Test key for Arzeno

Rising star Mathieu Arzeno says his Saintéloc Racing team’s pre-Sibiu Rally test will help him to overcome his absence of gravel experience in his Peugeot 207 Super 2000.

Although Arzeno has used his Peugeot on two rounds of the IRC on asphalt, this week’s trip to Romania will mark his first start on a loose-surface event in the car.

"This rally will be our first experience on gravel with a four-wheel-drive car,” said Arzeno.

"Unlike the Citroën DS3 R3 [I use on gravel events in France] you have to drive much more aggressively. To boost our confidence we will have a test to prepare and fine-tune our set-up. Even though we’ll be up against the best drivers in the IRC we’re aiming for a podium in the Sibiu Rally."
