Container Conquer Audi MedCup Marseille Trophy

In what has to be one of the biggest disappointments of the week, racing was cancelled today in Marseille, handing the Marseille Trophy to the German team Container.

The stage was set for what was expected to be a thrilling showdown between Quantum Racing and Container who were separated by just one and a half points. But the weather had other ideas and at 2:21pm this afternoon all racing was officially cancelled. The north westerly Mistral kicked in and gusts of over 25 knots were recorded deeming it unsafe to resume the competition.
