Por­tu­gal win out of the ques­tion for Kris Meeke

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Kris Meeke has ruled him­self out of the fight for vic­tory on this week’s Rally of Por­tu­gal – his first WRC out­ing since Swe­den in Fe­bru­ary.

Meeke has missed the last two WRC rounds, fo­cus­ing on the devel­op­ment of Citroen’s C3 WRC, which he was test­ing in Por­tu­gal again last week.

“I’m def­i­nitely not short on mileage,” Meeke told MN. “But you do miss the com­pe­ti­tion. Get­ting back into the rally en­vi­ron­ment is some­thing I’m very much look­ing for­ward to, it’s been a long time since Swe­den in Fe­bru­ary.”

Meeke says switch­ing be­tween the C3 and DS 3 is no prob­lem.

“I don’t think peo­ple need to be wor­ry­ing too much about what I’m do­ing this week,” he said. “OK, we have a good place on the road, but I’m here to stay sharp and get the mileage, that’s all. I have no cham­pi­onship fight to think about.”
