The Tour Auto 2020 ended on a very positive note for Gipimotor this Saturday afternoon at the Circuit Paul Ricard.
Constantly fighting for the final podium, the French Damien Kohler and Sylvie Laboisne - who were in their 20th participation - indeed finished the event in 3rd position in the general classification, in the wake of the Jaguar Type E of Raphael Favaro and Luciano Nicolet on the one hand, Jean-Pierre Lajournade and Christophe Bouchet on the other. “We lost a bit of time during two specials, otherwise this ranking could have been even better,” commented Damien Kohler. "As far as our competitors are forewarned, this year we wanted to experience the Cobra, and next year we will be back to win! "
In Group G which was rich in twists and turns, Philippe Vandromme and Frédéric Vivier brought the only Ford GT40 from the field to port, to finally reap the silver cup in the category. “And it was not easy, because it was very hot, and this GT40 is definitely very wide for the stages that were offered,” comments Philippe Vandromme. "We played the combine a lot, but we held on, and the result is to match! "
Therefore, it was with a double podium that Gipimotor completed this Tour Auto 2020. Congratulations to the Peter Auto teams for having been able to carry out such an organization in the current context.
