Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

While Kris Meeke’s full WRC sched­ule is yet to be con­firmed, the Dun­gan­non driver will com­pete in at least five events this term.

The PH Sport driver will con­test the Monte Carlo Rally this week, be­fore ap­pear­ances in Swe­den, Por­tu­gal, Poland and Cor­sica. “The pro­gramme’s not con­firmed yet,” ex­plained Meeke. “But there’s not much to be gained by go­ing to events where we have quite good knowl­edge.”

Meeke com­petes on the Monte for the sixth time, and has ruled out any talk of tar­gets ahead of the event.

“We’re here for more ex­pe­ri­ence of what is a very spe­cial rally,” said Meeke. “I love the chal­lenge of the Monte and, with the weather chang­ing, this could be a re­ally tricky one.

“This is def­i­nitely the start of a new chap­ter for me, it’s what I’ve been wait­ing for.”

Meeke will drive an Abu Dhabi To­tal World Rally Team DS 3 WRC on up to 10 events this sea­son, while stack­ing up thou­sands of miles of test­ing in the 2017 C3 WRC.

Meeke will be joined by Craig Breen in Swe­den.
