Bonnefis, the winner of the highly competitive Volant 207 title in 2011 – Peugeot’s one-make rally series – will drive a Peugeot 207 Super 2000 on Rally San Marino this week in recognition of his continued progress.
“It’s a tremendous opportunity,” said Bonnefis. “San Marino will only be my second event outside of France.”
Bonnefis and co-driver Olivier Fournier are frontrunners in the French Gravel championship. The loose-surface Rally San Marino, round seven of the 2012 IRC season, takes place from 5-7 July.
