The V8 French Cup was the first round of the LCR V8 Supercup, taking place on Sunday 16th July. This round was contested at the Bugatti Circuit, a purpose-built circuit situated inside the world famous Circuit de la Sarthe, at Le Mans. This marked the first time a race was officially held under the Legacy Championship Racing (LCR) banner, and was also the first league race to be contested outside of the Codemasters F1 games.
EVR Matt212 qualified on pole position, before going on to win both the sprint and feature races, earning a perfect score of 36 points in just the first round of the championship. TOR Leopard finished the sprint race in 3rd and the feature in 2nd, with Insane Moskito mirroring this. LCR Apex finished 4th in both races.
