WRC stars join forces to help flood victims



Parts of Belgium and Germany have been ravaged by some of the heaviest rainfall on record in the past month, resulting in flash floods that have destroyed communities and killed more than 200 people. It is estimated that the cost of recovery will amount to several billion euros.

Given the desperate situation in parts of Belgium, Fourmaux called on the WRC family to raise funds for those affected by the floods ahead of next week’s Ypres Rally.

This is the first time that the famous Belgian rally has hosted a WRC event after COVID-19 forced its cancellation last year.

“As I want to do more for Belgians, I launched a crowdfunding campaign to help them,” Fourmaux wrote on Twitter.

“There is nothing the WRC family cannot do and I hope you will join me! The donation goes to the Belgian Red Cross.

Fourmaux also rewarded one of the many volunteers who helped flood victims in the aftermath of the disaster, with a passenger ride in his Ypres Rally pre-event test.

WRC rookie Oliver Solberg has also joined forces to help the campaign, donating a pair of his driving gloves and a cap to a selected person who shares the link to the fundraising page or donates to the fund. .

“As an added incentive, I’ll be donating a bunch of stuff including my driving gloves, a cap and more to a random kind person who donates and shares this tweet,” Solberg posted.

“Together, the WRC community can come together to help those in need.”

The Ypres rally is due to start next Friday.
