A young driver just 15 years old, Frenchman Dorian Boccolacci had a very good season in 2013 in KF before trying the KZ2 category. At Varennes, in only his second race in the 125 gearbox class, gave his victory special value.
"I had only done two days of testing and participated in a race in KZ2 in Italy before arriving at Varennes. I quickly adapted to the power and speed changes in this category, but I still lacked a bit of experience for specific lines and overtaking. All this came easily during testing. I know the Varennes track and my team, Energy Corse, did a very good job. I must admit that the TM prepared by Bruno Daldosso was diabolical!
"I was in on it from qualifying with the seventh fastest time, but I had a transmission problem in the first heat. Fortunately, I was then able to win the other five without incident. I felt more comfortable and I was able to impose in the prefinal. In the final, it was not easy. I was long in second, then it started to heat up as we approached the finish. I followed the new leader for some time before the attack two laps from the chequered flag. It was very emotional for me to win an international race in a new class. Of course, I was hoping for a good result at Varennes, but the victory was still the stuff of dreams! "
