Defending Intercontinental Rally Challenge Kris Meeke will have an upgraded and improved Peugeot 207 S2000 for the next round of the series, the Ypres Rally later this month.
The Northern Irish driver recorded his third non-score from five rallies on last weekend's Rally d'Italia-Sardegna, but the Peugeot UK driver refused to be downcast about the situation.
"Peugeot Sport is working absolutely flat out in the background," said Meeke. "We will turn this around. We've got some developments coming for the next event, they're in the engine and suspension. They will make a difference, they will help us."
Meeke slipped off the road in Sardinia while fighting for the lead of the Olbia-based event. Despite the disappointment of the weekend, Meeke said he couldn't wait to return to the Ypres Rally - the scene of one of his most impressive victories last season.
"Of the six rallies to come which we did last year, I've won four," said Meeke, who lost his Rally of Scotland after his Peugeot failed to comply with a technical regulation at post-event scrutineering. "I'm not saying it's going to be easy, it's not.
"But the beauty of the IRC – and some drivers like it and some don't – is that there's still a perfect score on offer here. The drivers count seven scores and there are seven rallies remaining. The championship is very, very much possible for me. I'm really excited about the second half of the year, it's going to be a tremendous battle."
