A truly excellent few days in the Namur area of Belgium saw Kevin Abbring & Pieter Tsjoen (208 T16) take victory by just over 3/4 of a minute from Ghislain de Mevius & Johan Jalet (Fabia R5) with Vincent Verschueren & Veronique Hostens (Fabia R5) just over 7 seconds further back, completing the podium.
