The Poincelet-Rivière team describes the competition...
"This weekend, we quickly took the lead after the second special. The battle was intense and the speeds reached this weekend were exhilarating. One of the main satisfactions was to validate this smaller engine, which is able to compete and overtake the most powerful cars on the fast stages.
We finished in the top 3 and realized 2 scratches (best time) which put us 9 seconds ahead on Saturday. Unfortunately towards the end of the last special an oil hose suddenly split over 10cms, spilling oil into the engine and the passenger compartments.
We tried a makeshift repair in the hope of reaching the pit but the oil pressure continued falling and we had to stop. "
