It was at 2am on Saturday 8th May that Stéphane, Jean-Louis, Vincent, Geoffrey, Mickaël, Rémi, Aurélien and Sylvain finished the second C4 dedicated to Marc Laboulle, and it was at 8am that same morning that Marc climbed into it for the first time;How can we thank all the people who have been working relentlessly for weeks so that the C4 is not only ready on time, but that it is as "well born and finished" as its big sister... Well, it's a success, it is as performing as beautiful, and supreme reward, it offered to all its progenitors a weekend in Kerlabo full of show, pleasure, technical prowess and strong emotions!

Not only did Marc quickly get to grips with the C4, make it more reliable and set it up, but he also progressed to the 8th best time of the 35 D1 WRC cars entered in this European round, during the second qualifying heat, thus taking pole position in the C final.And what a C final! It will remain in our memories for a long time, a magnificent manoeuvre with Ludvig Hunsbedt, which Marc offered us for his return to business. Victorious in front of the hot Norwegian, Marc gave his superb car access to the B final, and finished 11th in the European general classification, and 3rd in France... By analysing all the times of the weekend, Stéphane Orré realised that his driver, over 6 laps in the final, had set the 2nd best absolute time behind Michael Jernberg, the Swede leading the European Championship. Car and driver did not fail throughout a memorable weekend, a great reward for the whole Mtech team who did not count its working hours...
What can we say about Davy Jeanney, who more than confirmed his feat in Essay! This weekend, he didn't let go of anything, on the contrary, he showed a lot of guts and maturity in front of these Europeans, some of whom don't hesitate to push and go in contact to get the best places...But where Davy really impressed the public, and his competitors, was by going after the best in the world, and by being the only Frenchman to be placed directly in the A final. And on a flying lap, Davy also pocketed the 2nd best absolute time of the weekend.After an eventful and fierce final with Liam Doran, Davy finished 4th in the general ranking and 1st in France, as this round also counted for the French Championship, which allowed Davy to consolidate his leadership with 40 points!
It was a difficult weekend for Philippe Tollemer, who had started well with an excellent time of 37.063s in timed practice. He was unhappy in the first round and was hit by Alain Heu in the second, but he remains focused on his objective, the French championship, and is already looking forward to the next round in Faleyras, near Bordeaux, on 22 May
.[In Faleyras, Mtechnologies will not only be lining up a 4th car, but will also be the promoter, via the partnership of its driver, of an innovative educational project. Guillaume Bergeon, winner of the Citroën C2 Challenge in 2006, will take the wheel of the team's C2 Spéciale D1A, bringing with him two young students from the Lycée Roger Claustres. This school is also from Clermont-Ferrand and the link with Mtechnologies was an obvious choice, also driven by the desire to improve performance. For many years, this high school has included a section for training technicians and racing mechanics, particularly in rallying. However, in 2010, the Sport Auto section wanted to broaden its training fields, and rallycross, with its mixed circuits and its particular technology, appeared to be an obvious discipline for the school.Guillaume Bergeon, the instigator of the project, and Mtechnologies, with the strength of their championship titles, will have the mission of supervising and serving as a pedagogical "support" for two young people, who we hope will be the first in a long line of specialists trained alongside us
