MITSUBISHI DRIVER MAKINEN LEADS WORLD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP
AFTER UNLUCKY TOUR DE CORSE




Team Mitsubishi Ralliart's World Champion Tommi Makinen continues to lead the World Rally Championship after the sixth round, the Tour de Corse, even though he was desperately unlucky to retire on the second day of the rally when challenging strongly for the lead.

Team Mitsubishi Ralliart's young German driver Uwe Nittel emerged with flying colours from one of the toughest rallies of the season. After 408 ultra-demanding kilometres of asphalt stages, he completed the sixth round of the World Rally Championship in an encouraging eighth place in his Mitsubishi Lancer. Mitsubishi also celebrated second in the Group N production category, thanks to one of the top local drivers, Jacques Andreani.
