Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene -

Reign­ing An­dros Tro­phy cham­pion Jean-bap­tiste Dubourg suc­cess­fully de­fended his crown at the win­ter se­ries’ finale in Su­per Besse last week­end.

The Euro­pean Rallycross Championship reg­u­lar, who will move up to the FIA World Rallycross Championship full­time this sea­son with his fam­ily-run DA Rac­ing team, fin­ished third over­all and se­cond on track in the fi­nal round be­hind ti­tle pro­tag­o­nist and mul­ti­ple cham­pion Jean-philippe Dayraut.

The re­sult was enough for Dubourg, driv­ing a Re­nault Clio 3 sil­hou­ette, to win the ice tro­phy for the se­cond year in a row. Dayraut fin­ished se­cond in the points in a BMW M2 with for­mer For­mula 1 race win­ner Oliver Pa­nis third over­all in an Audi A1.

“This se­cond ti­tle is the re­ward of many months of hard work,” said Dubourg. “It was nec­es­sary to fight un­til the very end where ev­ery­thing played out at the last race. The hard­est thing to over­come this win­ter was the level of com­pe­ti­tion; gen­er­ally, five or six driv­ers were able to fight for vic­tory.”
