ROAD TO LE MANS: Weiss/Kratz emerge winners from a truncated race.

It’s a 100% Cool Racing front row that we find at the start of race 1. James Sweetnam starts in the lead but quickly gives up ground before having to give up at the end of the 2nd lap. Torsten Kratz (Duqueine M30-D08 #22 WTM by Rinaldi Racing) takes command when braking for the first Mulsanne chicane, but several track exits, including that of Frenchman Sylvain Guintoli, involve the safety car.

Cleverly, a handful of competitors anticipate the obligatory pit stop. They easily find themselves at the top of their respective categories at the restart: Emmanuel Collard (Ferrari 296 GT3 #82 AF Corse is even ahead of the leader of the higher category Pengcheng Ye (Duqueine M30-D08 #3 from DKR Engineering). The Frenchman is under the pressure of the two Aston Martins of the Blackthorn team while Ye is swallowed up by the peloton from the first braking Leonard Weiss takes the lead just before the race is stopped Louis Rossi’s car is destroyed after contact with the. Fortunately, the former motorcycle Grand Prix driver, winner of the French Grand Prix in 2012 (Moto 3), got out of the carcass of his prototype under his own power.

Meet the Road to Le Mans competitors on Saturday June 15 at 10:35 a.m., as a prelude to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, for race 2!

Favorite Amaury Bonduel betrayed by a puncture

Yet favorite due to his status as championship leader, and author of the two pole positions yesterday, Amaury Bonduel let victory slip away during the first Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe race this Thursday. However, everything starts well for him. He escapes with his golden Italian machine, and already has a lead of 2”850 after one loop. His closest pursuers – Sebastian Balthasar in the #70 of the Leipert Motorsport team and Mattia Michelotto in the #6 of VSR – returned to the pits on the fifth lap for their obligatory stop. Bonduel pushes for an additional round.

But, at full speed, between the two Hunaudières chicanes, his Huracan Super Trofeo EVO2 punctured at the left rear and was forced to stop. Largim Ali (Target Racing #9), second in the championship, regains the lead very provisionally, having not yet observed his stop. Once all the competitors have completed this formality, it is Jacob Riegel (who took over from Sebastian Balthasar in the #7) who is in the lead. Dramatic turn of events less than 15 minutes from the goal: he too punctured, this time again at full speed and from the left rear, before arriving at Indianapolis. Mattia Michelotto on the #6 of VSR regains the lead and does not leave it until the finish. On the final podium, we find Oliver Söderström and Largim Ali (Target Racing #9) and Simon Tirman accompanied by Simon Gachet (Schumacher CLRT #83).
