Belgians promise to return after Manx run
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.
