Lotus Cup Europe – Round 1 race report

Jon Walker was ready to continue his great Nürburgring form in Lotus Cup Europe last weekend but the Eiffel snow wasn’t the only spoiler, as 2-Eleven convert Xavier Georges took pole position as the drivers adapted well to the arctic conditions.

However Walker regrouped to take the race one win, despite a spin that had looked set to hand victory to Gregory Rasse’s Evora. Georges took third place and full advantage of Walker’s problems in race two, however fuel starvation problems on the final lap handed a great win to John Rasse’s Exige, who led his brother home, with Italian visitor Nechhi completing the podium.

Two close contests could also be found in the Production class, where Matt Bartlett and Nigel Ayres claimed the honours.
