The Legend Boucles @ Bastogne at the start of the
… Rallye du Condroz-Huy !
Rather surprising news, but if one looks at it closely, not really that surprising…… Its main particularity is that it is situated at the extremities of the sporting season, the Rallye du Condroz-Huy and the Legend Boucles @ Bastogne as being considered to be the two most popular events of their kind in the Kingdom! The large crowds of old traditionally rush to the edge of the Meuse for the final round of the Belgian Rally Championship, prior to three months later heading off to the heart of the Province of Luxembourg for the ode to the classic car competition.
As such during the first weekend of November the Condroz-Huy will welcome a car at the start bearing the colours of the … Legend Boucles @ Bastogne 2019! No way a random operation, seeing this car will be the Volvo 144S of Sébastien Glaude and Jennifer Hugo, being the oldest machine of the pack, dating from 1967. Entered in the ‘Historic’ category, this valiant Swedish car will be the perfect transition between the Condroz and the Legend Boucles. At the wheel, Sébastien Glaude is strongly linked to the event organised by the Royal Automobile Club de Spa in Bastogne. The son of Christian Glaude, Mayor of Bertogne brilliantly re-elected during the recent communal elections, Sébastien in this way reminds one and all of the undeniable importance the event represents for such a region … without forgetting the 5 year contract linking Bertogne to the organisers of the Legend Boucles!
Seated next to ‘Séba’ Glaude, we will come across Jennifer Hugo, who with an ever-increasing mastery takes pleasure in competing in historic events. Liège-Rome-Liège, Rally de Portugal Historico, the young lady was able to impose herself in a circle of co-drivers who count…and can count!
First and foremost, R.A.C. Spa extend their best wishes of success to the organisers of the Rallye du Condroz-Huy 2018, Pierre Delettre, the mastermind of the Legend Boucles commented. Thanks to Sébastien Glaude and Jennifer Hugo, the ties between the two events have been underlined, and now that the registrations will be opening … two days before the start of the Condroz, the opportunity was perfect to display our colours on the edge of the Meuse. Godspeed to ‘Séba’ and Jennifer with their venerable Volvo… that will come across machines of its generation three months later!”
