Default 1991 F1 Championship Visits Hockenheim For Round Eight Live 9pm Est on NAGPTV!


The North American Grand Prix Monday night open wheel series travels back in time this evening for round eight of the championship at the 1988 version of Hockenheim in Germany.

The French Connection team made it three wins in a row after Philippe Simard claimed the top step of the podium after last weeks race at Silverstone. Simard led all sessions claiming pole position by over 1.5 seconds ahead of Marc DeGras in second. Simard topped the big points night off by leading the most laps and scoring maximum points for the night. Marc DeGras, who took the fight to Simard early in the race, faded a bit after pit stops and finished a season best second, twenty-three seconds behind the leader. Matt Taylor finished the night in third, twenty-nine seconds behind first place.

The win by Philippe Simard moved the Canadian into first place in the drivers championship with 110 points. Eiran Parsons drops to second in the standings just two points behind the leader with 108 points. Marc DeGras remains in championship contention as he sits third with 100 points.

After three straight wins by The French Connection's Ian Jolicoeur and Philippe Simard, they have now moved into the lead of the team championship with 189 points. TBROKDAMBAM's Eiran Parsons and John Houston are second with 180 points while the Ligier team of Kevin Lechmanski and Marc DeGras are third with 168 points.
