WRC3: Rossel strengthens title challenge with Belgium win

Yohan Rossel held his own against stiff opposition to take home the spoils in WRC3 at Renties Ypres Rally Belgium on Sunday. Rossel, driving a Citroën C3 Rally2, took the lead early on Friday after fending off rivals who included former Ypres winners and Belgian champions. Bedoret’s Škoda Fabia Rally2 developed a transmission issue, which meant the 26-year-old had to continue with only front-wheel-drive. “I am extremely happy for this result and the work from the whole team, it feels great,” beamed Rossel. Pieter Jan Michiel Cracco rounded out a troublefree weekend with second in his Škoda. He had a hefty 1min 15.4sec advantage over the struggling Bedoret, who eventually ended fourth. He was just 5.1sec down on Bedoret, with Bernd Casier 21.7sec further back in a Ford Fiesta Rally2.
