Andrew Ranger: Third Victory In A Row At The GP3R.
The crowd favorite, Andrew Ranger, was sitting on pole before the start of the NASCAR Canadian Tire series at the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres.
Everything seemed to be perfect for the driver from Roxton Pond but a contact with J.R. Fitzpatrick during the third lap relagated Ranger to the ninth place.
After the minor incident, the crowd was concerned about Ranger's chances and thought that this third win in a row would never materialize. But Andrew fought back and started his comeback towards the front of the field.
Then, after the second caution flag of the event, Ranger dove inside his opponents in turn 1 and took back the first place for good. The crowd saluted Ranger's combativity in loud fashion all around the circuit until the end of the race.
Andrew Ranger crossed the finish line in first place, his third consecutive victory in Trois-Rivieres. J.R. Fitzpatrick and D.J. Kennington completed this 2010 GP3R podium.
Once again we had perfect weather all weekend long. The festivities were memorable all weekend long and the event organization can claim a huge success once again this year.
Congratulations Andrew and see you in 2011 in Trois-Rivieres!
