Grant got the holeshot in the main, followed by Vuillemin, Cairoli and Renet while Pourcel crashed at the start! Stronger each night Vuillemin put the pressure on Grant, passed him during the third lap and got his second win in a row in one of his favourite stadium. “It was great to see so many fans cheering us, and that’s the secret of Bercy.

I want to thanks team NGS, if they didn’t offered me an engine after my problem in the first night I couldn’t race there,” said David. Josh Grant finally claimed a podium during this last night, with a second position in front of Pierre Alexandre Renet who surprised everyone this week-end !
