Homepage Homepage History Calendar Results Competitors Gallery Contact Links HosterMonster PREVIEW 2017 Entries for Salamandre rally are filling up very quickly now, and we have loads of British crews coming over. This rally is new for everyone, but drivers who entered Chevrotines last year will recognise the same stage style: very quick, hilly and bumpy on used tarmac, 4x3 stages. All goes back to usual with ORC Canal Rally, round two. The 4x3 stage layout, very technical and a mix of every possible surface, will remain exactly the same, only some road sections will be a bit different. Two weeks later we meet again in Wervik rally, again for 4x3 stages. Road sections will be totally different, since both SS Geluwe and SS Kruiseke will be driven in the opposite direction compared to last year. Modern and Historic cars will be mixed too. The rally is known to be a miniature version of Ypres rally which is organised a fortnight later, so for BRC teams: this is your ultimate chance to prepare for Ypres! TBR and Chevrotines will be roughly identical to 2016, whilst Hemicuda Rally keeps the same format of 3x3 stages, but with the Kortemark stage entirely redesigned to 15k! Kortrijk is only in November, so it is a bit early for updates. Given the response we had over the winter, we are sure to welcome even more UK teams this year, and even expect some Irish drivers! Especially the Historic division promises to become really big. As we mentioned during winter break, 2017 will also see a change in classes. 2WD will certainly be split in two, possibly 4x4 and Historic too, depending on who turns up. We think to maintain the current classes until ORC and then make the decision on reorganising the field to get a more even battle. Of course all of you will have the chance to give your opinion via our FBpage. Finally we are also very happy to announce there will be a full tyre service in every FIRC event, thanks to the support of JB Tyres, run by Jan Beijnen who all of you know as the ultracool mechanic of Team Van Middendorp, aka the Dutchies. Tyres of your choice will be delivered at the rally and even put on your rims when desired. Further on we welcome Martin Jones Transmissions as one of our new partners, and we can count again on the financial support of Corbeau/Luke, the company also offers a 20% discount for FIRC drivers! FREE STARTS 2017 Efforts get rewarded in FIRC! The three class winners Ellis/Fowler, Coulson/Coulson and Williams/Cowley can choose two free starts for the 2017 Challenge. Further on, we can give away some wildcards again to the following teams, who each win one free start: Allfrey/Fellowes as most unlucky team. Plans for a full FIRC attack were ruined by a big off in Wervik, the car just got repaired for Hemicuda but all title hopes were gone. Lower/Greenfield as most spectacular team. Barney often forgot he was rallying instead of drifting. And that in a virtually standard car. Lunatic! Van Middendorp/Veldkamp as best Dutch team. And also for the best field kitchen and the most fun bar in serviceparks around! Richards/Gibson as best effort. Registering for FIRC without any realistic chance on winning anything, a load of mechanical worries and still keep smiling. Respect! Dawson/Dawson as best rookies. The pace went steadily up after every rally, resulting in podium finishes in class, as well as a general class win in Kortrijk. Very promising for 2017! Looking back at our free start politics, we think every FIRC team who registered in the past years has won (or was given) a free start now. Quite a good return on investment we think. Final words for 2016 With the 2017 calendar published, we can look forward to FIRC#8... but it’s is nice to look back too. Undoubtedly the 7th edition of FIRC was the most succesful so far. After a continuous growth troughout the years, we suddenly saw the Challenge exploding, with some events having 30 foreign guests, mostly good for a quarter of the seeding list. We have to go back several decades to see such numbers in Belgium, and even then they only appeared in some national events. The FIRC recipe will not change much in 2017, it will only get better. With more events to chose from, teams can spread their efforts more evenly troughout the year. And talking about teams, we expect even more next season, again. This year’s newcomers are also addicted now, and the interest of new teams is still growing. This promises a lot for the title battle, especially with an updated class system. The 2016 Challenge was undoubtedly the most nerve racking edition so far, with three titles decided after the last stage of the last rally! No one really doubts we should see an identical scenario in FIRC#8. To make stuff even more interesting, we have seen the birth of two new Challenges for next year that are both related with FIRC. In the mean time, we wish you many happy hours in the workshop and in between a Marry Christmas and a happy New Year, see you soon! Unique result for Coulson in Kortrijk FIRC traditionally gets decided in the last event. This year proved to be no exception to the rule, apart from the 2WD title the Coulsons took in Hemicuda. But they also won the overall title on Rally Kortrijk completing a unique result for the brothers. However it was quite a surprise to see that the 4x4 title was also decided when Kortrijk entries closed. Only Johnnie Ellis and Gavin Smith started in the 4x4 category while direct title rivals like David Campling (mechanical) and Tony Clements (lack of time) were forced to stay in the UK. With Smith no longer a threat to Ellis, ment that the ever ambitious TI Team now could go on the full attack and aim for a top ten result, not the easiest target in a field with ten R5 and three WRC cars, plus a lot of experienced locals in other quick metal of all kinds. Johnnie and Marc floored it, avoided the traps on a very tricky layout, and finished an impressive seventh overall! Many Belgians drivers who witnessed their performance were speechless. This year every rally had its surprise ad it happened again! More encouraging times were shown by Anthony O’Brien, who flirted with the top ten the whole rally, but was forced to retire with an oil leak. He shows great promise for 2017. Gavin Smith finished his season in style by taking second in the 4x4 category but next year there will be something new. Gavin will drive in the historic class in a smart Delta Integrale. We look forward to seeing this very rare car on our roads. With both 2wd and 4x4 titles already decided, all the attention went to the Historic field where some drama was expected between Andrew Thomson and Richard Williams. One little mistake would ruin their chances, not ideal for the nerves in these very tricky circumstances. Both teams had a troublefree event though, but only on the very last stage it came clear that Ricky Williams would take the title again. Only one point seperated the pair with Thompson the first to congratulate his opp... Similar Website
