CH Racing Husqvarna's Seb Guillaume has claimed is sixth double Enduro 3 class podium result of the '07 World Enduro Championship season, this time at the eighth and final round of this years WEC series staged in Noirtable, France.
Topping the competitive E3 class on day one to claim his first day win of the season Seb then went on to finish as runner-up to newly crowned E3 world champion Ivan Cervantes on day two to bring his '07 WEC campaign to an impressive close. A mixture of clear skies, warm temperatures, a demanding rock littered course and three challenging special tests resulted in the GP of France being one of the most physically demanding world championship races this year.
For Seb it was his best event of the championship as he finally managed to beat Spain's Ivan Cervantes and stand on top of the E3 class podium.Winning three special tests during the opening day things didn't start in the best of ways for the Frenchman as a poor opening extreme test saw him place fifth in class.
Forced to work his way back to the top of the class, after eighth special tests he finished just under eight seconds ahead of Cervantes. Despite hoping to repeat his class winning result from day one Seb was unable to match the pace of his closest E3 championship rival on day two and after another demanding day he finished as runner-up.
In doing so Seb secured the third place position in the '07 Enduro 3 world championship. Seb's E3 class team-mate Anders Eriksson produced much better results in France than he did at the GP of Slovakia as the seven-time world champion placed sixth in on day one before mistakes on the extreme test on day two saw him drop one position to seventh. Husqvarnas Enduro 1 class rider Bartosz Oblucki mad mixed results in France placing in fourth and seventh position.
Winning two special tests on day one Bart' was in contention for the E1 class win during much of first half of the day but narrowly missed out on a podium result. Eventually claiming fourth the Polish rider finished just six seconds behind Finland's Juha Salminen who claimed the '07 E1 class world championship title.
