Peugeot Rally Academy drivers José Suarez and Jordan Berfa will get their first official outing of 2016 as they face the upcoming Rallye Monte-Carlo.

Suarez, partnered with Candido Carrera will take lead for the team in the WRC2 class in his Peugeot 208T16 and got to sample similar conditions that will face them this weekend in a pre-rally test last week.

“It’s great to be joining the Peugeot Rally Academy this season” said Suarez. “It’s an important step in my career and I couldn’t be more fired up! Last week, we were able to test the 208T16 in snow and rain and I feel very confident with the set-up the team has found.

“I’ve obviously got a great deal to learn because the Monte will only be my second drive in an R5 car. There are 15 drivers on the WRC2 entry list but I’m still hoping for a good result.”

In the WRC3 category Berfa will take on eight other competitors in a Peugeot 208R2, co-piloted by Damien Augustin and the duo are looking forward to getting stuck in to the action. “The team gave us an opportunity to get our first run on snow in the 208R2” said Berfa.

“My aim on my first event this year is to figure at the sharp end of the WRC3 standings but that will require staying out of trouble and being completely focused from start to finish, because the Monte -Carlo is a very long event and one of the toughest in the world.”
