A good day again in France for belgian drivers !!!
Dominique Bruyneel is leading the Terre du Diois after five stages, and Bob Colsoul is 5th(2nd in the GrN class)
Fast french driver Thomas Privé has only 6s lateness and I believe he will want to win overall, not only GrN
One stage left before end of leg, and four other stages tomorrow...
PS: retirement with mechanical problem on SS1 on his Skoda Octavia for Bernard Munster
7th Jun 09, 14:30 #22
Bruyneel is taking in victory in this round of the gravel championship.
2. Chieusse at 1'33"6
3. Cherain at 2'58"4
4. Colsoul at 3'11"2
5. Lavigne at 4'41"9
Thomas Privé didn't reach finish of penultimate stage?

Next week there's also the Rallye international de Bourgogne Côte châlonnaise, knowing it's a rally where many non-french drivers run(Belgians, Dutch, Germans, Danish, Swiss,...)have you got any idea of who will take part to it from your countries ????

Final entrylist(starting order)of this week-end's Rallye du Rouergue
Even if Patrick Henry should be the fav' for the win, behind him the S2000 duel between Canivenq(who will be at home), Vigion and Gal(back with the 207 after the Grande Punto)will be to closely follow
Of course we shouldn't count off Pierre Roché(more and more used to the Subaru)and Jean-Michel Da Cunha(at home on this event)
Also the return of Robert and the arrival in Clio R3 for Pelamourgues will give a great interest to the R3 class(difficult to see the winner between Guigou, Robert and "Pela")
7th Jul 09, 12:54 #31
I forgot to mention the presence of Belgian Thierry Neuville with his C2R2 at the Rallye du Rouergue
Can also do something interesting in the Group R
10th Jul 09, 22:36 #32
After the four stages that were run today in Rouerge, this is how it looks in overall classification:
2. Roche at 7"8

5. Henry at 17"2
6. Gal at 1'04"1
7. Guigou at 1'09"0
8. Robert at 1'24"7
12. Neuville at 2'49"9

Rallye Rouerge is finished. Here are the results:

First overall victory for S2000 car in France, local boy Cnivenq won in front of his teammate Vigion. Very nice performance by Thierry Neuville, being 8th overall and winning the Citroen Trophy.

Walter, Barral wasn't part of Citroën Trophy? How come?Meum est propositum in taberna mori.

15th Jul 09, 18:08 #36
Did you notice the driver in 5th position? Nice to see Cedric in action again!
15th Jul 09, 18:12 #37
It seems French S2000 cars are faster than WRCs! Look at the French championship standings after Rouergue:
1. Guigou 50 - Renault Cio R3,
2. Canivenq 49 - Peugeot 207 S2000,
3. Vigion 47 - Peugeot 207 S2000,
4. Henry 40 - Peugeot 307 WRC,
5. Barral 37 - Citroen C2 R2

Superb entrylist of next week's Rallye terre de Langres(gravel championship)
Laurent Carbonaro in a Ford Focus(his whale was too damaged after previous crash), return of favourite Jean-Marie Cuoq in his whale,...
Big fight in the 2WD between the Clio R3, 207 R3T and C2 R2,...
20th Jul 09, 17:37 #39
Another interesting rally to follow this week-end, the Rallye de la Montagne noire

23rd Jul 09, 09:22 #40
Links to follow the Rallye terre de Langres(start leg one saturday)
More Belgians than usual on this event, especially in GrNs
Overall of course better belgian chances are Bruyneel and Munster with their WRC cars(though the return of Cuoq will make very hard a belgian victory)...
In the Citroën Racing trophy note the presence of Thierry Neuville and Claudie Tanghe(but favorite is "polish champion" Bouffier)
Three other belgian crews in Fiesta N3s are also on entry
In the Volant 207 Swiss Laurent Reuche is among favorites for victory there too...
