Reports in the UK suggest that Chris Atkinson has inveseted money he received  from Subaru, following their withdrawal from the WRC, to rent the best car available to him, which was a PH Sport Citroen C4 WRC.

Rally Ireland is the only event officially confirmed due to the small budget, but  Atkinson hopes to extend the deal, with the help of Citroen Sport, to be able to contest eight events in the junior M2 team.

"This is a wonderful opportunity for me as I will be able to compete against Sebastien Loeb in a similar car," Atkinson told the Sydney Morning Herald. "Obviously my aim is to be as competitive with him and Dani Sordo as soon as possible."

It is expected that September's Repco Rally Australia will be a part of Atkinson's program for 2009.
