Two weeks to go to the AUDI Medcup Marseille Trophy
[Source: AUDI Medcup] Preparations by the Audi MedCup GP42 and TP52 teams and by venue hosts are continuing as the second Audi MedCup event of the 2010 season looms on the horizon. The Marseille Trophy starts with the official practice race for the TP52 Series on Tuesday 15th June.
While Emirates Team New Zealand (NZL) won the first regatta of the season last month in Cascais, there was a promising showing from Jochen Schuemann (GER), Sebastien Col (FRA) and the French-German team on AudiA1 powered by ALL4ONE who finished second. On 'home' waters they will be up for trying to go one better and break the Kiwi monopoly.
At the GP42 Series, defending champion, José María Ponce's (ESP) Puerto Calero (ESP), leads by 10 points over Paolo Cian's (ITA) Madrid-Caser Seguros (ESP). Their racing schedule starts on June 16, with the official practice race.
