FFSA GT Preview – Magny-Cours
Outclassing everyone since Albi, Bruno Besson and David Hallyday (Force One Viper) are in the lead of the FFSA GT Championship for the first time this season, after the recent Le Mans round. Motivated more than ever in the Force One Racing home ground, both men intend to take advantage of their knowledge of the Magny-Cours circuit to make ‘the difference’.


dailysportscar.comHowever, this season we have been used to many developments, so the win is far certain for the Force One pairing. VBM, with Patrick Bornhauser and Olivier Thévenin, and Larbre Compétition, with Sébastien Dumez and Jean-Luc Blanchemain (right), will do everything to claim the coveted title with their Vipers. The three line-ups have duly prepared for this last round, and even if the pressure will be a little stronger, the drivers' motivation should lead to exchanges even more heated than usual. The first race should clarify the situation, and the winning pairing will take a big step forward the title, but however that may turn out, the last race will likely decide everything.

The leaders will also have to deal with other contenders very much on form recently, such as Dupuy / Fiat in the DDO Saleen, Beltoise / Lacroix-Wasover (Lease Plan Autovitesse Viper) and the Mirabeau armada. Even if they cannot claim the title now, all these entrants will do their best to finish the season with a flourish.

Morgan Moulin-Traffort and Thierry Rabineau believed they could have claimed the N-GT title at Le Mans, but the race results ensured that they didn’t. Being 17.5 pts ahead of Mouez / Prunet, the Nourry Compétition drivers have just to score some points to be the first N-GT Trophy winners ever. For this last round, the Almeras Team will be back, Marc Sourd and Pierre Martinet racing again with their favourite team, at the wheel of a Porsche 911 GT3-RS.
