The race 2, in the afternoon, starts under the same auspices.

Alain Derognat stays the boss and accumulates rapids laps in leader in front of Fabrice Lefebvre finally forced to abandon in the middle of the race.

Patrick Fuet takes the opportunity to take this second place, to the detriment of Vincent Drouilleau.

Challenge GT/Tourisme Asavé

In great shape, Ghislain Gaubert loops the first three laps in the command, and finally Franck Morel succeeded him in lead.

For a short time point between them, Didier Gruau finished third in front of the usual driver F3 Classic, Eric Martin.

Asavé Racing 65

Already the fastest in the practices, José Beltramelli imposes logically its Chevrolet Corvette in head from the first laps.

The real battle is taking place away from him between the Lotus Elan of Jean-Pierre Vacher and Franck Julien, who finish the race together in the same second.

In the race of the afternoon, the time is the status quo. Once again, José Beltramelli dominates the situation, in his wake we find the less powerful Lotus Elan of Jean-Pierre Vacher and Franck Julien.

My favorite of the week end

For this weekend my favorite will be car with the largest engine ... The Viper GTS-R #C39 of Frank Morel

Already champion before Ledenon, Franck Morel dominated without sharing the GT-Classic category.
