Last year was the fastest man there local hero Freddy Loix, who is unbeaten since season 2013. This was also his tenth win on this event.
But Loix has this year many good drivers to beat. Tanak won’t start there with Fiesta, but there will be other drivers with that car: Lukyanuk, Tsjoen, Casier, Orsak,…
