Endurance Proto - 3H of Magny-Cours (Sunday, 09h45) : Lucca Allen, Eric Trouillet, Sébastien Page and the Graff triumph



With a first victory in the general classification at Hockenheim, the Nova Proto NP02 n°74 of ANS Motorsport took its
second pole position of the season after Navarra. Nicolas Schatz, Pierre Courroye and Adrien Chila set the best
qualifying average of 1:33.826, relegating the #16 Graff Ligier JS P320, driven by Eric Trouillet, Lucca Allen and Sébastien Page, to 6 tenths!

 

It's a 3 hours race which awaits the proto drivers this Sunday, under the morning coolness, but nevertheless under a
beautiful blue sky. At the end of the race, Adrien Chila managed to take a good start to keep the pole advantage at the wheel of the NP02 n°74, in front of Eric Trouillet and the LMP3 of Graff. The time to find the right rhythm, the driver of the French team closes in on the leader and takes the lead of the race.


A few minutes later, after a contact with an LMP3, the NP02 n°74 was damaged on the right side. Adrien Chila was
unaware of the extent of the damage, which caused him to crash a few corners further on. The freelancer of the team
managed by Nicolas Schatz comes back to his pit. The verdict: a broken radiator. Back on the track, the problems were
not over as a gearbox problem put a definitive end to the race of the winning car in Germany. Pierre Courroye and
Nicolas Schatz were unable to take the wheel on Sunday.



As in previous races, the skimming of the top positions played a major role in the hierarchy following the various
problems encountered by the protagonists of the LMP3 category, starting with Pegasus Racing. Thibaut Ehrhart went
off the track in the big curve at the wheel of the #23 Ligier JS P320. An electronic problem marked the end of the race for the duo, completed by Julien Schell, victorious in LMP3 at Hockenheim, shortly after the halfway point.



Meanwhile, the n°16 Graff Ligier continued its solo run at the top of the standings. Despite a 30-second stop-and-go
penalty for speeding in the pit lane, Lucca Allen, accompanied in Burgundy by Eric Trouillet and Sébastien Page, won
under the chequered flag after 98 laps in three hours, 96 of which were at the top of the order.



The Irish driver, without his usual team-mates Umberto and Jacopo d'Amato, increased his lead in the championship with this third success of the season. The podium in the LMP3 class was completed by the #77 Ligier/Team Thor Racing, in collaboration with High Class Racing, and the #61 MG Sound Ginetta G61-LT-P3.



For their first race with the NP02 prototype, the Cogemo/TLRT team finished 2nd overall but above all won the NP02
category, ahead of the n°21 NP02 of DB Autosport. At the wheel of the latter, Daniel Bassora and Philippe Yschard's
team mate Mathias Beche made his presence felt in the last hour by setting the best lap in the race.



However, on a one-fuel strategy, the Swiss driver could not count on the emergency pump to cross the chequered flag, without any incidence on the ranking. Stéphane Panepinto and the young drivers Willyam Gosselin and Antoine Robert climb on the 3rd step of the podium in this category with the NP02 n°2.

In the CN category, Mathys Jaubert and Frédéric Croullet dominated again, taking their fourth victory in five races at the wheel of the Norma M20 FC n°72 of ANS Motorsport.







208 Racing Cup : Aurélien Comte and Aurélien Renet share the victories in Nivernais



43 cars entered, four 25-minute races, all on the Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours... All the ingredients were there to
make this penultimate round of the 208 Racing Cup a real success.



The battles on the track were at times fierce, with several clashes within the field. To win this weekend in the 208
Racing Cup, you had to be called Aurélien since Aurélien Comte won the first two races for the COMTE Racing Team,
while Aurélien Renet made the colours of JSB Compétition shine during races 3 and 4. The latter once again confirmed
his rise in power against the leader of the general classification after Nogaro, Pierre Bredeaux (COMTE Racing Team)
who suffered two withdrawals in Burgundy.


In the Junior category, Colin Boreau (Boreau Team Sport) triumphed twice this weekend, thus recovering some points
from the leader of the Junior ranking, in addition to the scratch, Pierre Bredeaux (COMTE Racing Team), who won the
category in race 3. Enzo Carvalhido (COMTE Racing Team) found his way back to victory in the final race on Sunday
morning.


Sébastien Gehin (GEMO Sport) did a great job in the Gentleman category, even taking a top 5 in the Sunday race.



208 Relay - 4H of Magny-Cours : FG Sport by Poissy wins the race



The first to arrive are not necessarily the winners, especially in the 208 Relay events where certain penalties imposed at the finish can upset the hierarchy.


The crew of the n°145/BP Sport 208, made up of Joran Leneutre, Bertrand Pate and Pierre Prevost, learned this the
hard way when they were given a 30 second penalty. The trio therefore lost the victory to Marc Fleurance and
Sébastien Gehin, winners on the green carpet for the 208 n°154/FG Sport by Poissy. With their penalty, the trio of the n°145 finished on the second step of the podium with 19 seconds of delay.

 

 

The mixed crew of the n°168/JSB Compétition, formed by Ilona Bertapelle and Aurélien Renet, started from pole
position and completed the overall podium.


Championship leaders Rahard Danick and David Henry in the #555/DANRACING 208 failed to finish on the podium, but
took the honours in the Gentleman category.
