Mitsubishi hopes fading fast
- 5th March 2007, 11:25am
Speaking to RallySport Magazine today, Pedder said that all hopes of driving his Lancer Evo 9 in this year’s championship had just about gone.
“It’s looking very, very, very unlikely that we’ll be doing the ARC,” he said.
“Mitsubishi have all but confirmed that we won’t have a budget for gravel rallying, but there could be a possibility that we will do some tarmac events,” he added.
Pedder said that team boss, Alan Heaphy, has a meeting at Mitsubishi in Adelaide tomorrow to discuss the season ahead.
“It looks like 2007 will be a quiet year. I’d like to try and make sure that I can return to the ARC in 2008,” Pedder said.
He added that if Mitsubishi didn’t have a future in the Australian Championship, he and Heaphy would consider other options, including building a Super 2000 car.
