Rain Stops Play For The FR V6
As the 20 participants in Sunday's Super Sprint (minus Danielsson and Sandström (SRTS) were lined up and ready for the green light, the rain started falling and soon turned into a tremendous storm.
The race was halted mid-way through the sighting lap by the Race Direction, the teams bringing their cars in to fit them with rain tyres. The race Director made two laps of Magny-Cours to check the safety conditions trackside, before giving the OK to get proceedings underway once more.
The race was finally started behind the Safety-Car, but on lap four the Race Direction deemed the conditions too unsafe and took the decision to call the cars back in definitively.
The results for the afternoon's outing were established on the basis of the standings on lap 2. As 75% of the total race distance was not covered, the first 10 drivers will therefore be awarded just half the normal points. Mondini (EuroInternational) keeps the extra two points for taking pole position, and also the "win", with Bruce Lorgere Roux (Dams) and Proetto (EuroInternational) completing a very wet podium. <pre> Race Classification 1) Mondini 6'13''366 2) Lorgere Roux 0'413 3) Proetto 0'918 4) Barth 2'043 5) Kerr 3'163 6) Van Lagen 3'596 7) Bell 4'971 8) Sharp 5'115 9) Belicchi 6'308 10) Jani 6'828
