Game, set and compare: Teddy Clairet is the French FFSA Tour Champion!


Considered the favorite at the start of the season, Teddy Clairet will not have left any worries about the FFSA Tour de France 2022. With 12 wins and the most placings in 12 races, the driver from Clamart (Île-de-France) returned a full report completely in the first four events of the season.

At the age of 28, he celebrates his 10th motorcycle season with a first FFSA French Championship title, also winning the 50,000 euro purse promised to the champion and advancing to the French FFSA GT Championship. ” I’m happy, we respected the plan, sometimes we had a little success and here I am, the champion a little earlier than we thought at first. “, he just slipped down the stage. If he hasn’t talked about the future yet, there is no doubt that the new champion and his assistants already have some ideas in mind.

Therefore, the only doubts at the end of the season will be about the places of honor. Despite retiring at the end of the third race, Vincent Bouteiller (Peugeot 308 RC #12 – JSB Compétition) had the best performance in pursuit of the silver medal. Two seconds at the start of the weekend, the 18-year-old young driver, protected from the Endurance sector, gains confidence and maturity during each weekend.

After, like Albi, being able to taste the joy of the podium thanks to the 3rd place in race 2, Jean-Mathieu Leandri (BMW M2 CS Racing #18 – VSF Sports – Amplitude Automobile) also scored important points in Belgium. The former rally driver took advantage of a difficult weekend for Sébastien Thome (Peugeot 308 RC #19 – Team Clairet Sport), far behind on the starting grid after making a mistake during qualifying practice. With 4th place as the best result, the fastest restaurant in FFSA Tourisme saw a temporary podium in the championship elude him. However, he still has two events, in Lédenon and at the Circuit Paul Ricard, to take revenge.

Fast but unlucky in the first two races, Julien Jacob-Cano (Peugeot 308 RC #77 – Terre & Mer Performance by JSB) finally got his revenge on Sunday at the end of the day by finishing the third race in second place, the best. seasonal results.

With their car for the first time after participating in the Ropars Peugeot 308 RC Championship at Magny-Cours and Albi, father and son Beltramellis knew perfectly well how to pull chestnuts out of the fire during a very exciting race. A day before his 59th birthday, José Beltramelli finished the long race in 3rd place on Saturday evening before being matched by his son, Brady, in the final race of the weekend.

Even if they didn’t make it to the podium, other drivers ensured their part of the festival. We are thinking of the Belgian Jérôme Heinen (Peugeot 308 RC #37 – JSB Compétition), Mickaël Alaurent (Peugeot 308 RC #85 – Micka Racing) and the duo Florian Teillais – Benoit Eveillard (BMW M2 CS Vde Sports #41 Ampli Sports #41 Magari), all having finished in the top 5 at least once this weekend. Without the penalty for the touch in the last race, Carla Debard (BMW M2 CS Racing #21 – Debard Automobiles by Racetivity) could have done the same.

In the TCA-2 category, Enzo Carvalhido (Renault Clio Cup IV #36 – Sport Auto Racing) won two out of three races, but Bastien Girard (Renault Clio Cup IV #76 of the Perftech team with Eva Mondou) managed. denying him full marks for winning the second fight.

In the TCA-Light category featuring the Peugeot 208 RC, Jean Pat Racing duo Vincent Vevres and Thomas Compain fought a fierce battle. Vincent always had the last word, but it was hot! Behind, Margot Carvalhido and Frédéric Rondeau (Peugeot 208 RC – Sport Auto Racing) and Olivier Thenaisy (Peugeot 208 RC – Ropars Racing) also reached the Spa-Francorchamps podium.

After this trip to Belgium, the French FFSA Touring Championship will return to soil from September 9 to 11 during the Lédenon GT Series.
