Intercontinental Challenge: Kris Meeke on the last lap with Peugeot

Kris Meeke and Keith Cronin will be joined by four other Irish drivers in next week’s Rally of Scotland, the penultimate round of the Intercontinental Challenge.

Meeke, of course, makes his farewell appearance with the Kronos Peugeot team before switching to the new BMW Mini World championship project, and double British champion Cronin will have his second outing with the MEM Proton team.

But also joining the line-up in Perth next week will be the Mitsubishi trio of Jonny Greer, who won the production category in Scotland last year, Danny Barry and former Irish Tarmac champion Eamonn Boland.

And Marty McCormack interrupts his French Citroen Racing Trophy campaign, switching from his C2R2 Max to drive a production Subaru Impreza.

The Scottish line-up is headed by new IRC champion-elect Juho Hanninen (Skoda) with Meeke at two and last year’s Scottish winner Guy Wilks (Skoda) at three.

Out-going champion Meeke is in Sardinia this weekend where he is supporting Paulo Andreucci’s bid to win the Italian championship for Peugeot.

“We're here to help Paolo and Peugeot, pure and simple,” said Meeke who will drive an S2000 207 supplied by Peugeot Sport in France.

“However, it will be good to get back in the car on gravel ahead of the Scottish round.”
