F18: Backes-Vandame win season opener at Bray Dunes

Photo: Pierrick Contin --- For local catracing news around the world, you only have one place, here...where else you are going to check? I tried to find info on the 2012 Bray Dunes regatta in France, but couldn´t , go figure...
Olivier Backes and Mathiew Vandame, who is replacing Arnaud Jarlegan this season,  had an excellent debut together aiming for a season that will end at LA Worlds in September.

I already have my bet for this year, and beyond Backes is already in the Bundy-Mischa-Coen level (ahead of the rest and no Nostradamus needed to bet on them) my selection has not been announced yet.


Some good competition at Bray Dunes with Coen-Thijs, Manu-Bastian, Bontemps-Amiot and others. Nice mix also of designs with the Cirrus R fighting and the 'old good' Infusion always performing. The Infusion has become now the Tiger of its generation as I posted some years ago, although it has lots more competition it is a design that will stand and perform for the same period the Tiger did at top level.
