Meeke happy with position
Kris Meeke is seeded No.1 in the Monte Carlo Rally line-up as befits his role as Intercontinental Challenge champion but he starts the classic event from seventh place on the road.
The Ulsterman was fourth fastest in his Kronos Racing Peugeot 207 on last night’s prologue stage which does not count in the official classification but was used to determine the start positions for the top 10 crews.
”I’m happy with my position,” said Meeke. “I didn’t want to be first on the road but at the same time this was a good opportunity to test the conditions.”
