrived at Spa-Francorchamps with a sole aim – victory! The team was unbeatable in Belgium and won both races as well as scoring a double thanks to Hugo de Sadeleer and Dorian Boccolacci.


The Swiss driver has been faithful to the Toulouse-based outfit since 2013, and he showed just how much he had improved by clinching the greatest victory of his career!

     
A week after a pretty frustrating weekend at the Nürburgring in the Formula Renault 2.0 NEC, Tech 1 Racing was back in the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 with victory as their sole ambition.


In free practice Simon Abadie’s men were among the front-runners with Sacha Fenestraz in the leading trio in both sessions and three cars in the top 5.


The first qualifying session confirmed the promise seen earlier. Boccolacci set the second-fastest time while Fenestraz and de Sadeleer shared row three. Gabriel Aubry had his fastest lap cancelled by the stewards and he lined up in 12th place.


He drove an aggressive race and saw the flag in sixth spot. His team-mates stunned their rivals as de Sadeleer’s great getaway gave him first place when the leader was penalised for jumping the start.


The Swiss youngster went to score a dominant win, his first in Formula Renault 2.0, and Boccolacci’s second place gave Tech 1 Racing a double. Fenestraz was also in scintillating form and came home fourth.


The next day the Toulouse team had another solid qualifying session with de Sadeleer, Boccolacci and Fenestraz finishing in the top five.




 The trio made a lightening start and snatched the first three places when the lights went out before Lando Norris took advantage of their battle to split them. However, Boccolacci clinched his second victory of the season with de Sadeleer joining him on the podium while Fenestraz again took the flag in fourth place. Aubry who was further back on the grid had an early bath after being involved in a collision.


In the championship Tech 1 Racing is now lying second and will go for broke in Estoril to win the title.


Boccolacci will try to seal the runner-up spot in the drivers’ overall classification, while Fenestraz and de Sadeleer will go head-to-head for fifth place. Aubry will be determined to break back into the top 10 in his first season in the category.


“It was an extremely positive weekend in terms of results,” smiled Simon Abadie, the Tech 1 Racing team manager.


“We didn’t manage to set pole but it was obvious that our drivers had the potential to do so given the times they set without slipstreaming, unlike others who took advantage of it. So we were feeling very confident for the races.


“Hugo’s s exceptional weekend was a real source of satisfaction. We never doubted he had the potential since he joined us. The work we did during the winter to improve his performance in qualifying has paid off, particularly since Budapest.


 At Spa Hugo really got it all together to prove that he’s capable of winning. It was also an excellent weekend for Dorian who’s now second in the championship and full of confidence before the final round.


“Sacha too drove flawlessly all weekend. He deserved better than two fourth places, but the work is starting to pay off, in particular at the starts.


He’s progressing in leaps and bounds. It shouldn’t be forgotten that he’s a true rookie, but he’s got nothing to envy his rivals. Gabi had the speed and could aim for a place in the top six.


He lost out in Q1 and didn’t achieve the result we were hoping for; he then made a great comeback in the race. It was a similar story on Sunday before he damaged a wheel that didn’t do his championship hopes any good.


“So overall, it was all extremely positive,” summed up Abadie. “We’re second in both championships. We’re going to do everything we can to seal Dorian’s second place while gunning for the teams’ title.


That’s part of our aims in this great campaign. We’d also like Gaby to win a race so that all our drivers will have tasted victory this year. It’s up to us to ensure we have as good a weekend in the one that’s coming up in the NEC!”


This weekend Tech 1 Racing will be in action at Hockenheim for the final of the Formula Renault 2.0 NEC. After that the team will be focusing on the last event in the 2016 Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 Championship at Estoril on 21-23 October.
