Ice-Racing Success for Dacia Lodgy Glace - Web Exclusive

The action will continue in Andorra where Team Dacia will be looking for a better finish.

Dec 20, 2011

We previously reported on Romanian manufacturer, Dacia, and its 340hp V6 ice-racing entry in the famous Andros Trophy series. Based on its new Lodgy MPV, two cars would be driven by ex-F1 champion Alan Prost, his son Nicolas and Evens Stievenart.

Following its first competitive outing, the Dacia Lodgy Glace scored a podium thanks to Evens Stievenart, who was third in the opening race at Val Thorens in France.

Conditions were made difficult by a lack of ice for the vent, but Alain Prost, Nicolas Prost and Evens Stievenart all succeeded in showcasing Team Dacia’s latest challenger.

Although wintry conditions had yet to arrive in the French Alps, the track at Val Thorens featured a satisfactory layer of ice, which allowed all three drivers to give Dacia Lodgy Glace its maiden run. The first weekend of the season taught the team a great deal, despite the delicate track conditions, but the results point to an exciting championship to come, with 10 or more drivers capable of challenging for the title.

Evens Stievenart (3th): “I continued to drive as though I was on ice, but a racing style would have been more appropriate. That’s a lesson for the future. The positives are that I’ve scored points and been able to get an idea of Dacia Lodgy Glace’s potential. I am third in the provisional Trophée Andros standings, so that’s satisfying. We will work as a team to ensure that Alain Prost catches up with the leaders to challenge for what promises to be an extremely competitive championship.”

Alain Prost (8th): “I had a good chance of winning the second qualifying heat but my chances took a blow on the last lap. The tenths of a second I lost were enough to drop me from first to third place. We showed that we will be able to fight for the title and Dacia has already claimed a podium finish. The car clearly has potential. The level is very high and it’s a shame that we didn’t come away with more points than we did, but there’s a long way to go before the end of the season.”
