Category: Miscellaneous, News Posted 03.10.12 18:18 by

The second Dreux round of the French Rallycross Championship was won by Renault Clio Mk3 campaigner Jérôme Grosset-Janin, beating the Peugeot men Gaëtan Sérazin and Samuel Peu to the places.


For the 10th round of the French Rallycross Championship the contenders returned to the Circuit de l’Ouest Parisien at Dreux, where Round 2 of the FRC had already been driven at the end of April. In qualification Jérôme Grosset-Janin drove his Renault Clio Mk3 to two fastest heat times to ensure himself the pole position of the A final. The place on the starting grid beside him was claimed by Philippe Tollemer (Citroën C4). 2011 FRC winner Samuel Peu (Peugeot 207) completed the trio for the front row, while championship leader Gaëtan Sérazin was waiting in the back for his chance to come.

In the last race of the day Grosset-Janin scored his third victory of the season, but Tollemer dropped back some places after being involved in a collision as well as making a mistake during his Joker Lap detour. When the chequered flag was woven Sérazin finished as the runner-up to Grosset-Janin, Peu bagged the third place on the SuperCars rostrum.

In the Super1600s category David Olivier drove the Renault Twingo Mk2 to his first 2012 FRC round victory, beating point standings leader Laurent Chartrain to second spot. Third place was picked up by Fabien Chanoine, while Rallycross lady Adeline Sangnier became victim of a collision and found herself back on 7th place only. Victory of the Division 3 was claimed by Christophe Saunois in his Toyota Corolla with Nissan V6 engine, Division 4 was won by Jimmy Terperau in the ex-Yvonnick Jagu Audi A3, and among the Dacia Logan Cup contenders Fabien Grosset-Janin ran away with his sixth victory out of eight events.
