XB8 on podium at the Efra GP in France
Arrived on Friday for the free practice, I came right from the NeoBuggy and started with the same setup but it wasn't good choice, during the practice I tried a lot of different things and until the car felt good, after the reseeding I was in 4th place.
Saturday, the first qualifying was tough, I don't know why but my car was more difficult to drive than on Friday and then also the rain came in, after 6 qualification runs I finished 3rd.
Sunday, the final; during the semifinals the car was much better than Saturday and easy to drive, in semis I took a clean start right behind Reno Savoya, I led the semis with a good fight with Reno but a little mistake in the last lap cost me the number one on the grid ! In finals I changed my tires, which made my car little slower but easier to drive, after 45minutes and a good fight during the last minutes with Jérôme Sartel I finished 3rd at 14 seconds of the leader.
