Peugeot rallies to the motorsport cause

OCTAGON Motorsport has taken delivery of 24 Peugeot 206 XS models for use at its rally schools at Brands Hatch and Silverstone.

Chris Epstein, group engineering manager at Octagon, said: 'The cars have been stripped to their bare shells and completely rebuilt as rally cars, incorporating full roll cages, a fire safety system, sports seats and harnesses, close ratio gearbox and rally suspension.'

Darren Smith, Peugeot fleet marketing manager, said: 'With Peugeot's rally success, particularly over the last two years, it makes sense to raise our profile and awareness of the 206 by introducing these cars as teaching vehicles.'
