FFSA GT-C1: AKKA-ASP relaunches the title race

The first race of the final of the France championship FFSAGT on the Paul-Ricard route in the Var has reserved a twist scenario, which allows Morgan Moullin-Traffort and Jean-Luc Beaubelique (AKKA-ASP) associated with the Italian Rino Mastronardi, replacing Philippe Giauque from Navarra to return to the match for the title against the trio ofIMSA Performance

If the Porsche 911 GT3 R n°1 by Raymond Narac? Olivier Pernaut? Sébastien Dumez had taken pole position for this first round, an accident occurring at the very end of qualifying forced Olivier Pernaut to start from the pit lane this Saturday afternoon.

A first twist which could do the business of the Ferrari 458 Italia n°6 by Lémeret? Cayrolle? Santamato, or the Audi R8 LMS ultra n°3 of the Loeb Racing de Parisy? Hallyday? Gaillard, also in the running for the coronation, but who ultimately smiled on the AKKA-ASP team and the No. 458 F20.

Jérôme Policand's team, who also won the Teams title, notably benefited from the successive eliminations of the Audi n°3, caught by the other R8 of Loeb Racing, then of Arno Santamato, fighting at the front, who experienced a problem with the suspension of his Ferrari and was unable to see the finish.

Despite a drive-through collision with Loeb Racing's sister car, Lonni Martins, Christian Bottemanne and Christophe Hamon ultimately finished second, with Soheil Ayari, Maxime Pialat and Nicolas Tardif completing the podium in Sport's No. 458 Ferrari 9. Garage.

Olivier Panis, associated with Fabien Barthez and Eric Debard (Ferrari? AKKA-ASP) finished 4th ahead of another 458 Italia, the No. 8 from Beltoise-Duqueine-Colançon. Note that the Renault RS 01 from Team Duqueine de Lorgere-Roux? Bard? Clément enters the top 10 and dominates the Open Challenge. The Lorient Racing Porsche 911 wins the Gentlemen Challenge.

The last race of the season, decisive for the attribution of the Drivers' title, will begin tomorrow at 13:30 p.m. with Mike Parisy in pole position.
