With six rallies behind them and five to go, Guy and Phil remain optimistic that their fortunes for the rest of 2011 will turn around in their IRC title hunt. After the disappointment in the Azores, the pair feels there is everything to play for in the forthcoming venues, with there being points-and-a-half available in Scotland and double-points in Cyprus.

Wilks, who is driving a Peugeot UK-backed 207 Super 2000 is presently placed sixth and 38 points adrift of the leader, Juho Hänninen.

Team manager, Marc Van Dalen said: “Everything is still possible with many rallies left including multi-points-scoring Scotland and Cyprus. It is very important Guy is on the podium but for sure he has the speed to do it and we know the car is at the right level.  I know Guy is 100 per cent motivated to be successful and so are we.”

Barum Czech Rally Zlín takes place from Friday 26 – Sunday 28 August and counts as round seven of the 11-event IRC season.

Still flying the flag as the top placed UK team, Peugeot UK and driver pairing Guy Wilks and Phil Pugh will be fully focused on producing a strong result and scoring valuable points towards the Championship.
