THEY SAID: 

Jean-Pierre RICHELMI, Winner in the pre-1991 Berlin/GT category at 200 km and both races in the Maxi 2L Classic: "On Saturday in the rain with the Lotus it's impossible to win, but the second race was dry and I had a great time with my friend right to the end, so I was very happy. It was harder with the car at the 200 km mark because we lost power at the end, but we won the category and we're going to put it right for the next race." 

Augustin MOREAU, winner of race 2 in the Youngtimers GTI Cup: "We're at Magny-Cours, it's a very beautiful circuit, the car worked for me and there were some great battles with the top 4 in my category. Right from qualifying we knew it was going to be tight, because we were all in the same second and the cars worked perfectly. My objective is the French championship, and I'm still in contention and in the top 3, so it's looking good for now, and we'll see about the next race at Nogaro."  

UPDATE ON THE FRENCH CHAMPIONSHIP

This weekend marked the halfway point in the season for the 300 drivers entered in the French championship. After 6 races, some gaps are widening, while others are narrowing. In the single-seater/rotor category, François BELLE (Formule Ford Historic) maintains his 15-point lead over Jean-Charles MONNET and his Formule Renault Turbo Classic (235 pts vs. 220 pts), both of whom scored a one-two finish this weekend. In third place was Swiss driver Gislain GENECAND with 211 points in the Formula Ford Historic class. 

In the GT/Tourisme Pré 90 category, the three front-runners shone at the weekend, winning both races in their respective categories. Emmanuel BRIGAND dominated the standings with 226 points in the Racing Over 2L, ahead of Monegasque Jean-Pierre RICHELMI with 201 points in the Maxi 2L Classic. Philippe GANDINI, competing in the Maxi 1300 Series, completed the podium just one point behind his predecessor.

Still in GT/Touring but this time Post 90, Mathieu RIGOULET dominates with 191 points in the Roadster Pro Cup, ahead of Augustin MOREAU in the Youngtimers GTI Cup with 181 points. Sébastien Mathieu, from the GT Classic grid, came third after an excellent weekend with 175 points. 

In the historic endurance category, the insatiable duo of Jean-Pierre RICHELMI and Philippe GACHE are in the lead with 82 points. They are overtaken by the very fine performance of the weekend by the Franco-Swiss duo Xavier MICHEL and Gislain GENECAND, just 6 points behind. In third place, Jean-François BESSON and Guillaume GAGNARD were hot on their heels with 66 points.
