ERC: Meeke tips Breen for big things

Kris Meeke reckons Citroen stablemate Craig Breen has what it takes to succeed in the European Rally Championship.
Kris Meeke has backed Craig Breen to follow in his footsteps and win the European Rally Championship title in the future.

Breen and Meeke are currently sharing test-driving duties in Peugeot's R5-specification 208 T16 and Meeke - who recently made his return to the World Rally Championship little more than a month after driving a Peugeot 208 T16 as the course car on the ERC's Geko Ypres Rally - believes that the young star from Ireland has what it takes to make the grade.

“He's shown in the junior categories that he's a clever guy and able to win championships,” Meeke noted, “He's got a fantastic opportunity with Peugeot and the Peugeot Rally Academy, and he's getting more and more experience and building up his speed on each event.

“He asks the right questions and sucks in the information. He can definitely go faster and win the championship next year. He has a bright future ahead of him.”

Breen will be back on ERC duty on LOTOS 70th Rally Poland from 13-15 September, while Meeke has been confirmed in Citroën's factory line-up for the WRC round in Australia the same weekend.
