Driver Fébreau on top form in Bordeaux

EUROPEAN and British RX championship leaders Albatec Racing continued their dominant form at the weekend.

Canal+ Formula One reporter Julien Fébreau powered his Peugeot 208 supercar to fourth place in the French Rallycross Championship at Circuit Faleyras in Bordeaux on Sunday.
He clocked the fourth fastest time in heat one and sixth in heat two, earning fifth place in the intermediate standings.
And a superb drive in his final heat saw him power past the flag first, securing a place in the semi finals, before another strong drive bagged his place in the final.
Starting from the back row he steadily moved through the field, posting the fastest lap on the way, and finished fourth – less than three seconds adrift of the winner.
Team principal Andy Scott said: “What an amazing weekend it’s been. Julien has been an absolute pleasure to work with, he’s very professional, committed and fast, and it’s great to have seen him reach the final here in Faleyras.
“In the final he drove very well from the back of the grid, we really couldn’t have asked for better, and I’m really excited to see how he goes at the next event in Pont de Ruan next month.”
