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