Positive: This is the the word to decribe the feeling of the Andros Car designers...: only one electrical failure during the week-end, 3 true races, with emotions and show!

Franck Lagorce: "It's a real pleasure to race in this car, I would really have won buta little problem put me out of the fight"

Olivier Pernaut: "I really have a lot of fun in this car!..."

Jean-Baptiste Dubourg: "It is really funny to drive!"

Stéphane Ortelli: "It took me a bit of time to get use to ice because it's my first time, but at the end of the week-end, I really feel to race in a race car, without thinking about electricity! It's really nice!"

Christophe Ferrier: "I've been in a Mitsu Rally Car all the season before coming here! It took me a bit of time to get used to the car, it's really tricky to drive, but now i think I found how to do it!!!"

Saturday the 5th of december 2009 - 11.30pm - Val Thorens Ice Racing Track...

This is in presence of the Industry French Minister Christian Estrosi, the Director of ANDROS Group, Frederic Gervoson and of course the creator of the Andros Trophy, Max Mamers that occures the first ever electrical race of the world.

8 cars on the grid, "track evcuation" board is shown to the mechanics and Engineers of Exagon Engineering, then the "engine board" that looks a bit strange for the electric series because no noise at all comes to disturb the mountains silence.

Then comes the "5 seconds" board" .....and the french flag is shown up by the Minister to start the race...we can here hissing the cars now!!!

On the first lane, "JB" Dubourg who got the pole position on the ANDROS, starts faster than Marlène Broggi on the NORAUTO but it's been really tough as she decided to use the "Launch Control" and not Dubourg.

After them, the battle is hard, with a beautiful start of our development driver, Franck Lagroce on the PICARD, victim of a his machine during the qualifyings.

We can see really beautifull fights during the whole race, for every places, and at the end of the 10-laps race, "JB" passes the finish line on 1st position, then comes Marlène, "Nico" Prost, Olivier Pernaut, Christophe Ferrier and Laurent Wolf, as Stéphane Ortelli and Franck Lagorce did not finish the race.
