MONTE CARLO RALLY 3/3
Skoda have decided to withdraw their
two new Octavia WRC's from the race
before the competitive stages start
on Monday morning.
They took the action as a result of
engine software problems which could
not be completely resolved in time.
"We are here to learn and these
experiences are to be expected at this
phase of the car's development
programme," said Skoda's Pavel Janeba.
"I feel for all the Skoda fans who did
not get to see the car in action."
McRae's Ford has failed scrutineering on the water pump - he will
start the rally under appeal.
