It is exactly 12 months since PEUGEOT UK unveiled its new rising young rally star. The new team has come a long way in such a short time, and now its driver, Chris Ingram, has a chance to be crowned vice champion in one of the sport’s most competitive championships, as the 2015 ERC Junior series reaches an exciting climax on the Barum Czech Rally Zlín.



Co-driven by Gabin Moreau, Ingram has been by far the top British driver in the ERC Junior championship this year, and has challenged for rally wins throughout the series, with strong performances on snow, tarmac and gravel. Despite ferocious international competition, the 21-year-old Manchester-based driver has driven consistency which he has developed into driving with great speed, illustrated by Ingram’s magnificent victory on Rally Azores.

Of the 27 ERC Juniors, Ingram is one of only five drivers in with a chance of finishing runner-up in the prestigious ERC Junior championship, and his season-long form makes him the pre-event favourite to succeed.

This year’s Barum Czech Rally Zlín takes place over 15 fast, narrow and often bumpy Tarmac stages in southern Moravia, with the 142 miles of flat-out competition made all the more demanding by the changeable grip levels and unpredictable weather. The tricky nature of the event should be ideally suited to the superb handling and performance capabilities of the PEUGEOT UK, TOTAL Lubricants and PEUGEOT Financial Services supported 208 R2 rally car.

Chris Ingram wanted to finish a great 12 months with Peugeot UK on a high, but suffered a very nasty high-speed roll on SS11.
