WSK: CRG, MAXTER AND THONON WINNERS AT SALBRIS

Thanks to driver Jonathan Thonon, CRG-Maxter gained a superb victory in KZ2, on the Salbris track. "I am very happy with this success, especially after the small troubles I had in qualifiers" the Belgian driver commented. "I was only 15th on Saturday morning, but I reacted quickly, together with the whole team. During the three heats, I returned to top positions and each time I set the best time in race. Then, my objective was to win on Sunday to prove the competitiveness of my equipment".

In the pre-final, Jonathan Thonon continued his extraordinary progression and finished second, with a new recor d lap in his pocket. In the final, he managed to improve his times even more and showed his absolute leadership, helped by top-performance equipment. "My CRG chassis and Maxter engine were fantastic. This is a good omen for the end of the WSK series, and in particular for the World Cup for KZ1, in September".
