Report by Alexander Hagberg. - The 2022 edition of the famous GP3F event was held once again in Longwy, France. The race saw 130 entries in 3 different classes, with countries from all over Europe being represented. Our international XRAY team was in full attendance, with top drivers fighting for the win in every class.

In the competitive Expert Stock class, our French driver Alexandre Duchet set the early pace, securing TQ in 3 out of 4 qualifiers. Duchet went on to take two tone to tone wins in A1 and 2, which awarded him a much deserved win with his X4 chassis! We had the most represented car in the A-final, with Adam Iszay, David Ehrbar, Valentin Peuziat, Jacques Libar and Joe Streff also making the show for XRAY. This meant that 6 out of 10 cars in the main final were XRAY X4 cars, the most out of any manufacturer!

In the modified class, our Portuguese driver Bruno Coelho came really close to the overall TQ, only to lose out on a tie break. Bruno fought hard for the win in the finals, clearly showing a superior pace. Unfortunately, he didnt have the luck to move to the front this time, but secured a strong runner up position, after a win in A3! Bruno also set the2nd fastest lap after Antoine Brunet in the last qualifier before he touched the curb while leading. Antoine Brunet, Marco Kaufmann, myself, and Oliver Havranek secured the 5-6-7-8 positions. This meant that XRAY had 5 cars in the main final - the most out of all brands.
