Peter focused on France

Kenyan rally driver Peter Horsey heads to France for this weekends World Rally Championship event on the back of two strong rallies in a row and will be aiming for a strong run on the final tarmac rally of his year. This event is also the penultimate round of his Pirelli Star Driver season.

A fortnight ago Peter enjoyed a number of top three stage times on the sixth round of the Kenyan National Rally Championship before punctures robbed him of a strong overall result. A week later Peter had a competitive run on only his second ever visit to the MSA British Rally Championship. Peter experienced his first ever night time stage and was on the fringes of the top ten overall by the end of the high speed International Rally of Yorkshire.

With no time to dwell on the last two events Peter is now on his way to France to join up with regular co-driver Calvin Cooledge for Rallye de France. After taking time to adapt to tarmac rallying last time out in Germany, Peter will be hoping to use those lessons to good effect this weekend. After two great gravel rallies in a row, I'm a little apprehensive about going straight into another tarmac rally. I learnt a lot in Germany and have been told that the French stages are a bit more flowing, which could suit my driving style a bit better!

Rallye de France is new to the World Rally Championship for 2010. The Strasbourg based event replaces Rally Corsica in the series and will count towards all three support series. The rally is also the fifth and penultimate round of the 2010 Pirelli Star Driver scheme with only Wales Rally GB left on the calendar.
