Second pole for Sendin



It was overcast at Varennes, but the sun was trying to break through and confound the forecast for more rain for the day.


Victor Sendin (Tony Kart / Vortex) did not let anyone deny him pole position on Sunday morning in KF2, with over 100 km / h average speed. His teammate Remy Deguffroy followed suit ahead of Leo Roussel (Sodi / Parilla) and especially Anthoine Hubert who it was good to see in 4th. The two Spaniards Carlos Gil (Tony Kart / Vortex) and Jordi Oriola (FA Kart / Vortex) took 5th and 6th place ahead of De Ridder, Réguillon, Baron and Vermeylen.

Weber confirmed in the final

Again in the final the main competitors were those from the prefinal, Morgan Weber (Merlin / TM), Mathieu Gaillard (Energy / TM), Thomas Mich (Birel / TM) and Anthony Abbasse (Sodi / Maxter). Weber missed the start, so leading was Gaillard with Mich at his heels. Abbasse lost time behind Weber, he was 5th behind Yuri Lucati (BRM / TM). Mich was not slow to take the lead ahead of Weber who was recovering fast. Abbasse fell to 9th place. Tony Lavanant (PCR / TM), despite being ill, was fighting in 7th position behind Pierre Ragues (Sodi / Maxter).

Weber took the lead ahead of Gaillard and Mich who spun, dodged a collision and was fleeing for his life. Lavanant went in the gravel trap with Vincent Fraïsse (Intrepid / TM) and Abbasse. Yan Pesce (BRM / TM) was in 3rd place ahead of teammate Lucati, Ragues was fifth, Charles Fiault (Sodi / Maxter) 6th. The top two, Weber and Gaillard, were fighting but getting away from their pursuers. We were only halfway through the race.




Weber began to attack the other kart who resisted strongly. In 7th, Julien Goupy (BRM / TM) advanced more than 4s from his pursuers. Pesce tried to attack Lucati to get on the podium. Gaillard was stalled for a few laps, but took advantage of Pesce, for third, but it did not last. It was unclear who could deny Morgan Weber of victory and the interest of the race switched to the battle between Gaillard / Pesce for 2nd place. On the last lap, the doors closed but Pesce was open, followed Lucati. Gaillard finished 4th in front of Fiault and Goupy while Ragues retired a few hundred meters from the finish.

It took a while for the many KF3 littering the runway to be cleared and for the KF2 drivers to take the stage for their final with Victor Sendin (Tony Kart / Vortex) and Leo Roussel (Sodi / Parilla) on the front row. Sendin was on course for a good result, but he overshot the first corner and went through the gravel trap. Alex Baron (Sodi / Parilla) got ahead, but Enzo Guibbert (FA Kart / Vortex) completed the first lap in the lead. Roussel was third in front of Jordi Oriola (FA Kart / Vortex) and the Ukrainian Daniil Pronenko (Birel / TM). Sendin was 15th, but several drivers were missing: Réguillon, Filippi, Gonzales, Lepesqueux, De Ridder, and Sebastian Segond, who injured his arm during the pre-final.


Roussel took the lead, spurred on by Baron and Guibbert. Further bak Oriola was quietly in 4th place, well away from Victor Compere (FA Kart / Vortex) and Kenny Vermeylen (Tecno / Parilla) up from 28th place. Enzo Guibbert took the lead, while the intense duel between Roussel and Baron continued. Pascal Belmaaziz (DR / Parilla) was in the top 10 briefly, soon replaced by Alexandre Benoit Bessac (Kosmic / Vortex) in 9th position. Another change of leadership, Roussel led on lap 10 from Baron and Guibbert. He pulled out a narrow lead ahead of his two opponents who were in the middle of a fight. Anthoine Hubert (Sodi / Parilla), was now almost in the top 10.




Compere had the fastest lap with an incredible 54''003, but Baron and Guibbert competed in the top group. Baron was also faster than Roussel and Guibbert and always looked like he could win. Baron impeccably attacked Roussel on the last lap, Guibbert tried to follow and Roussel was down to 3rd. The race was finished! Alex Baron won the race ahead of Guibbert and Roussel. Compere was fourth, Vermeylen fifth, Dupont 6th, Gil 7th.

Esteban Ocon was taken at the first corner by  five drivers led by Fran Rueda. Benjamin Gerard (Tony Kart / Vortex) was second ahead of Alex Palou and Paolo Besancenez (Sodi / Parilla). Ocon come back strongly in 4th place while the battle raged on and Gerard took the lead then Palou. Ocon suddenly found himself second behind Palou. Simon Tirman (Tony Kart / Vortex) was faster than teammate Gerard.


Besancenez managed to take Ocon to gain 2nd place. At this time, on lap 5, Dorian Boccolacci (Birel / BMB) had already taken 30 places and was 11th. Tirman stalled, Gerard took over fourth ahead of Valentin Naud (Tony Kart / Vortex) and Valentin Moineault (Sodi / Parilla), also up from the bottom of the grid. There was a fastest lap for Besancenez, currently second and very close to the leader. Ocon could not stay with the two drivers. Boccolacci was now 7th in mid-race.




Fastest on the track was Paolo Besancenez behind Alex Palou, planning an attack nearer the end, to be continued ... Moineault attacked Tirman which did little to please him. Last Lap: Besancenez passed under braking near the pylon, held off the reply from Palou and crossed the line first, the first victory in his first Championship final in KF3 in France. There was an explosion of joy in the Sodi team managed by Antonio Rodriguès.


Palou remained second, third was Ocon; Gerard finished 4th, Naud 5th, Tirman 6th, a combined attack by the TKF team. Boccolacci took 7th place.
