    Following the retirement of Belgian rallying legend Freddy Loix at the end of the 2016 season, Vincent Verschueren was one of many drivers who hoped to step up.

Verschueren had finished third in the championship on no fewer than four occasions. But this season, driving a FABIA R5 in the Duindinstel colours but prepared and run by the GoDrive team, alongside co-driver Veronique Hostens, he took his chance to claim his maiden Belgian championship title and a fourth successive win for ŠKODA.
