5 years ago

After one night and one day competing, the FERM World Rally Team turned out to be the winner of the Unica Schutte ICT Hellendoorn Rally by lead of Dennis Kuipers. Together with his Belgian navigator Robin Buysmans, Dennis won all ten heats with his Ford Fiesta WRC car.

At the end, Kuipers stayed almost two minutes in front of Bernard ten Brink. Bas van Kamperdijk from Aadorp finished third. Last year, the FERM World Rally was also the strongest team in Hellendoorn.

Dangerous circumstances

The 33 edition was a lot shorter than initially planned. Due to thick fog, four heats were cancelled. Also on Saturday not all the heats could be held. Heat nine was neutralised after a crash at a tree and heat 14 was cancelled due to bad circumstances of the unpaved roads.All this did not harm Dennis Kuipers; the driver from Borne started on pole position and did not give this away. René Kuipers drove in the second FERM WRC car and finished tenth.
