Meeke & Nagle Will Not Be Racing For Citroen Again In 2018 WRC

Kris Meeke and Kerry’s Paul Nagle will not be racing for Citroen again in the 2018 World Rally Championship.

Citroën have announced that they’ve taken the decision “due to an excessively high number of crashes, some of which were particularly heavy and could have had serious consequences with regard to the crew’s safety, and given that the risks involved were unjustified by the sporting stakes at play”.

In the same statement Pierre Budar said: “This wasn’t an easy decision to make because it effects a driver and a co-driver, but it is largely founded on safety issues which come under my preoccupations as Team Principal. We have consequently chosen to make this decision as a preventive measure.”
