Morgatto and Cepil confirm their potential
Three Birel ART Racing drivers were on a very good pace in Aunay-les-Bois. With his RK/TM, Tymoteusz Kucharczyk had a difficult time in the heats despite a good 2nd place. He started 17th in the Final and fought his way back to 12th before his result was destroyed due to a minor technical problem. 30th in Qualifying, Matheus Morgatto was delayed by two crashes in the heats which prevented him from fighting for the top 10. He managed to come back from the back of the grid to 16th place thanks to his confidence in his equipment. Igor Cepil also showed very strong competitiveness by reaching 21st in the Final after interesting progress. Cristian Bertuca was unlucky in Qualifying and during the heats and was not able to qualify.
Macintyre finally shows his talent
After several complicated event, William Macintyre had a very convincing run in France in the OK-Junior class. He set the fastest time in the second timed session and took the 3rd position in the overall classification. Thanks to four good heats, he was in the top five of the category at the start of the Final. Due to damaged valves at the start of the Final, he couldn’t fight with the same efficiency as during the heats and aim for the podium as he should have. Contact with three laps to go caused him to lose ground, but he still finished in 12th position, which helped him gain more than 30 places in the Championship ranking.
