“It’s a refreshing victory,” Tagliani said. The day before we were looking for a way to improve the car’s handling and the team made some productive changes. “

For Tagliani, the race likely started after his pit stop, where he went out in front of Louis-Philippe Dumoulin to take the front row.

“It was the turning point in the race,” he replies. But, frankly, it wasn’t easy. There were drivers behind them who wanted to win as much as I did.”

Lacroix doesn’t seem to be disappointed with third place, although he had a good chance of winning as well.

“I had a hard time changing gear at the end of the race,” the Saint-Eustache driver explained. The second report was a rebel. It was a shame, because the car was so efficient. The last raise removed any hope of fighting for the win, because when the green flag was waved, the drivers hit me behind and that annoyed me. “

Starting in pole position, the event’s favorite Louis-Philippe Dumoulin led the first 12 laps of the race before slowing due to brake issues and a slight touch with Lacroix. He reached fifth place in fifth place.
