Yann Ehrlacher put on a dominant display in the Super Finale at Serre Chevalier on Saturday evening, setting him up to win the first of two e-Trophee Andros rounds this weekend.
Ehrlacher won the six-lap Super Finale by 11.578 seconds, a much larger margin than the narrow wins usually seen in the French ice racing championship.
He amassed 65 points during the course of the day in Qualifying, Super Pole and the Super Finale, taking the round win ahead of Jean-Baptiste Dubourg and Olivier Panis.
Ehrlacher drives one of Yvan Muller Racing’s standard Andros Sport 01s.
Dubourg and Panis also finished second and third in the Super Finale and the latter set the quickest time in Super Pole, but Ehrlacher still started the main race from pole owing to his performances in the earlier qualifying races.
Andreas Bakkerud, Aurelien Panis and Nathanael Berthon were the other drivers to make it into the Super Finale.
Quentin Giordano was the best of the rest, finishing seventh at the end of the day after taking victory in the Finale to decide the second half of the results.
Jeremy Sarhy won the Elite class in the Sebastien Loeb Racing Andros Sport 01 that he shares with Giordano, meanwhile.
Sarhy finished second in the second-tier class’ Super Finale, with Louis Gervoson taking victory, driving Aurelien Panis’ Audi A1.
Round 2 of the weekend takes place on Sunday, with the Super Finales finishing and results decided at around 2 p.m. local time (8 a.m. EST / 1 p.m. GMT).
