Its rare to find the likes of David Ronnefalk & Reno Savoya with a weekend ‘off’ from their chosen professions – RC Racing. However that was the case as HB’s D815-rocking duo headed to the beautiful Pierrefeu track in Provence countryside in S.France to do a bit of hardcore testing ahead of a European Championships in Italy that they go into with a bit of pressure on their robust shoulders.

It’s no secret Bertin is well-renowned for his encyclopaedic Yoda-like setup knowledge not to mention ‘his’ engine guru-ness.
