Next victory for the Polo GTI R5

Kris Princen unbeatable in Belgium

Perfect start to the season for the Polo GTI R5 in the Belgian Rally Championship. Reigning champion Kris Princen and his co-driver Peter Kaspers (B/B) took victory at the first attempt on their debut in Volkswagen’s new customer rally car. Princen was unbeatable at the Rally van Haspengouw in a Polo GTI R5 run by the BMA Autosport team, winning the rally for the fifth time in his career.

Princen and Kaspers finished 17.6 seconds ahead of Cédric Cherain and Sibille Pierre (B/B) who were second in the THX Racing Polo GTI R5, making it a Volkswagen one-two. All 12 special stages were won by Polo GTI R5 drivers, with Princen and Cherain taking six stage wins apiece.
