Mark Tout's Great Britain I team came within a whisker of winning the European championship at La Plagne, France, yesterday but were edged out on the second run. Tout, George Farell, Jason Wing and Lenny Paul were quickest on the first run by just four-hundredths of a second from Guenther Huber's Italy I squad, but the Italian made up nearly a quarter of a second on the slower second run to take the title. Sean Olsson's Great Britain II bob was ninth.
