After each rally, the BFO Award crowns a young pilot from the Junior Championship for an exceptional or remarkable achievement. The BFO Award is accompanied by a free registration for the next rally of the BFO BRC and a free participation in the BFO Academy, a training day for pilots and co-pilots.
Two pilots who won the BFO Award earlier this season, started particularly furious. Polle Geusens started fastest, but after a small mistake of the pilot from Lommel, Timo van der Marel took the rally in hands. The Dutchman seemed to have victory in hand, until Matthias Boon launched the attack with his Skoda Fabia R2. With a super time on the very last stage in Gerdingen, Matthias Boon won the fourth round of the Belgian Junior Rally Championship. After previous bad luck in Haspengouw (engine), Tielt (throttle) and the Rally of Wallonia (flat tire), Boon was finally rewarded for his persistence and attack lust.
