Bel­gians prom­ise to re­turn af­ter Manx run

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Lead­ing Belgian his­toric rally driver Christophe Ja­cob and his part­ner Is­abelle Reg­nier made an im­pres­sive Isle of Man de­but when they fin­ished in sixth place his­toric on their first at­tempt on the chal­leng­ing event.

“This is a fan­tas­tic rally and we will be back,” said Ja­cob, who used the event to pro­mote next April’s Sala­man­dre Rally in Bel­gium. Al­though he has com­peted ex­ten­sively in main­land Europe, this was his first time on the is­land in the car pre­pared by Uk-based Rally Xtreme.

Af­ter com­plet­ing the recce, Ja­cob was very im­pressed with the is­land roads. “It is so chal­leng­ing but so nice, but I think I need to spend two weeks here to start to learn it,” he said.
