    Skoda Belgium chose this guy to replace Freddy Loix. Doesn't look fast at all...

    Nothing, basically. I'm sure some Belgian guys can tell more about him.

    Last year he has done maybe 5 rallies in Slovakia, Czech Republic (Barum) and Poland (Rzeszow) with an old Fabia.
    This year he did 2 rallies with an Adam R2 (broke gearbox after +-8 stages on first rally, crashed after 2 real stages on second rally).
    Then jumped in the Fabia R5 for Sezoensrally, Rally van Wervik (local event) and then Ypres.

    But did a lot of test, workshops etc and is supported by Loix and his former codriver Miclotte.

    But basically, he hasn't got the experience to compete in an R5.
    Maybe with enough time in the car, he can become a good driver, but I haven't seen a single pass with the Fabia (one with the Adam R2) where he really convinced me yet.

    He hasn't done anything special.
    His father has been active in motorsport in the 90's early 2000's. He was an average driver. He developed as a businessman (karting,...)
    Born in 1996, Achiel has the ideal profile for the seat. Young, he (his father) is bringing money which was part of the deal with the new driver. The only question mark about him is his real potential. So far, he's just learning. Not the slowest of them all in Ypres, we need to wait the first part of next year to see his potential.
    Freddy is coaching him. Funny is that I remember watching Loix in the 90's and never thought he would achieved so many great things in rallying. So I just give the guy another 12 months to draw the first conclusions.

    We are standing there to see roughly 2:26 to 2:36. Abbring and Bouffier made it on full throttle. Others not.

    Skoda was looking to replace loix. And he, or better his father, had the largest bag of money, so he got the seat. that's basically it.
