The 63rd A&D Omloop van Vlaanderen welcomes the Dutch Motul Clio Rally Trophy
With the 63rd A&D Omloop van Vlaanderen, the Dutch Motul Clio Rally Trophy is ready for its penultimate race. Many Dutch teams are therefore going to Roeselare to pitch their tents in the Van Mossel – Devos Capoen Clio village, made possible in part by our partner Transport De Duytsche.
Just like in the Belgian Clio Trophy, the Dutch Motul Clio Rally Trophy has five races and all participants drive a Renault Clio V. However, there are also differences. In the Belgian variant, only the Rally5 version is allowed. Our northern neighbors can also participate with the Rally4 version, the bigger brother of the Rally5 with stronger brakes, more adjustment options in the suspension and of course more power. For more information you can visit the service zone in the Van Mossel – Devos Capoen Clio village.
Since the 63rd A&D Omloop van Vlaanderen is the penultimate race of the Dutch Motul Clio Rally Trophy, the top 3 in the intermediate ranking will be present. With a win in the GTC Rally, the Overbeek – van der Rijsen team jumps from fifth place to second place. The Deij – Muilwijk duo must put in all their effort to defend their provisional leadership position. Cupens – Cuppens started in the GTC Rally with a brand-new Clio and drove their own retained race. To hold third place, they will have to take a little more risks.
It promises to be a nice battle on the classification tests in Roeselare and surroundings. A battle that undoubtedly also gets a Belgian touch. After all, with Depotter – Maelfait and Dekeyser – Tassaert we get two teams at the start from the top 3 of the Belgian Clio Trophy. And who knows, perhaps one of the other Renault Clio V teams, which will start on Friday, will be the surprise.
