>>WRCnews eat? WRC stars take to Super 2000 PETTER Solberg secretly tested a Fiat Abarth Grande Punto S2000 car in Italy recently as part of an experience-gaining exercise, to find out whether he could accept an invitation to contest the Sata Rallye Acores round of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge in May. During the Rally of Portugal, Solberg said the chance of competing in Azores was only “50/50", and now it seems it will not happen. But Citroen Junior team driver Conrad will compete at the Sata Rallye Acores, which will be his first outing in a Peugeot. “It will also be the first time I have driven a Super 2000 car,”he added. “This will be a great opportunity for me to start finding out about the sort of cars which we will have to drive in the future.” The car will be run by the PH Sport company with whom the Zimbabwean has had a long and successful partnership since his Junior World Championship Super 1600 days. PH Sport manager Bernard Piallat commented: “It will also be the first time we have run a Super 2000 or a Peugeot for that matter. Azores is going to be a great journey of discovery for us as well!” PCWRC gets strange new rules … SOME score points, some can’t. The FIA has approved Rally Argentina’s nomination of four extra ‘Guest’drivers in the Production Car World Rally Car category of the rally, putting the total of wildcard entries at six. This is the first time this new rule has been implemented since the World Council approved it on March 17. Under a remarkable recent FIA ruling the four extra drivers, however, will not be eligible to score PCWRC points, although the two originally nominated Guest drivers (Marcos Ligato and Gabriel Pozzo) are. The four drivers affected are Mitsubishi Tango team members Alejandro Cancio and Nicolas Madero, and Barattero Subaru drivers Claudio Menzi and Juan Marchetto. 17
