LARSSON WINS EURO CHAMPIONSHIP, NURIEV IN REACH OF S16 TITLE
Monday 2nd of September 2019
Sweden’s Robin Larsson scored his fourth win of the FIA European Rallycross Championship for Supercar season at the Bretagne World RX of France and in the process wrapped up the Euro RX title with a round to spare.
France’s Jean-Baptiste Dubourg took TQ (top qualifier) in his home round of the Championship and won semi-final one, after the race had to be re-started following an incident that meant Finland’s Miko Ikonen and Norway’s Thomas Bryntesson were unable to take the restart. Larsson won semi-final two then took the hole shot in the final to beat Dubourg to turn one and take the win. Dubourg finished second in front of his home fans and Hungary’s Tamas Karai completed the podium.
French Champion star Antoine Masse took P4, as Germany’s Rene Muennich and France’s Andrea Dubourg crashed out at turn 2. Because Bryntesson didn’t make it into the final, and Larsson took nearly maximum points, the 2014 Euro RX Champion secured his second title before the final round of the season in Riga.
In Euro RX Super1600, Germany RX winner Yuri Belevskiy was quickest in Q1 and Q2 and took TQ in the Intermediate Classification, in front of Championship leader Aydar Nuriev, from Russia. In the final, Nuirev stormed to victory in the Volland Racing Audi A1. After all of the joker laps had been taken, Russia’s Arthur Egerov tried to overtake Hungary’s Gergely Marton, at turn two but Belevskiy capitalised and climbed to third, which ended up being second at the finish line when Marton lost ground with a puncture in the final corner and dropped to fifth, between home heroes Maximilien Eveno and Jimmy Terpereau. Nuriev needs to score one point from the Riga season finale to win the title.
