    I thought the 208 R2 should have started its first official outing at next month's Ulster Rally
    It's absent from current entrylist on Home

    Impressive result for Evans in the Fiesta R2 with 2nd overall in Ulster!

    Any times or reactions on the Pug 208 R2?

    According to Peugeot-Sport press release, Craig Breen would have been fastest of R2s on 5 occasions during the Ulster Rally...absolutely NO mechanical incidents(reliability 100%)


    Edit: by end september the 208 will be back to Britain at the BRC Open Days to be tested by customers interested in, and then in october Sanremo(IRC/CIR) + Var(last event of french tarmac championship)
    They also talk about two gravel events but don't tell where

    From latest news there would be two 208 R2s from Peugeot-Sport at the rallye du Var last event of the french tarmac rallies championship: one for Germain Bonnefis(about to be crowned french gravel champion)and the other possibly(but not sure yet)for Jérémi Ancian(if crowned Volant 207 winner at the terre des Cardabelles)

    No news about who will drive the car at Sanremo though...an italian driver maybe

    Can't wait for next friday
    Would be fantastic if Bouffier could set times in the "middle" of the best R3 drivers
