ULTIMATE CUP SERIES
Paul Ricard, France

Saturday, November 12th 2022



It was on the Circuit Paul Ricard, scene of the final round of the 2022 Ultimate Cup Series season, that the Single Seater Challenge reached its epilogue. With three drivers vying for the F3R title, Nicolas Prost, Sacha Maguet and Loris Kyburz, the weekend promised to be particularly exciting.



The reigning champion and great favourite to succeed him, Nico Prost, announced his intentions in qualifying by winning the two pole positions at stake in the Var at the wheel of the F3R n°1 of the CMR team, ahead of Loris Kyburz (Graff) in Q1 and Shannon Lugassy (CMR) in Q2.
 


The last three races of the season took place in very good weather conditions on Saturday 12 November. The first 20-minute race took place at the stroke of 9am and was dominated from start to finish by the Franco-Swiss driver from the CMR team, taking another step towards the title against his two rivals. Nicolas Prost repeated the feat a few hours later, at midday, with a victory that definitively sealed the fate of the championship.
 


With his second crown in his pocket, the CMR driver approached the last race without the slightest pressure, but with the same thirst for victory. This state of mind led him once again to victory - his 10th of the year - thus achieving a full house with three victories in three races on Saturday.



Nicolas Prost, double champion of the Single Seater Challenge: "We really wanted to prepare this season well with the desire to win head and shoulders. We had a few mechanical breakdowns which cost us a lot of points, but we performed superbly. To finish here with three wins is really pleasing. The team worked like crazy.”
 



Despite his second place in race 1, Loris Kyburz (F3R/Graff) did not manage to keep the suspense alive any longer, failing to finish at the foot of the podium in the other two races. Shannon Lugassy (F3R/CMR), who performed well here in the opening round last April, was once again very comfortable in the Var, starting with a 3rd place in C1, then climbing onto the 2nd step of the podium in races 2 and 3.



Also to be noted is the good weekend of the driver of the F3R n°21 of the Graff, Paul Trojani, author of two third places for only his second time in the championship.
 


On the FR2.0 side, Christophe Hurni (Sports-Promotion) had left very little, if any, hope to his opponents for the title. However, the Swiss rider continued his momentum by winning the first two races, while his young compatriot Gaspard Le Gallais, who is none other than Nicolas Prost's nephew, took the victory in the 18th and last race of the season.
