    Two passes of the national rally, only saw 2 Mirages (and a different one each time).... that's not good, assuming all three started.

    Hope they get it sorted because it looks and sounds great though, if a bit oversteery.... might need that wing homologation speeding up.

    32? They're knocking them out quick now.

    What will Hannu's team use it for?

    The team is a bit of a combination. Last I heard (been a while, but the cars have not changed since, so I presume still accurate) it was a single full-time employee who took care of the cars. Rallying in Denmark is very much a grass-roots, do-it-yourself business without any specialist companies.
    The guy in charge is former driver and mechanic Kjeld Seidler, who now works as technical director for Peugeot Denmark, with influence from both Christian Jensen and Brian Madsen. The intricacies I don't really know, but it seems to be Jensen in charge of the day-to-day maintenance of his car, Brian or Kim Madsen in charge of the same for the R2 and then they have their own mechanics for their own car at events.

    From memory (I was born in 1990, so not completely certain), but the only official Peugeot absence from Danish rallying seems to be at the end of the 306 and 106 Maxi-era until Christian Jensen and Karl-Åge Jensen (no relation) got the importer on board for the 207 S2000-project, which then developped into the current R5.
    The beginning of the presence I'm not completely sure of, but the legendary Jens Ole Kristiansen had official support in the mid-80s when he drove a home-built "205 T16". He helped start up the current project before retiring to Spain by the way.
    Great info Christian!
