The rally of Wallonia start Friday night with a double superspecial on the esplanade of the Citadel of Namur. The fourth round of the BELGIAN Rally can count on a very strong field. A whopping 22 R5 cars are registered for this competition which will end in a became between VW and Skoda. Conspicuously absent is Kris Princen (VW Polo R5).
Princen won the rally of Haspengouw and the TAC two of the three already driven rallies of the BK. At the start of the season told Kris Princen that he has a budget for seven races and the rally of Wallonia in his program paste. “We are allowed a maximum of eight of the nine contests nominate points of the trip. As an entrepreneur I like to keep the price closely in the holes. If there is then still a choice should be made than me it seems logical that I pass for the most expensive competition. A rally over three days is also not of this time anymore. I watch with interest how my titelconcurrenten it there this weekend from will bring.”
In the absence of Princen get Cherain (VW Polo R5) the role assigned and can he, if a good result, once again the leadership in the PA. For Vincent Verschueren (Skoda Fabia R5), it is also an ideal opportunity to make his point total to thicken. After three races, where he applied for Spa, Verschueren only on the eighth place in the BK position. But will the former champion of Belgium have to deal with merkgenoten Bedoret, Fernémont and De Mevius. There are easier assignments.
Spread over three days, the participants 22 klassementsritten for the wheels pushed. Well, for a total of 220,74 km.
