Hello everyone, hope you had a great weekend! I had a good time in Val Thorens for the first round of the 2017/18 Trophée Andros.

Joining the Comtoyou Racing team means that we have a very impressive car! Powered by a 3-litre V6, the Audi A1 Quattro Ice has been adapted for the challenge with the addition of four-wheel drive and steering, a six-speed sequential gearbox, weighing just over 1000 kg including the driver, and running on special Yokohama spiked tyres.

Despite it being the first ice-race for the team this season, we made the Super Pole for both races, setting the fourth fastest time in Saturday’s session, after being fastest in the second qualifying round. In the first race, we finished in fifth place, before going one better on Sunday, just off the podium. Because of our consistent results, I now sit third in the Drivers’ Championship, which is a great start, and I hope to continue this kind of form in the second round at Alpe d’Huez this weekend!

A big thank you to the whole team for this great performance!
