In the Rallye de France (October 12-14), French tarmac specialist Nicolas Bernardi (30) will be in the driver’s seat with Belgian co-driver Jean-Marc Fortin (39) beside him. And for the Wales Rally GB (November 30 to December 2), Suzuki has selected Finnish gravel expert Sebastian Lindholm (46) as driver and fellow Finn Tomi Tuominen (35) as co-driver.
Bernardi and Lindholm are experienced WRC pilots, so Suzuki is confident that they will deliver the desired results by the end of the year, enabling the team to fine-tune the car’s set-up for 2008.
Suzuki has also announced that Shell International Petroleum Company Limited will be supporting the Suzuki WRC challenge in addition to its existing support for the Suzuki JRC works teams.
