Rallye du Touquet – Victory for Léo Rossel


Léo Rossel (C3 Rally2-PH Sport by Minerva Oil) clearly dominated this first meeting of the French Rally Championship. The Gard driver hit hard from the start and maintained a strong pace over the two stages, regardless of the road conditions. The PH Sport driver will therefore have number 1 on the doors for Rhône-Charbonnières next April.

Yoann Bonato (C3 Rally2-Trajectus Motorsport) offers his new team its first podium in the French Championship and scores big points on a rally which he particularly feared.

What a match for third place! It was ultimately Eric Brunson (C3 Rally2) who had the last word ahead of Anthony Fotia (C3 Rally2-PH Sport by Minerva Oil). The final Top 5 was completed by Jean-Baptiste Franceschi (Fiesta Rally2-Sarrazin Motorsport-Iron Lynx).

Relieved of the threat Quentin Gilbert (A110 Rally) after his puncture in SS 13, Raphaël Astier (A110 Rally-CHL Sport Auto), the defending champion, begins the season with a victory in the two-wheel drive classification.
