Peter Thul has been selected to become the Senior Director Sport at WRC Promoter.
For several years he worked as the head of Volkswagen’s PR department and was involved, among other things, during the company’s WRC venture.
But since 2017 he runs his own company in the PR industry and manages Škoda Motorsports’ PR department. The 57-year-old German has been involved in the rally sport for many years.
In the early 90’s he was the co-driver for Dieter Depping, which produced a couple of the German Rally Championship titles along with successes in the FIA European Rally Championship.
In recent years he has been the co-driver for Michael Gerber in everything from an Audi Quattro Sport to Toyota Corolla WRC in shows and competition, such as in the popular Rally Legends.
His role at the WRC Promoter will start on 1 August to become an important link between FIA, WRC Promoter and the teams in the series.
First, it is about securing this year’s championship with the rounds, securing next year’s calendar and finally securing the 2022 series when new exciting regulations are put into operation.
