'Rocket' Suárez, premieres the 208 R5 Evo in Rally of Portugal


José Antonio ‘Rocket’ Suarez returns to action in WRC2. The Spanish driver competed during the past month of January, the Monte carlo Rally, and since then has not returned to take part in a rally in the World. For this reason, and above all, for the premiere of the Peugeot 208 T16 R5 Evo, the appointment in the neighbouring country will be very special for the spaniard. In fact, ‘Rocket’ has great hopes placed in the second appointment of its programme with Peugeot Sport that the during the past month completed an important test with the new car, being advised well by Carlos Sainz.

With this perspective in mind, ‘Rocket’ has shown to be really enthusiastic about upon his return to the competition and with the performance achieved during the above-mentioned test, with Sainz, that also took place in Portugal: finally comes the second event of the year in the World with the Peugeot 208 T16. I am very hopeful with the new car, it has been evolved in good part, especially engine and suspension. Carlos Sainz has done a great job in this and in the setup for my unit. We have worked together and the experience that I have added is incalculable“.

Despite the good feelings that treasures ‘Rocket’
Suarez with the new car, the Spanish driver you prefer not to talk about
specific objectives: you don’t want me obsessing with the result, we have
continue to learn, grow as a pilot and evolve. If we act thus,
results will arrive. I Hope that the Portugal Rally is a test of more normal
that the one we had in Monte carlo, with a more homogeneous, although the
sections of land will be broken and you have to be careful with it. The main thing is to get
the goal and complete the prueba
