Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle aiming for Sanremo double

1 Mins read

Twelve months ago the Peugeot UK pairing of Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle claimed the Intercontinental Rally Challenge title with victory on Rally Sanremo, and despite facing an uphill battle to retain the title, they are aiming for victory on the rally.

Sanremo is the final asphalt event of the 2010 IRC season, and will see no fewer than 32 Super 2000 cars entered, to-date.

The quantity of competition which Meeke and Nagle will face in Sanremo is bolstered by the quality of the competition, as the rally winners from each year since 2004 feature in the entry list, meaning that spectators can look forward to an intense battle from start to finish.

Peugeot will field five of their latest 207 S2000 Evolutions in the rally, and they will pit themselves against the revised Skoda Fabia S2000.

The 207 Evolution has the benefit of a new 300bhp power plant, new front suspension, an optimised transmission, upgraded brakes, amongst other changes.

Rally Sanremo comprises eleven special stages, covering a total distance of over 220 kilometres, including a night stage of 44km on Friday evening.
