6 November, 2003 - As confirmed on Monday (3 November), Richard Burns will not be taking part in this weekend's Rally GB. Doctors have carried out a number of tests on Richard to find out the cause of his blackout last weekend. In the meantime Richard has been advised to rest at home for the remainder of this week and doctors will be carrying out further tests next week.

Richard comments: "I'm obviously disappointed that I won't be competing this weekend, not just for Robert (Reid) and myself, but for all the rally fans and of course the Peugeot team.

"This really isn't the way I wanted to leave Peugeot but I want to take this opportunity to thank Peugeot for all their support, not just over the past week, but over the last two years. All I can do now is wish Freddy (Loix), Marcus (Gronholm), Gilles (Panizzi) and Harri (Rovanpera) the best of luck and hope they can bring home the Manufacturers' Title for Peugeot.

"I want to thank everyone for their messages of support through this difficult period."
