Fuchs joins Symtech for PWRC bid

Nicolas Fuchs will join Symtech Racing for the remainder of the Production Car World Rally Championship, starting from the next round in Greece.
Peruvian rally champion Nicolas Fuchs will join Symtech Racing for the rest of the Production Car World Rally Championship this year, starting from the next round on the Acropolis Rally in Greece.

Last year, Symtech Racing claimed four victories with New Zealander Haydon Paddon en route to the PWRC championship title. The campaign underlined both the competitiveness and reliability of Symtech's cars: values that have convinced Fuchs to continue his PWRC campaign in Europe with the Belgian team. He will use a Subaru Impreza identical to that in which Paddon clinched the title in 2011.

"We were all able to see last year how quick and reliable the Symtech Racing Subaru Impreza was, and I was also impressed by the professionalism of the whole team," Fuchs commented, "Once my budget was finalised, it was an easy decision: I was going to take the plunge with Symtech.

"In order to reduce costs, I used my own car in Mexico and Argentina and, up to now, we've been second twice and that puts us in a good position in the PWRC standings. The next rallies are going to be very interesting and I'm already really looking forward to working with Symtech."

The team's Dirk van der Sluys was delighted with the latest development, which complements Symtech's organisation of Rally Class, a new competition that runs within the World Rally Championship this year using strictly identical Group N Subaru Impreza.

"It's great to be back at the cutting-edge of the PWRC again, with a driver of Nico's calibre, who is going to allow us to fight at the front," van der Sluys said, "Our objective will be once more to win! And we're sure that's going to be possible with Nicolas Fuchs."
