RX: Stohl to compete in Argentina

Manfred Stohl to make his RX debut in Argentina alongside Petter Solberg in a second PSRX-run Citroen DS3 Supercar
Former WRC star Manfred Stohl will compete in the 2014 FIA World Rallycross Championship finale in Argentina later this month.

Stohl, who contested more than 100 WRC events between 1991 and 2012, will make his RX debut alongside Petter Solberg in a second PSRX-run Citroen DS3 Supercar.

“I have lots of friends in Argentina from my rallying days and it will be nice to go back to San Luis where I competed in national rallies and got to know the area well,” Stohl said.

“Petter and I have been good friends for a long time and I have visited him at some RX events in the past.

“Now, thanks to Petter, I have the unique opportunity to drive an RX Supercar in Argentina alongside the new World RX Champion.”

Stohl tested a Ford Fiesta RX Supercar in Austria at last week's Race of Austrian Champions in Greinbach but will not have the opportunity to test the PSRX Citroen DS3 Supercar ahead of Argentina.

“The cars were already on their way to Argentina when it was confirmed that I would be joining Petter in the PSRX team so unfortunately there hasn't been any time to test but I'm really looking forward to the race and want to get as much experience of RX as possible,” Stohl concluded.
