Results Course de Côte de Vencimont 2017

Jelle de Coninck absolutely dominated the opening round of the Belgian Hillclimb Championship this weekend. At the Course de Côte de Vencimont the four-time champion was 2,5 seconds faster than runner-up Anthony Loeuilleux and 6 seconds quicker than third placed Philippe Dewulf! Even though the entrylist was rather slim it was nonetheless a great performance. Reigning champion Jacques Marchal only brought his Van Diemen FX singleseater to Vencimont to focus on the regional support race. Although it was not really possible to be competitive with this car he still finished fifth overall in the national race. The Formula 3 class was quite competitive with three quite equal drivers. Philippe Fusillier was the class winner here and fourth overall. He was quicker than Didier Boemer in his new Lola B06/30 (7th overall) and Roland Braquet (9th overall).

With Dewulf we have already mentioned the touringcar winner. Here he was as dominant as De Coninck in the sportscars. Dewulfs lead over runner-up Martin Bach was 4 seconds. Eric Schwilden completed the podium. Last year’s championship contenders Fabrizio Casciaro and Stephane Emond were both absent.

In the regional race Julien Vandeput was fastest in two out of the three races. Yet he did not win as Jacques Marchal had a slightly better aggregate time. Third fastest was the touringcar winner Olivier Dubois. His main challenger in Division 1-2-3 was Christophe Le Nouvel. Sadly two broken driveshafts meant that the Citroën AX pilot dropped to fourth. Instead it was Francis Gilles who claimed second place. Third was for Alain Cricus who competed his first hillclimb event with a road-legal Porsche 996 GT3!
