Olivier Quesnel, director of Citroen Racing and Peugeot Sport, have hired Petter Solberg as a guest-driver for the 2011 IRC opening event Rallye Monte-Carlo. Petter Solberg will drive a Peugeot 207 Super 2000 car.

- I was very surprised when Olivier Quesnel, director of Citroen Racing and Peugeot Sport, contacted me and asked if I would be a guest-driver for the 2011 IRC Rallye Monte-Carlo in January, says Petter Solberg. - Of course I had to accept! The manufacturer team will run the car, and they wanted to hire me for this event to secure a good result for the team. As for me, this means more competitive kilometres in a rally car and a new experience, as I have not entered an IRC event before. There is also live coverage of some of the stages, which will be exciting. This is a one-time arrangement, and I have no plans for a future in the IRC. My plan is still to be in the WRC, and fight for the championship in 2011.

Rallye Monte-Carlo starts in Valence on 19 January 2011 and ends in Monaco 22 January. A long with Petter there will be 5 other cars run by the French Manufacturer, which is a part of PSA Peugeot Citroen.
