FRC: Grosset-Janin hits back

Category: July, Miscellaneous, News Posted 19.07.12 12:00 by

After Gaëtan Sérazin won four French Rallycross Championship rounds in a row at Lessay it was his main opponent Jérôme Grosset-Janin who fought back.


Renault Clio Mk3 SuperCar campaigner Jérôme Grosset-Janin had won the opening round of the French Rallycross Championship at Essay, but after his perfect season start it was Peugeot 207 driver Gaëtan Sérazin who picked the laurels of the following four events. However, last Sunday at Lessay Grosset-Janin was able to overturn Gaëtan’s ladder to success and to score his second 2012 overall victory.

After reigning French champion Samuel Peu had set the fastest times in the first and second qualifying heats the Peugeot driver had ensured himself the pole position for the A final. Beside his 207 where the Renault Clio of Grosset-Janin and the Peugeot 207 of Sérazin placed. But the pole did not help at all as Peu once again faced troubles with his car and was forced to retire while Grosset-Janin and Sérazin stormed away to their one-two victory.

In Super1600s Julien Fébreau had entered the FRC only in Round 5 to become the runner-up to Laurent Chartrain, but at Lessay the Citroën Saxo driver scored his first victory. Three days after his 46th birthday Marc Morize hurled his Peugeot 207 with Nissan V6 engine to his third 2012 victory in Division 3. In Division 4 Sébastien Le Ferrand (Peugeot 306 Maxi) claimed his first victory of the year.

Among the Logan Cup contenders there seems to be no miracle cure against the supremacy of Fabien Grosset-Jasnin, the runner-up of last year’s Logan Dacia series at the Circuit de Lessay claimed his fourth victory in as many rounds.
