Neuville excited by Rally Islas Canarias
Neuville will contest six IRC rounds in a Peugeot 207 Super 2000
Thierry Neuville says he can’t wait to begin his Intercontinental Rally Challenge campaign on Rally Islas Canarias next week.
Neuville, 21, will contest six rounds of the IRC in a Peugeot Team Belux 207 Super 2000 run by the Belgian Kronos Racing team, which guided Nicolas Vouilloz and Kris Meeke to back-to-back IRC drivers’ titles in 2008 and 2009 respectively.
"It’s very exciting and a very big opportunity for me so I can’t wait to get started," said Neuville. "I don’t know the Canarias Rally but I do have some experience of the Peugeot 207 when I did the Ypres Rally in the car last year."
Neuville, who will be co-driven by Nicolas Klinger this season, is due to test his car in Canarias next Monday (April 26).
