Meeke not giving up without a fight

Kris Meeke will have an upgraded Peugeot 207 S2000 for the next round of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge series.

The defending champion from Dungannon crashed out of the Rally d'Italia at the weekend, his third non-finish of the season, but insists he can still retain his title.

“We will turn this around,” pledged Meeke.

“We've got some developments coming to the engine and the suspension for the next event (the Ypres Rally in Belgium). They will make a difference.”

“The good thing for me is that we don’t really have any more rough gravel rallies this season. In fact, of the six rallies to come I’ve won four so the fight for the championship is still open.”
