Tsjoen did it again for Future World.

Pieter Tsjoen and Eddy Chevaillier (Toyota Corolla WRC) claimed their second victory of the season at the Rallye de Wallonie, round two of the Belgian Division 1 Rally Championship. Bruyneel was a distant second in a Toyota Celica GT4, while Van Woensel (Lancer Evo 6) was the top Gr.N runner in third. With a second victory to his credit, the Future World pair has 20 points at the head of the point table, with Bruyneel on 11 and Snijers dropping to third on 8.

One month after Snijers has lost the battle of Spa, he started the Wallonie with a new Impreza P2000. Tsjoen was not afraid and signed the "scratch" in SS1 and SS2. Despite a puncture in SS3, the Toyota driver was still leading the rally by a margin of 8 seconds over Snijers. SS3 was the last special stage for Snijers, who retired at the next service (broken engine). Then, Tsjoen dominated a dry and sunny competition, finishing more than five minute ahead of Bruyneel. Van Woensel took the Gr.N victory while Bouche (Lancer Evo 7) - finishing 7th - has to face to hub problems. One of the highlights of the race was Cols's (Punto S1600) battle with Collard (Saxo S1600). During the last section, Cols managed to take the lead over the reigning S1600 champion. On the podium, Tsjoen dedicated his win to his friend Rocco Theunissen who died of meningitis 15 days ago.
