Two of the three Peugeot 2008 DKR that it acquired PH Sport after the Dakar 2016 found owner with the occasion of the Morocco Rally. Khalid Al-Qassimi and Harry Hunt were put to their controls in the penultimate round of the Rally World Cup Cross-Country, with the aim of preparing for their participation in the Dakar rally 2017, any time you Hunt decided to leave X-Raid. However, what seemed to be a great project for the british has ended in fiasco. Harry Hunt will miss the Dakar 2017 for the injuries you suffered after the accident he had in the Morocco Rally.
Although the british pilot do not want to reveal the aftermath of the mishap, Harry Hunt has announced through its social networks that will not be in the next Dakar at the controls of one of the Peugeot 2008 DKR16 PH Sport as he had planned. The ex-pilot of the WRC and one of the promises of british raids will have to wait to be able to compete with the buggy French until the start of the Rally World Cup Cross-Country, a category in which it expects to be able to fight for the title during 2017.
The floor of Harry Hunt, in principle, does not mean that the
Peugeot 2008 DKR16 that raced in the Rally of Morocco is not able to be in
South america the next month of January, as the French team has been able to repair
no major problems, the damages incurred in the mishap and it is very likely that
PH Sport look for another pilot to rent your buggy. However, the Peugeot
2008 DKR16 is a vehicle really attractive in the face of the
Dakar. However, we talk about the buggy that dominated with an iron fist edition
2016 the raid more hard of the world.
