Meeke to stay with Peugeot for 2010

Kris Meeke, Peugeot, Scotland 2009Intercontinental Rally Challenge champion Kris Meeke will remain with Peugeot for next season.

The Northern Irish driver confirmed his decision during last weekend's Rally of Scotland. Meeke and his co-driver Paul Nagle will tackle an increased programme of rallies in 2010, when they will start 10 IRC rounds in the 207 S2000.

"We have to try and hold the baton now into next year and just try to keep this rhythm," said Meeke. "We've clicked on something that just works. I have to say that I don't think it could get much better than this.

"We're already now thinking about next year, with Monte Carlo just around the corner. There has been a bit of uncertainty over the last few months, but we've finally dotted the 'i's and crossed the 't's and for me it is absolutely impossible to put into words how grateful I am to Peugeot UK and Kronos for the opportunities they have given me this year.

"Everyone talks about the other cars getting stronger and the 207 getting older but I know Peugeot Sport have given me the commitment next year to push the car to its maximum and I'm very happy to be staying around with them for next year."

Meeke's fifth win of the year, which he celebrated in Stirling on Saturday, could be under threat as the event scrutineers will examine his Peugeot today. A decision on whether the car is legal and the win stands is expected later today.
