Belgian Rallying: Kerry and Irish interest in this weekend’s Omloop van Vlaanderen

Dublin-based Killcummin co-driver Damian Fleming is contesting this weekend’s Omloop van Vlaanderen – Tour of Flanders alongside Stephen McCann.

Considered one of the classic events of Belgian rallying the ‘Omloop’ gets underway on Friday night.

The Cavan/Kerry crew, former winners of the Kerry Winter Rally will use their usual Ford Fiesta R5  for the two-day, 19-stage rally.

“I’m looking forward to getting back into a rally car after a very long 18months break.

2It’s our first time competing abroad and we are looking forward to the new experience and the fast challenging roads on the Tour of Flanders,” Fleming told Kerry Motorsport News.

Other entrants with a Kerry connection include Gary Kiernan, the winner of the last Kerry Winter Rally to run in 2017.

Former Circuit of Kerry frontrunners, James Harrison and Harvey Bell are also entered in a Skoda Fabia R5 to mark their first rally together since the 2009 West Cork Rally.

Ford Escort exponent Wesley Patterson is also entered.
