David White along with son Matthew were the sole runners in BRC4 on the challenging roads around Ypres. The English duo love competing on the sealed-surface, however, on the opening day they visited a ditch in their Ford Fiesta R2. With the help of spectators, the father and son duo were able to continue to take their first class win of the year to put them ahead of World Mountain Bike Champion Gee Atherton.
In the National Rally Cup, John Morrison/Peter Carstairs were out to gather experience on the Belgian Tarmac in their immaculately prepared Mitsubishi Evo 6. The crew inherited the lead after initial trial blazer Donnie Macdonald went off the road on the first day of the event. Morrison took his second win of the season and stretched his command at the top of the NRC points standings.
Max Utting and Claire Williams made a welcome return to the BRC after missing the last round. The pair carefully threaded their Ford Fiesta ST through the Belgian lanes to take a welcome second place in class. Utting earns four extra points after playing his ‘Joker’ on this round.
