    WRC Disaster for Peugeot !!

    BURNS IN HOSPITAL AND OUT OF THE DECIDER!

    Peugeot's chance of retaining its drivers' and manufacturers' World
    Rally Championship ended last night when the French company
    announced the withdrawal of driver Richard Burns from this weekend's
    Wales Rally GB.

    Burns, who fainted at the weekend, was hospitalised in London.
    Peugeot told Reuters late last night: "Doctors will give an update
    today on their diagnosis and the seriousness of his state of health.
    They have already declared that Richard Burns will not be authorised
    to recce and to enter [the rally]."

    That isn't good news to hear. hope he gets better soon, not that it will matter on the world title.

    hehe...I shouldn't laugh since I am a Pug supporter....

    My question is will they still run 3 cars?? may be they will put Gilles Pannizi in there. whistle

    Cheers

    PS. I am a big fan of Gilles Pannizi

    PSS. I actually don't mind Citroen to win, only if Carlos Saintz is winning...cos he has been the underdog at Cit sport for this season.

    Or maybe Valentino Rossi he tried Rally GB last year in a Pug (private sponsor) and I believe he wasn't slow (didn't finish though).

    Freddy Loix has been entered as sub.,and Gilles Pinizzi is driving a non works 206WRC(Bozian Racing I think). Peugeot have a formibible team with Grunholm, Rovenpera & Loix and Pinizzi as back up for manufacturers points. Clearly a Pug driver cannot win drivers champ now.
