Team Peugeot-Hansen at full chat for second World RX season

After an exhilarating year, enjoyed by a total crowd of 250,000 spectators, Team Peugeot-Hansen prepares for its second World Rallycross campaign.

Hansen has been joined by new recruit 28-year old Davy Jeanney to drive the team's latest-spec Peugeot 208 WRXs.

With competitive action due to kick off very soon, the 550hp car is expected to be a fresh challenger.

As the World Rallycross Championship reconvenes for a second season, the Peugeot 208 WRX has been made even more potent as it prepares to engage with its carefully honed rivals.

Timmy Hansen, who remains with the team for a second term, said: "I am very excited. I think we have a car that has the potential to win out of the box. I feel sharper and this is surely the best car I have ever had in my career."

The list of improvements that have been made to the car is impressive, extending from the chassis to the engine. Team-Hansen's two spearheads are determined to take full advantage of the car's power to defend the colours of the programme's partners, Red Bull and Total.

Davy Jeanney, 2013 European vice-champion, explained: "It's a new challenge and I couldn't be more committed to the programme. I was really surprised when I sat behind the wheel of the 208 WRX for the very first time. Its engine feels really powerful and my aim is to up my pace as the season progresses and hopefully end up fighting for some podium finishes and even victory."
