" Good weekend for me with great performance. I finish the season on the third step of the podium. A lot of emotion on the Race 4. I want to thank each member of the Lion Truck Racing. Now, see you in ETRC!"



"Very happy with our season. We started with Téo (Calvet) three years ago and he had never driven before, he quickly progressed. This year, he finished Champion of France of the Junior category and third overall, it was unexpected three years ago. He goes to a Team in ETRC and we knew how to train him, to teach him our know-how and he managed like a leader! I'm really happy with him. Same thing for Anthony (Janiec), when we started with him he had a reputation for loving contact on track. With us he knew how to control this and he proved to us this weekend that he knows how to manage his races perfectly. He ended the season with a win and proved once again that he deserves his title. We have a team that has built an exceptional truck, mechanics and all the technical team that is very motivated to get more reliability and performance. A team around with the shop, the logistic, the communication, they all did an amazing job. We are not only N. 1 on the track, I'm really proud of the team... Thank you all!"



"Good weekend for the Lion Truck Racing! We controlled the two first races to get this new title and feel better on Sunday. The two last race were more interesting, drivers kept pushing until the final lap of the season for an amazing Race 4. It was an amazing weekend which concludes an amazing season: two drivers, two titles."
