2018 Alpine A110 Cup At Le Castellet Paul Ricard – Video
Thanks to two exhilarating races with numerous overtakes, the Alpine Elf Europa Cup put on a spectacular show for the fans at Circuit Paul Ricard! Pierre Sancinéna and Vincent Beltoise (CMR) made history in scoring the first victories in the return of the Alpine single-make series after a thirty year absence, while Nicolas Milan (Milan Compétition) finishes the day atop the general classification.
A successful return
It was at the end of the 1988 season that the Alpine Europa Cup – contested with V6 Turbo powered GTAs – ran its final race at Circuit Paul Ricard. Thirty years later, the story began again at the same track, with a field of colourful A110 Cup cars, attracting the public’s curiosity and admiration.
As early as free-practice, all the drivers were unanimous in their praise of the agility and performance of the car on the circuit that will soon host the French Formula 1 Grand Prix. Some even said they rediscovered the pleasure of driving!
