Meeke Makes Magic Monte DebutTue, 21 Jan 2014 00:00:00 -0800
A LITTLE over a decade since a Brit last stood on the podium in Monte Carlo, works Citroen driver Kris Meeke finished the opening round of the 2014 World Rally Championship in third place.
After enduring rain, snow and challenging road conditions, Meeke finished an impressive third in his DS3 rally car behind 2013 champion and Monte winner Sebastien Ogier’s Volkswagen Polo and local hero and Ford privateer Bryan Bouffier.
The dream result comes after Meeke and co-driver Paul Nagle were handed a full works drive by the ultra successful Citroen team at the end of last year.
Meeke’s result comes 11 years after his mentor Colin McRae finished second. Coincidently, the Scot was also driving for Citroen in 2003.
