Magalhaes set for Monte debut

Monte Carlo debut beckons for Bruno Magalhaes in January
Bruno Magalhaes is set to make his Monte Carlo Rally debut next season in a Peugeot 207 Super 2000. 



The Portuguese driver has contested selected rounds of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge in recent seasons, claiming an impressive second overall on Rali Vinho Madeira earlier this year.

He covered approximately 170 kilometres during a test in France recently and was satisfied with his performance. 



"It was the first time in my life I drove in the snow so the test helped a lot," he said. "I managed to adapt quickly even though the conditions are nothing like I have experienced in the Portuguese championship.

"The mountains were very cold and there was lots of snow and ice, not like a normal asphalt stage, which will make it a demanding rally if the conditions are the same.

“We had all the options of tyres available so we could learn how the car behaved in different circumstances.”
