The Montpellier GP has grown in popularity in the last few years, with the majority of the European elite in attendance it is traditionally the opening race of each season. 2011 was no different and interest very high due to the number of driver switches over the winter; the nVision engines had a great time in qualifying – Yannick Aigoin TQ’ing, but no one could match the pace of Jerome Aigoin in the final – after a good battle with Martin Bayer he had a comfortable lead until the end. The location in Montpellier offers good transport links (Montpellier airport 10 mins or Marseille) and hotels are very close. The track is ever changing according to weather – sometimes gripy sometimes slick, the 2011 layout had some technical sections and good jumps – a good mix and nice flow. The most defining feature has to be the two trees that stand inside the top corner. As popular as the race continues to be each season, considering the talent, remarkably few have had repeat success at the event, only Michel Farina back in 2004.
