In an interesting development for the next season's WRC driver/crew line-up, Kris Meeke was found testing Citroen DS3 WRC recently. With the Loeb's full-time exit for the coming season, it becomes very obvious for us to start guessing, hence probably also creating waves in the still waters of the top level rally sport.
It is probably nice too, else the sport was becoming a little boring with only one person keep on winning and nothing new was happening. Maybe he too was feeling it, and might have decided to take a break or a different flavour of this sports has to offer. Whatever it is, the news is that there are a lot of young, energetic & capable boys who can make the difference & bring in the good old charm of fighting spirit to the stages. Now with the 2013 season's promoters too been set by the FIA rallycom team, the funding issue has definitely vanished. Atleast that is what we hope and wish for!
Below is the video of this young Brit has to show off and learn for himself of this new car. Hope it helps him perform better if not less. Dani Sordo too had tested & driven the other two makes in the WRC rallies previous this year, but that looks like it affected his pace in his Mini Countryman in later rallies.
