Gregory Rasse leads the field through Eau Rouge in race one

Gregory Rasse used the high-speed Spa-Francorchamps circuit to break his Lotus Cup Europe duck, with a brace of victories in the V6-powered Evora, the first for a privateer entrant. The Belgian was challenged in both encounters, initially by a strong charge from Jean-Baptiste Meusnier in the first race. The Exige class winner overcame Christophe Lisandre’s 2-Eleven, Thierry Verhiest’s Evora, John Rasse’s Exige and Xavier George’s 2-Eleven in a close battle, proving the competitiveness of each class within the series.

The second encounter’s standing start gave Georges and Meusnier the chance to fight back but despite the V6’s heavier weight, Gregory was able to overcome both by the flag. Britons David Harvey and Craig Denman claimed the Open and Production class spoils respectively.
