RB Team driver Jacky Mouton made the perfect start to the opening round of the French National Championships over the weekend securing the TQ position with his Serpent 720 \'08.

Racing at the Toulouse track with 88 drivers in attendance Mouton was the fastest man in the qualifying heats secured the pole from the Xray of Arnaud Chaussard.

Rain before the final meant a wet track for the big race. Originally set to be a 45-minute encounter this was reduced to 30-minutes account of the poor track conditions which saw 2 drivers opt not to run.

Unfortunately Mouton was not to has a good final crossing the finish line in 6th position just in front of fellow Serpent 720 driver Michaël Derdérian. While a disappointing out come to the weekend, Mouton has shown his 720 \'08 has the pace and you can be sure that the French ace will bounce back at the second round in April.
