PSRX team faces rush to ready car in time for French event

Motor Sport News - - Headline News -

Sol­berg’s PSRX team faces a race against time to re­pair its Citroen DS 3 Su­per­car fol­low­ing the ac­ci­dent on Sun­day.

The car had been sched­uled to travel back to Europe from Trois-riv­ieres in time for the next round of the se­ries in France at the start of Septem­ber with the rest of the World RX fleet by sea, but has in­stead al­ready been dis­patched from Canada by air, to re­turn the car to Sol­berg’s base at Torsby in Swe­den.

The car is ex­pected to be in Sol­berg’s work­shop be­fore the end of the week, giv­ing the pri­vately-run out­fit just two and a half weeks be­fore hav­ing to leave for the eighth round of the cham­pi­onship at Lo­heac, 1383 miles away from base.

While the team’s trans­porter and equip­ment can travel ahead of the car to give the en­gi­neers and tech­ni­cians as much time as pos­si­ble to re­pair the dam­age, which is mostly at the rear of the car, the DS 3 must be at Lo­heac for pre-event scruit­neer­ing on Fri­day Septem­ber 2, af­ter mak­ing the 23-hour jour­ney south from Swe­den.
