Edouard Hugon wins Agde GP

Hugon

Nemo Racing’s new recruit, Edouard Hugon, has started his NEMO/Agama career with a win at the recent Agde GP. In cold, but dry conditions, Edouard was able to qualify in second place while learning his new car and tyres, and was confident for the finals. The finals were of a slightly different format to the usual nitro racing style, with three 12 minute races.

Edouard was second in a close fight with Rayan Medjoubi in the first final, and then he would go on to dominate the second as he settled into a great rhythm and set some fast laps. The third and final race saw a fight back from Medjoubi, but Edouard was able to raise the level, and keep his Agama/BETA package at the front to take the win.
