In­dri makes Bel­gium re­turn in Wervik

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

MSA As­phalt reg­u­lar John In­dri re­turned to Bel­gium for the first time in 20 years on Rally Van Wervik last week­end.

In­dri formed part of a large English con­tin­gent (see in brief), and re­turned hav­ing com­peted in the 1996 Peu­geot Chal­lenge on Rally Ypres.

“We went to have a good laugh and it makes sense com­ing from Es­sex,” said In­dri. “It took us four and a half hours to get there, I can’t get to Epynt for that. They gave us a free en­try and away we went.”

The Es­sex driver suf­fered a 1m10s penalty for late­ness af­ter hit­ting a chi­cane thanks to a mis­un­der­stand­ing with his Bel­gian co-driver, and fin­ished 11th. With­out the penalty he could have been as high as eighth, in just his fourth event in the car.
