Description

This book tells the story of how Kris Meeke and Peugeot UK won the Intercontinental Rally Championship in their rookie year, from the disastrous opening round in Monte Carlo, to the ecstasy of winning the San Remo rally and the championship in the same weekend. This is the gripping tale of how Kris and Peugeot defied expectations and made their mark on this highly competitive championship. There are those who felt that Kris was quick but lacked the consistency to succeed at the highest level – but the man from Dungannon proved them wrong in the style of his mentor and rally legend, Colin McRae. The best of Kris is still to come.

The author

Rallying is in Simon McBride's blood; his dad took him to spectate at his first rally when he was just 11 months old. Simon went on to combine his love of motorsport and journalism for a living, starting his career on work experience with two very different titles: a local weekly from his home town, The Larne Gazette, and a national weekly, Motorsport News. After reading Media Studies at the University of London he accepted a job with Wilmington Publishing, where he was staff writer for its automotive titles. He then worked at Auto Express for two years, before deciding to go freelance. So far, Simon has competed as a works driver for Skoda and Abarth on a rally and hillclimb.
