Winner’s Circle – Charlotte Léoni (FRA)
“Until now I had a curse and always had four penalty-points on the second day with Venezia. It’s good I conjured the spell and more with a victory! We were already fourth yesterday so it’s a perfect weekend! I think I gained some time on the half-turn before vertical number 10. I turned really tight! ”
