Sarrazin set for WRC return at Tour de Corse

Stéphane Sarrazin is set for a return to the FIA World Rally Championship in October as the series heads to France for the Tour de Corse behind the wheel of a Ford Fiesta WRC entered by First Motorsport.

Sarrazin will head in to the rally with a positive mood having taken a victory last year (when the rally wasn’t part of the WRC), joined by Jacques-Julien Renucci, they will compete under the colours of KCMG Composites and ORECA Store.

“I’m happy to be at the start of the Tour de Corse. It’s a rally that I particularly appreciate” said Sarrazin. “I’m also very pleased to return to the World Championship,

“Of course my objectives aren’t the same as last year. WRC contenders are very high quality drivers! We’re going to fight with what we’ve got: a certain knowledge of the site, a perfect harmony with the team and a good understanding of the car on that type of roads.

“Obviously I’ll have to find the right pace again but that’s the reason why I took part in two other rallies those last couple of weeks. We want to rely on consistency: our aim is to avoid the several pitfalls that we could encounter in this edition. We’ll do the math at the end, with the idea of ‘rocking the boat’ somewhere in our minds!”
