A close-formation finish for the Citroen C2s
Turkey : Citroen / JWRC - Finish
The fifty or so kilometres of the 2006 Rally of Turkey's short final leg had little effect on the JWRC leaderboard which saw CitroŽn C2 Super 1600 crews Kris Meeke/Glenn Paterson, Martin Prokop/Jan TomŠnek et Julien Pressac/Jack BoyŤre finish
in 5th, 6th and 7th places respectively.

The last day of the event: "took place in conditions that were practically back to normal with the exception of a few muddy corners," observed Kris Meeke.

However, this marked turn for the better Ė which was thanks notably to the return of bright sunshine in the Turkish sky following the violent storms of recent days Ė failed to permit the CitroŽn runners to make up for lost ground, and their case wasn't helped any by the day's low competitive distance.

Given that Kris Meeke and Glenn Patterson had been looking to win in Turkey, finishing 5th was clearly disappointing, although it still leaves them in the running for the 2006 JWRC title with just one encounter remaining, and that will be the CitroŽn pair's home round, Wales Rally GB, in early December.

"This weekend's result wasn't what we had been hoping for but we are still in with a mathematical chance of taking the Junior crown," commented Kris Meeke at the finish. With one win for the team, in Germany, and a 3rd place in Spain, the year's pickings with one round to go are "something of a disappointment," as Yves Matton, the Manager of CitroŽn Sport's Customer Competition Manager puts it.
"An accumulation of small errors has meant that we have missed out so far but I am counting on the energy and determination of Kris and Glenn and of the CitroŽn Sport Customer Competition and PH Sport teams to give it their very best shot all the way to the end of the final round which promises to be an absolute thriller."

Julien Pressac and Jack BoyŤre, who finished 8th behind the Jipocar Racing CitroŽn C2 Super 1600 of Martin Prokop and Jan Tomanek, had been hoping for a better conclusion to their final JWRC outing of the season.

"I can't say I'm pleased with this weekend's result," underlines Julien. "I was hoping for a better end to my first season in the championship. It was a very complex rally and I have once again learnt so much, including the way I read the road, especially given the conditions. I could claim that we made it to the finish without breaking anything but that's no longer the main thing. We've now got to focus on next year when performance will be vital and we will no longer be able to content ourselves with simply finishing."

The third and final leg was short but sweet for Fabien Fiandino and Sabrina De Castelli whose run was halted when the front right wheel of their CitroŽn C2-R2 became loose 3km into the penultimate stage.
