Young Frenchman Nicolas Loriot has won his first VRC World title after already locking in a 2nd place in Spec class. Victory didn't come easy though. After a terrific start Nicolas jumped away from the field but a few small mistakes brought Peter Knight from the UK right back on his tail. During the 8 minute final Nicolas and Peter tossed places several times and with just 10 seconds on the clockit looked like Peter was going to seal a well deserved win but it wasn't to be. With just 4 corners to go Peter touched a corner marker which threw him of his line. Nicolas who was within striking distance immediately took advantage of the situation, dove inside and took the lead once more. Peter missed out on lap 27 so that was the end of his quest to become VRC World Champion.
The fight for the remaining podium place was fierce as well. On the finish line just 1.6 seconds separated nbr. 3 till 7 with Sports class racer Erik Bottosso from Italy taking 3rd amidst a strong field of Pro racers.
