In front of a full-house, Boyd Exell claimed his 12th consecutive title in the FEI Driving World Cup

After years of reigning without any doubt on the indoor driving circuit, Boyd Exell now has some young talents on his heels. Finishing behind the young dutchman Bram Chardon in the pre-qualifier of Saturday, presented by Brasserie Egger, Boyd Exell had to let his experience speak to win this Wolrd Cup : his 12th in Geneva.

The Australian driver is ahead of two young drivers who, month after month, get noticed on the circuit : Belgian Glenn Geerts is 2nd, Dutch Bram Chardon 3rd. "I can't really explain my mistakes, said the latter, my horses are in top form, I have the necessary points for the next World Cup Final so I don't feel like I lost my nerves!" The three leaders all agreed that the course laid out by newcomer Jeroen Houterman was very technical. "The level has risen, said Glenn Geerts, so the course designer draw some finer courses to push us."

Halftone performance for Swiss driver Jérôme Voutaz and his four franches-montagnes horses who, wiht two faults and a time of 174.47s, ends up 5th behind Frenchman Benjamin Aillaud. German Mareike Harm, first woman to compete in the World Cup Driving circuit, ends up 6th.
