Mitsubishi is withdrawing from WRC just before the rally in their home country, bummer another 2 cars lesser for the rest of the season

Mitsubishi withdraws
23 Jul, 09:25

Mitsubishi has confirmed rumours that it will pull out of the World Rally Championship following the Deutschland Rally at the end of August.

The withdrawal is described as a temporary measure to enhance development of the car and cut costs. It will mean that the Japanese company will miss the first World Championship rally in its homeland, which takes place in early September.

“The focus for the remainder of the season will be to develop the Lancer WRC. Mitsubishi Motors will use one or two selected European rallies as an intensive test and development platform for the Lancer WRC. The new WRC programme for 2004 will not affect Mitsubishi Motors’ long-term programme to the FIA World Rally Championship until 2006,” a press statement claimed.
