Race report by Reno Savoya
Back to the homeland! First week end of November is every year the week end of Pierrefeu GP. Unfortunately this year the weather forecast was pretty rough and most of the international drivers didn't make the trip to Southern France. Friday went great as we ran 3 rounds in dry conditions. I started with the setup I used in Surabay for C-netic challenge except for the shocks where I went softer due to the temperature. On Saturday, the forecast was rude for the afternoon so we started really early in the morning to clear at least one round. I knew I had to race clean and don't crash as it could be the only round. It was the case as I TQed the round and by so, the overall.

It rained all night and also in the morning on Sunday. The organisers made a fanstastic job to pull away the puddles and dry the track with saw dust, as no one was expecting to race with such showers we had all night!

I cruised all the 20minutes in my semi, to get number one on the grid for the main in front of Jerome Aigoin.

The first lap saw a 2 way battle between Jerome Aigoin and I as we switched positions twice. I finally took the leadership after a few corners and kept it until the 30 minutes tone!

Great week end and atmosphere, it feels good to be back home! Another great TQ and win in the bag, the way to go for confidence before the Worlds in a few weeks!
