Draco Team on Podium with Baguette in the first race of the championship

An excellent start for Bertrand Baguette, who had promised great emotions for the 2009 season in the World Series Renault championship.

This morning both Draco drivers came into Superpole, the turn on track reserved for the first 6 drivers in each group to decide the starting grid. With 1'33 "256, Bertrand Baguette won the 6th place and respecting the rules of World Series Renault championship, which provides the inverted position in Race 1 for the first 8 arrived in Superpole, the Belgian has seen the turn off of the red traffic lights to the third position.

With a fast and calculated start, Baguette has shifted to the right, and just after the first corner, he has overtaken Valles positioning himself in the second place behind Martinez. Throughout the race, which lasted 44 minutes plus one lap, the driver of Draco Team has not yielded to the attacks of Valles and he has always maintained his position winning the 2nd step of the podium.

A great satisfaction for the Belgian who has all the intention of being one of the greatest drivers of the season and it seems that he has kept his promises to all supporters of Draco Team. It's a pity for Marco Barba, he is started 10th, he won some positions, but then he has had to withdraw from the competition.

"I am very satisfied - Baguette said after the race - but this is only the beginning. I want to give my best in every race and I know that with my determination and the Draco car, we can do everything!"

The race of World Series was seen by millions of people worldwide on Eurosport, the largest network of sports television on satellite, available in Italy on Sky. Tomorrow Eurosport will replicate with Race 2 live at 13:00.
