PEUGEOT 208 RALLY CUP | BREAKING NEWS
With a little more than a month to go before the 2018 PEUGEOT 208 Rally Cupgets underway, entries are open for PEUGEOT SPORT’s one-make trophy which is organised within the framework of the FFSA French Rally Championship. Based on the PEUGEOT 208 R2, this hotly-disputed series is open to experienced and new drivers and teams alike.


The PEUGEOT 208 Rally Cup will kick off PEUGEOT SPORT’s 2018 customer competition rally programme when teams convene in southwest France for the Rallye Terre des Causses on March 30-April 1. Now in its sixthseason, the PEUGEOT SPORT-run competition pitches experienced and upcoming drivers against each other in a fiercely-fought, instructive championship at the wheel of the two-wheel drive PEUGEOT 208 R2. Younger competitors can challenge for the U23 and U27 classes which have long been seen as valuable springboards to the sport’s higher echelons and more competitive machinery.
 
PRIZES UP FOR GRABS IN 2018
 
  • Juniors aged under 23-years old (i.e. born after January 1, 1996) will be able to fight in the U23 class, the winner of which will earn a six-round ERC programme in a PEUGEOT 208 R2 on condition that they finish2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th in the overall standings at the end of the year.
 
  • Drivers aged less than 27-years old (i.e. born after January 1, 1992) will be eligible for the top U27 prize which is a high-profile programme in a four-wheel drive car if they also come first in the overall standings.
 
  • Meanwhile, in association with Eurosport, the best-placed Junior in the provisional order after Round 4 (Rallye du Rouergue) will be invited to attend the ERC Junior Experience programme.
 
  • Drivers competing in the Experts class (27-years old or over) haven’t been forgotteneither, since the best-placed finisher at the end of the season will win the opportunity to take part in a circuit-based Rencontres Peugeot Sport meeting behind the wheel of a PEUGEOT 208 Racing Cup.
