A great drive from third on the grid saw Don’t touch racing driver André Kursim take his second win of the 2021 season. 

With the sun shining brightly on the Le Mans Bugatti Circuit, Shane Brereton led the field away for 11 green laps to finish off the racing in France. The group bunched together off the start, but Brereton managed to hold his own ahead of the three main championship rivals. 

But it was Kursim who was on the charge as he took advantage and dashed past Brereton, claiming an unchallenged first for the rest of the race. He finished 1.4s ahead of Brereton to take his second win of the 2021 season. 

Brereton defended from Adam Lacko, Sascha Lenz and Norbert Kiss to take second overall and also the win in the GOODYEAR Cup. 

Kiss couldn’t pass either of his championship rivals, racing hard with Lenz to take another point in the championship. Both Lenz and Kiss were nose to tail, with the two coming together a few times to inflict damage on each other’s trucks. 

Lacko got dragged into the fight towards the end of the race, and all three the drivers’ traded positions for three laps. At the chequered flag, Lacko took the last step of the podium, with Lenz managing to keep Kiss behind. 

Jochen Hahn made good progress up the grid, finishing sixth behind the fighting trio and ahead of Stephanie Halm, Antonio Albacete and René Reinert.

The second-place finisher in the Goodyear Cup, Steffen Faas, finished off the top ten, with Jamie Anderson completing the podium.

Luke Garrett, Luis Recuenco and Heinrich Hecker rounded out the final classification.

The wait is only a week until the FIA European Truck Racing Championship returns to the track, heading to Spain to race on the Jarama Circuit for the penultimate round of the season.
