Entries for the Monte Carlo Rally closed today, December 22, and M-Sport has revealed the drivers it will field on the WRC special stages in 2024.
Adrien Fourmaux returns to the top flight after a year in the Ford Fiesta Rally2 in the British Rally Championship and WRC2, joined by Gregoire Munster. The Luxembourg driver has the support of Iordanis Serderidis, with whose car he raced towards the end of last year.
“Achieving this effort was the main goal of the 2023 season and I’m excited to return for a full season at Puma next year,” Fourmaux stated.
“I am grateful to M-Sport, Ford and Red Bull for having the confidence in me to give me another year at the top level and allow me to show my potential.”
For his part, Munster said:
“My participation in almost the whole season in WRC2 in 2023 was very positive, it’s the first time I had the opportunity to do almost all the WRC rallies and gain the kilometers.
“My two stints at Puma have helped me a lot to prepare for Rally1 in 2024. Working at the M-Sport team has also been incredibly useful, you see the WRC2 and Rally1 team all in the same structure, so it’s good preparation for Rally1 for to feel familiar and at home.
“I’m looking forward to starting in Monte Carlo and the aim for 2024 will be first to get some good results and pick up the pace after the races, try not to make mistakes and just get the experience. We’re riding against world champions so it’s going to be a big challenge, but I’m really looking forward to it.”
