Alexandra Hervé, who graduated from the Cadet category in 2018, has successfully progressed to the top categories this year. However, the move was not easy, with more powerful equipment and experienced rivals.
Alexandra first discovered OK-Junior during the FFSA Academy French Junior Championship. Thanks to the training provided by the federation coaches, she was able to start scoring her first points as early as mid-season.
Always supported by Didier Blot’s MATEC Competition structure, Alexandra immediately appreciated the performance of the X30 Senior karts. She was delighted to finish in the top 10 of the Ladies Cup organised by IAME Series France on the very fast circuit of Varennes sur Allier.
“I immediately felt comfortable in the X30 Senior. The standard is very high, my rivals often have much more experience than me, but I like the power of the engine and the grip of the tyres. This is better for my driving style and enables me to achieve better results. In addition to another season with the FFSA Academy, I will be racing in Senior more often next year. It will also be a good way to prepare for the French Women’s Championship, which is now reserved for X30 Senior engines,” said the young Valdoisienne, who is eager to compete in the 2020 season.
