Paris - All Blacks superstar Dan Carter scored his first try for Racing 92 in a 26-3 French Top 14 triumph over Oyonnax on Saturday.

Carter, the world record international points scorer, was in inspirational form as Racing went top, grabbing the third of his team's four tries to help them maintain their unbeaten home run this season.

It was also their first bonus point win of the Top 14 campaign.

World Player of the Year Carter, who also popped over three conversions, crossed for his maiden try in the 55th minute.

French flanker Yannick Nyanga won turnover ball, fed Carter who freed South African full-back Johan Goosen. Goosen then found Carter back in support to score from close range.

Centre Henry Chavancy had scored Racing's first try after 17 minutes before Argentine winger Juan Imhoff grabbed the second 10 minutes later.

Nyanga secured the bonus point in the 76th minute with Racing's fourth try.

Carter took to Twitter after the match, posting a message of congratulation in French to Chavancy who was playing his 200th match for the French giants.

Racing's backs coach Laurent Labit said the result was a perfect boost ahead of the break for the Six Nations which starts next weekend.

"We won, with a bonus point and stay top of the table. It's a great satisfaction before the winter break," said Labit.
