More Aussies In Action At Pau: Formula Renault LIVE

More Aussies in action on the streets of Pau tonight with Luis Leeds, Alex Peroni, Zane Goddard and Thomas Maxwell all in action in the Formula Renault Series.

Robert Shwartzman (R-ace GP) was the man to beat in practice, his time of 1:13.870, led from Henrique Chaves (AVF by Adrián Vallés) with  Peroni (Fortec Motorsports) the quickest of the Australians.

In wet conditions, Sacha Fenestraz (Josef Kaufmann Racing) and Max Defourny (R-ace GP) were on top of the time sheet early along with Red Bull Junior Team driver Daniel Ticktum (Arden Motorsport). Max Fewtrell was the first to switch to slicks, but the session was stopped prematurely following the error of Richard Verschoor (MP Motorsport).

Alex Peroni clocked the fastest lap of the morning session with a time of 1:22.851. The Australian was followed by Sacha Fenestraz and fellow Aussie Zane Goddard (Arden Motorsport).

In the afternoon, Sacha Fenestraz made the most of the dryer conditions to lead Group A with a lap of 1:14.126. Max Defourny. Will Palmer (R-ace GP), rookie Yifei Ye (Josef Kaufmann Racing) and Daniel Ticktum completed the top five.

Despite the stoppage provoked by Zane Goddard, Group B was the faster of the two. Shwartzman set the benchmark time of the day in 1:13.870, ahead of Henrique Chaves, Alex Peroni and Tech 1 Racing’s Max Fewtrell and Gabriel Aubry.

Race One will be held Sunday morning at 1:30 AEST right here on In Pit Lane so break out the coffee and croissants.
