|The traditional picture of the grid; Sierras up front.
|It is nearly impossible to get the pictures in the right order - so we go backwards through the field. Group N: this is the Dutch importers' car, with airjacks, Hin, Euser and Vermeersch. The car finished 20th, fifth in class.||39th at the finish: the UURT BMW 535i of Carlier, Bormans and Watteyne.|
|Bourgoignie, Verellen and Semoulin finished 14th in the Sierra.||This is the side in Dutch!
Porsches were back, after all those years. This is the N-GT car of
Dören, Hardy and Schenk - they finished ninth, second in class.
||A tail-happy number 78.
|Another Porsche: this is the Moore, Delcourt and Visconti 911; they retired.
||And another one: Nève, de Jamblinne and Libert finished tenth overall, third in class.
Moneytron Ferrari's were disappointing. This is the car of Gachot,
Huysman and comeback man Keke Rosberg. They were not classified.
||The second car was for Witmeur and comeback men Philippe Martin and Mauro Bianchi.
|Bagnall, Hennes and Wollgarten drove this AC Schnitzer car to 25th overall and second in N/division 4.
||Hess, Polanski and Hölzl in the Mercedes 2.3-16; 30th and third in class.
|A division 5 car again; the Porsche 944 turbo of Guyaux, Herregods and Bovy; a fine sixth overall and first in Group N.||Van Moll, Pensis and Bertinchamps drove this M3; Group N, but that's definitely an Evo front spoiler! 13th overall, first in N/Division 4.|
|"Wilmi", Baugnee and Jamar won N/Division 3 and finished 18th overall.||Thiry, Wauters and Roothaert finished 38th in the Celica.|
|Carlier, Meirschaut and Theyus did not finish at all...
||... the car had a big moment.
|Close, Hortulanus and Seyler: 27th overall and second in N/division 3.
||Vingerhoed/Maillien: third in class, 29th overall.
|Tillekaerts/Koentges won N/division 2 and finished 17th overall.
||Corthals, Cuvelier and Dewez: second in N/Division 1, 32nd overall.
|A typical Spa night shot - and a great one indeed.
|Nightrunners: Schnitzer M3...
||... and Prodrive M3.
|We continue with group A; starting numbers go the other way round as in Group N; suits me fine. This is the Corolla of Van Rompuy, Willems and Van Peer; 23rd overall, fifth in class.||The van Hilten couple and Philips finished 34rd and seventh in class.|
|Remion, Chaballe and Peters brought this Corolla to 24th overall and sixth in class.||The Supra Turbo may be a fine car in Japan, but in Europe the car was disappointing; this one retired with a boken clutch.|
|The other Supra retired with a blown head gasket.
|Severich, Schumacher and Haugg finished 22nd and fourth in class.
||What an elegant car, the Corolla AE92. Toyo-shod, it finished 12th overall and third in class.
|Fermine, de Liedekerke and Verreydt finished eight overall and won their class.
||Guiot, Plasch and Dehaut retired this M3 Evo.
|"Vabueti", Freon and Bruno in trouble!
||Vanierschot, Wansart or Maljean spinning this M3; it would continue to 21st overall and fourth in class.
|Mychl, Faubel and Walterscheid-Müller: 16th overall, third in class.
||A fifth overall for Prodrive with rallymen De Mevius and Chatroit, partnered by Jeff Allam.|
|Oops! M3 getting it wrong.
||Still, Bovensiepen, Memminger and De Radigues finished seventh and third in class.
|Theys, Duez and Soper...
||... retired this Priodrive car.
|The Bigazzi car of Béguin/Quester/Tarquini dropped out late in the race with a broken clutch.||Here it has passed the 535i.
|Another retirement: Laffite, Martin and Grouillard.
||No Schnitzer victory this year: second place for Ravaglia/Heger/Giroix.|
|Oldtimer: Tant, Douart and Taguet retired...
||... just like this other oldtimer, the Volvo of De Rosée, Raes and Dumortier.
|Bornebusch, De Sordi and Slaus brought this Sierra home in an excellent fourth overall.
||De Dryver, Morin and Metge finished 14th overall.
|The mighty AMG Mercedes provided only a short firework. This car retired...
||... just like the other one.
became a double victory for the Eggenberger team, after all those
years. This is the car of Biela, Joosen and Lindström, second.
||Two Bastos cars in one picture.
|Here's the winner: the Eggenberger Sierra of Brancatelli, Schneider and Percy.||The podium; I recognize Schneider, Lindström, Heger and Biela.|
