Antoine Bessette fastest time at the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières

Running for the first time of the year in the canadian Formula Ford 1600 Championship (whith Team Keymotorsport) on a track that he had not seen before, rookie Antoine Bessette (Elan International) signed the fastest lap of the week-end in 1.11.71 minute.

Starting in 6th position after mecanical problems in the qualifications, Antoine jumped three places right at the start of the race. Then the three first cars put a big gap between them and the rest of the pack. The three cars were running like they were welded together. The battle was epic. Antoine tried many times to pass by the very experienced Didier Schraenen but this one succeeded in closing the door every time. After a race neutralisation, Antoine was badlucked as he lost his third place right at the finish line.

"I had won over the track and I was feeling very much in control but my very experienced competitors did their job well and did not give me any occcasion to sneak in front. Good for them!"
