Dominates the ELITE 2 Round 8 at Tours Speedway, grabs third career win




Ulysse Delsaux (#3 Tepac RDV Compétition Toyota Camry) capped a fantastic weekend at Tours Speedway, France with another flag to flag win. The 20-year-old Frenchman swept the Oval World Challenge with a dominating performance in his Toyota Camry, handling as a veteran several restarts.



 The two wins at Tours Speedway are the first for Delsaux on an oval track but also the first on home soil. The RDV Compétition driver earned the 5.000 Euro prize money awarded to the ELITE 2 winner.




“It’s the first time ever for me to win two consecutive races in NWES,” said Delsaux. “I’m so happy, this was a great weekend for the team. Thanks to my crew for giving me such a great car today. It was fantastic. Now I am looking forward to the playoffs.”



Nicholas Risitano (#8 Racers Motorsport Ford Mustang) won the Rookie Cup by finishing charging second. The Italian started fifth, took advantage of the restarts and a great pace, fighting his way up to the podium for the first time since Valencia.



“I am so happy to finish second after we had to climb back to the front”, said Risitano. “The car was fantastic and the team did a great job. They worked until 3 AM in the morning to provide me this great car. I am really looking forward to the next NWES race at Hockenheim in September.”



Guillaume Deflandre (#77 Memphis Racing Chevrolet Camaro) came back from ninth to third place with the usual aggressive race, grabbing his fourth podium in the 2018 season. Paul Guiod (#73 Knauf Racing Team Ford Mustang) and Francesco Parli (31 Race Art Technology - Blu Motorsport Chevrolet Camaro) rounded out the top 5.



The Swiss also grabbed the second spot on the Rookie Cup Podium and won the Legend Trophy with a couple of perfect lane choices on restart.



Jerry De Weerdt (#78 Braxx Racing Ford Mustang) scored a solid sixth place ahead of Felipe Rabello (#11 PK Carsport Chevrolet SS) and Gil Linster (#44 CAAL Racing Toyota Camry).




Formula One commentator Adrien Paviot (#18 YACCO RDV Compétition Toyota Camry) was ninth ahead of Carmen Boix Gil (#33 Mavi Mishumotors Chevrolet SS), who won the Lady Cup and completed the top 10.



The ELITE 2 Division will be back on September 15-16 at the legendary Hockenheimring in Germany. The NASCAR GP of Germany will also officially open the 2018 NWES playoffs.




 All races will be streamed live at Fanschoice.tv, the Euro NASCAR YouTube channel, the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series Facebook page, motorsport.tv and several websites and Facebook pages from around the world.
