Buildbase Honda`s French star Nico Aubin took a double win in the French Championship this weekend at Villars Sous Ecot. This also gave Honda a 1-2-3 in both the MX1 and the Super Final.
The MX1 race saw Nico storm out of the gate on this fantastic French circuit and briefly occupy second spot only to jump into the lead and pull away to a comfortable win with a 45 second lead at the flag. Second place went to Jason Clermont (Honda) with Cedric Soubeyras (Honda) in third.
The Super Final is a mixture of the top 20 MX2 racers with the top 20 from MX1, Aubin however made this Super Final hard for him-self, getting a poor start which left him at the back of the pack with a battle on his hands. By the time the two lap board had come out, the on-form Buildbase Honda racer was leading and took his second win of the day from series leader Soubeyras and Clermont once again.
Due to clashes with Nico`s British Championship commitments, he now lies third in the French MX1 class standings and fifth in the open Super Final standings.
The next French Championship round is at the spectacular St.Jean D`angely circuit on 12th May, however, Nico will be fighting for glory in the UK at the ACU Maxxis British Championship round at Milton Park, Northants.
See you there.
