Meeke will compete on at least five World Rally Championship events in PH Sport car
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.
