Rally Valli Ossolane (I) - July 27-28th 2002

Winner Jaquillard (Future World) takes it all !

Christian and Christiane Jaquillard have scored 25 major points by winning Rally Valli Ossolane, round four of the 2002 Swiss Rally Championship. The first win of Jaquillard at the wheel of his Toyota Corolla WRC tuned by Belgian team Future World means his comeback to the second place of the championship, two points behind leader Uzzeni.

Has the current Swiss rally competition taken a new profile in Italy? In Druogno, SS1 was cancelled before Jaquillard signed 11 "scratches" out of 11. End of July, Jaquillard has made a short appearance at the racing track of Zolder (B), to check his car after revision by team Future World. He started confident with the car, paying only attention to new brakes during SS2 and SS3. After a strong start, Dissegna (Escort Cosworth) has to retire in SS11. Despite losing 12 seconds in the last special stage of the rally (5,8 km), Uzzeni (Impreza WRC 2001) managed to keep the second place. He finished 12 seconds ahead of Canella (Impreza GT).

"After impressive "scratches" and podium in Critérium Jurassien, the first win of Christian is what Future World was expected, told Gerard Magniette team manager. From the beginning, Christian is delighted with the way the Toyota reacts. We are ready to help him in order to clinch the 2002 title. Next step for Christian is winning Ronde d'Ajoie (CH), following rendezvous of the championship."

Performing Toyota Corolla WRC since 1999, Future World is leading current Belgian competition (R. Theunissen) and 2002 La Réunion championship (M. Unia). Antwerpen-based squad has won seven rallies in 2002 and is still classified third of the European Rally Championship (L. Kuzaj). Next rally for Future World is Deutschland Rally with Theunissen-Genten (B/B).
