The Hellendoor Rally initially looked like a battle between Bernhard ten Brinke and Jos Verstappen. For example, Ten Brinke was able to record the fastest time on Friday evening during the first and fourth tests, while the former Formula 1 driver won the second, third and fifth special tests.

However, during the sixth and final test on Friday evening, Verstappen’s chances of taking an overall win were diminished. Gus the Boss Mageleresch went off the road in the test, ended up in the ditch and eventually lost more than two minutes to his rival Ten Brinke, who managed to win the sixth test.

“Focus and keep going”

After six tests, Ten Brinke was on his way to overall victory in the Hellendoorn Rally. But the mistake could happen to us as well as to Jos,” the driver from Zeidam said on Saturday afternoon. “We have to fully concentrate and keep going. We have to do this.”

Ten Brinke and his navigator Davy Thierry succeeded in this. Although Verstappen managed to climb from 11th to 4th in the final standings, it was Ten Brinke who took the final victory. This was the second time the driver from Zeidam had won the Hellendoor Rally: Ten Brinke was also fastest in 2010.
