En raison de l'absence imprévue mardi dernier de la chroniqueuse auto Anne-Christine Horent, l'émission Télématin n'avait pu diffuser le sujet consacré à Pierre Gasly, élève pilote de l’Auto Sport Academy finalement 3ème du Championnat de France F4. Il sera donc diffusé mardi 1er novembre, toujours à 6h50.
Ne manquez pas ce reportage sur l’ex-pilote de l’Equipe de France FFSA Karting qui vient de signer, sur le circuit Paul Ricard HTTT, les deux pole positions et les deux victoires du week-end !

La Coupe de France après le Championnat pour un Becq intouchable en Cadet cette saison.
Qualifiés lors des Championnats Régionaux 2011, les pilotes Minimes et Cadets se sont retrouvés sur le circuit d'Essay pour une Coupe de France particulièrement animée. Sans doute dopés par les prestations de leurs aînés engagés dans le meeting GPO auquel ils ont pris part, ils ont donné le meilleur d'eux-mêmes. La course s'est en outre déroulée dans une excellente ambiance, tant sur le plan sportif que technique.
Le circuit d'Essay cher à Claude Gripon s'est prêté à merveille à cette grande organisation nationale. "Deux mois après avoir reçu pour la première un Championnat du Monde, je suis très heureux que tout se soit déroulé dans de bonnes conditions. La météo a été plutôt clémente et les courses passionnantes. Ce fut un honneur de recevoir à la fois le final des GPO et la Coupe de France FFSA Minime-Cadet qui, rappelons-le, regroupe les futurs espoirs du sport automobile. J'en profite aussi pour remercier les officiels et les nombreux bénévoles qui ont fourni un travail précieux et efficace", commentait le Président du K61.

As in Minime the outside line was hard to start from in the Cadet French Cup. Gautier Becq protected his position to complete the first lap ahead of Jules Bollier. Alexandre Pouliquen was held up, but quickly maneuvered back into third position with Emilien Carde in his wake. Behind that Anthoine Fernandez was trying to keep up with the leaders' furious pace. In the same way that he did throughout the weekend, Becq stayed there, leaving Bollier isolated in second position. The battle raged for third place between Pouliquen and Carde, who took the lead on the fourth lap. But with 17 laps on the program, the race promised to be long.
The unfortunate Maxime Naud had unfortunately disappeared, as had Lucas Schizzi. It was then the turn of Pouliquen to stop permanently. Unlucky in the pre-final, Nathan Hucher was fired up, he was fifth in the wake of Fernandez just before the halfway point. A few laps later, he managed to overtake. As the laps wound down, the gaps that stretched between the drivers. After all his effort, Gautier Becq won the Coupe de France ahead of Bollier who was happy with this result in his first attempt in Cadet. Carde retained third place ahead of Hucher and Fernandez was able to control the rest. Louis-Ferdinand Simmenauer and Marc Cammarata finished grouped on the line in sixth and seventh positions.

Arthur Lehouck retained the leader at the start of the final for the Minime, while Florian Venturi surprised Nathan Hedouin. Tom Leuillet was fourth, but seemed to have trouble keeping up with the top three early in the race. He himself had to be wary of Julien Sanson. Behind Alexandre Retou and Alexandre Vromant passed, and then lost out to Jean-Baptiste Simmenauer and Luca Antonucci. The latter continued the recovery he started in the pre-final.
At the halfway point Lehouck had built a slight lead against the Venturi Hedouin duo who were bumper to bumper. Moreover, Hedouin eventually succeeded in taking second position. For the following places, there was a superb squad of a dozen drivers together, which was beautiful to watch. Sanson's pressure was high and the Norman lost many places, while Alexandre Schmit increased his effort, Alain Landemaine in his wake.
The final was not over because Hedouin - with the fastest lap in his pocket - joined Lehouck. With two laps to go, he tried his luck down the descent at Essay. Hedouin defended well into the last lap and won the Coupe de France ahead of Lehouck. Florian Venturi finished third in a lonely position, while the chasing pack eventually stretched out. Schmit secured fourth place ahead of Landemaine, Vromant and Leuillet. Adrien Renaudin had made good progress and finished off in eighth position ahead of Simmenauer and Antonucci.

A timid start for Gabriel Aubry (Birel-TM) in the KF3 final did not prevent him from winning with panache, as he did on Saturday. Esteban Ocon (FA Kart-Vortex) was, however, on his heels, but Aubry successively overtook Jeremy Demarque (Sodi-Parilla) and François Becamel (Kosmic-Parilla) - after a very good start - to return at a breakneck pace to the leader. After watching his opponent, he launched a fierce attack and went ahead. Aubry was running an average of three tenths faster than everyone and successfully leading.
Behind Ocon was overtaken by a close platoon of Becamel, Demarque and Besancenez with Hubert Petit (Sodi-Parilla) nearby. One felt that things could happen, but the pack remained calm. Paolo Besancenez (Sodi-Parilla) was launching hostilities on Demarque with two laps to go. But he was too late for the podium, with Ocon - the 2011 French Champion - and Becamel 2nd and 3rd positions in front of three Sodi-Parillas. A second group finished much later, with Dorian Boccolacci (Birel-TM) from the 7th placed Belgian Haublin Thibaut (Kosmic-Parilla).
