The Trophee Andros’ new all-electric ice rally car, the Andros Sport 01, took its second win in Andorra on Friday, with Franck Lagorce winning the first of two races in the Pyrenees.

Lagorce beat two internal combustion engine-powered cars to take victory by 2.6 seconds in Friday’s final, finishing ahead of Didier Thoral and Jean-Baptiste Dubourg.

The other electric cars in the field finished fourth and eighth, with Aurelien Panis, who won the opening round at Val Thorens earlier this month, ahead of Nico Prost.

Lagorce and ABB FIA Formula E Championship race winner Prost each drive standard Andros Sport 01s, while Panis’ features a silhouette Audi A1 body shell.

The second round of the weekend was won by Dubourg’s Renault Captur, in the first win of the season for gasoline-powered cars.

Panis leads the championship, which takes into account results from qualifying and Super Pole as well as the final races, with 180 points.

Ferrier Wins Enedis Electric Trophy, Laurent Guest Stars

Christophe Ferrier made it three wins in three so far this season in the Enedis Andros Electric Trophy junior class, which features identical all-electric cars.

He led the way in both days’ running after doing the same at Val Thorens two weeks ago, and leaves Andorra with 110 points to closest challenger Vincent Beltoise’s 96.

Rebellion Racing LMP1 regular Thomas Laurent made an appearance as a guest driver in one of the Enedis cars, along with Olympic skiing gold medalist Perrine Laffont.

Laurent finished third in Saturday’s race, finishing just 3.1 seconds behind Ferrier.

Trophee Andros will be back in action on Jan 11-12 at Isola 2000 in the Alps, near the French-Italian border.
