Stephen Wright took his R5 Ford Fiesta to Belgium last weekend to compete on the Sezoens Rally. Stephen was joined by local navigator, Eddy Smeets, reprising their partnership on this event from last year. The mixed surface event consisted of five stages repeated three times varying in length from 7km to 13km. The Monaghan/Belgium partnership put in an impressive showing holding a solid 4th overall for much of the event before being promoted to 3rd on the final loop. This made it back-to-back 3rd place finishes for the pair. Multiple Belgian Champion, Freddy Loix won the event from Kris Princen in 2nd. Both these drivers have made regular appearances at World and European level, making Stephen’s performance all the more noteworthy.
