WRX: Villeneuve yes, Scott no

Category: News, WRX Posted 11.06.14 23:55 by

Jacques Villeneuve is going to race Andy Scott’s Peugeot 208 SuperCar in Hell after crashing his own 208 at Höljes today.

 

Albatec Racing Team Principal Andy Scott has made the decision to surrender his #26 Peugeot 208 to former F1 World Champion Jacques Villeneuve, after the French-Canadian rolled his car in testing at Holjës, Sweden today. The incident occurred late in the day, but the #25 208 has incurred too much damage for the Dumfries-based team to repair ahead of the third round of the 2014 FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy at Hell, Norway this weekend.

Andy will step aside to allow the enthusiastic World RX fans the chance to glimpse Jacques in action after he was forced to miss the previous round at Lydden Hill due to clashing commitments with the Indy 500. The Albatec team is aiming to give Jacques the best possible chance of victory in the 600bhp, two litre, 16v Peugeot 208 Supercar and urges the fans to show their support and get behind the former Indy 500 winner and Indycar World Series Champion over the coming weekend.
