>>WRCnews The new Citroen hybrid n Suzuki on the brink SUZUKI personnel were saying little at the Rallye Catalunya about the manufacturer’s future plans, especially about whether they will stay in the WRC in 2009. Suzuki Motor company representative Ryohei Matsumoto was cagey. “We are busy making plans for 2009 but there is no commitment at this time that we will continue in the FIA World Rally Championship,”he said. “We expect to be able to announce what we will do at Rally Japan.” Rally Japan is the penultimate round of the 2008 series and takes place four weeks after Catalunya. However, there was cautious optimism in the Suzuki camp. “New Zealand was a breakthrough for us,”said the newly appointed team Director Shusuke Inagaki. “For the first time we had no technical failure with our cars, the same here in Spain. We are happy with this.” Newly appointed team Director Shusuke Inagaki Wilks looks to the future THE Guy Wilks Club is now in full flight, aimed to raise funds in order to secure a place for the British driver at World Championship level in 2009. “The project has been a spectacular success up to now,” said Wilks. “The promised support means we already have a decent programme in a World Rally Car in 2009, and we are now working hard to make it possible to fund a full championship programme.” Wilks ended his 2007 programme with a remarkable drive to sixth place on Rally Ireland and winning the British championship later that year. This year he has continued in an official Mitsubishi car in the British series, supplemented by drive for the JAS Motorsport Honda Civic. 17
