It's rally-week again, and the Petter Solberg World Rally Team is in Strasbourg and ready for the 11th event of the season, Rallye de France. After 35 years on the Mediterranean island Corsica, the event has now moved to the mainland and the Alsace-region.

For the Rallye de France Petter Solberg World Rally Team will run two cars. As usual there is Petters C4, and the second car is Petters Xsara from 2009, which will be driven by 2008 WTCC Champion Yvan Muller. The Xsara will be run in cooperation with Automeca.

- I'm quite excited about another event on tarmac, says Petter Solberg. - We have done a full day of testing before the event, with a good result. Also we know from both Bulgaria and Germany, that we are competitive on tarmac. I also think it will be good fun for all of us to have Yvan with us in the team this weekend, and I'm sure he will enjoy the rally, as the Xsara is amazing on tarmac!

A total of 69 cars are on the entry list for the Rallye de France, and 20 new stages. First stage starts Friday morning.
