Not only did it guide Nicolas Vouilloz and Kris Meeke to back-to-back IRC drivers’ crowns in 2008 and 2009 respectively, it also helped Peugeot to two of its three IRC manufacturers’ titles.
The last time the squad was in action in Sanremo it helped Thierry Neuville to victory in a Peugeot 207 Super 2000 by 1.5s, the team’s 13th outright win in the IRC and, to date, its last.
“I was flat out on that last stage, it was incredible and I can’t believe the result,” Neuville said at the time. “I pushed really hard, it was such a nice battle over the weekend, so intensive because the IRC is such a competitive championship. The car felt good, I am so happy.”
