Round #4, SPA FRANCORCHAMPS : July 28 & 29th
This weekend’s Peugeot 308 Racing Cup action in Belgium – as a curtain-raiser attraction ahead of the 2017 24 Hours of Spa – saw Julien Briché continue his domination of the series. The JSB Compétition driver took the meeting’s two victories to pull out an enviable cushion in the chase for the 2017 title.
- Exactly a year after making its competitive debut at Spa -Francorchamps, the Peugeot 308 Racing Cup was back in action this weekend at the notoriously selective and complex circuit in the Belgian Ardennes where its speed and competitiveness did not go unnoticed. The weekend’s fastest lap (2m33.380s) was posted by Julien Briché.
- Two pole positions and a brace of wins in Belgium helped Julien Briché to take a step closer to the inaugural 308 Racing Cup’s top prize. He has now won six of the eight races contested to date and is almost 50 points clear of his closest chaser, Teddy Clairet.
- In the Junior battles, Belgium’s Maxime Potty and French youngster Teddy Clairet scored a win apiece, while Christian Jaquillard pocketed both Gentleman Driver victories.
- The competition’s Belgian drivers were on form on home turf at Spa -Francorchamps. Frédéric Caprasse came fourth thanks to a spectacular run in the first race and Maxime Potty followed up his Junior triumph on Friday with fifth overall on Saturday
JULIEN BRICHE – JSB COMPETITION WINNER, RACES 1&2.
“It turned out to be a perfect weekend for me. I wasfastest in free practice, I started the two races frompole position and I went on to win them both. We’re inthe lead as things stand but a mistake can happen atany time. The important thing is to pocket the pointswhenever I can and keep giving it my very best shotright up to the very last round at Le Castellet. There’sstill a long way to go…”
