Bryan Bouffier says competing on French soil will make him even more motivated when he resumes his bid for Intercontinental Rally Challenge glory on Tour de Corse-E.Leclerc next week.

The Rallye Monte-Carlo winner, currently two points adrift of Juho Hanninen in the race for the 2011 drivers’ title, will contest the all-asphalt event in a Peugeot France 207 Super 2000 alongside co-driver Xavier Panseri.

He said: “I will try to drive in the same way as I do on every rally. Okay I will be in France so I will be a little bit more motivated but on each race I am always motivated. It won’t change anything.”

Thirty-two-year-old Bouffier has never rallied in Corsica before but has some experience of the island’s demanding roads when former Peugeot Sport competitions boss and current IRC Motorsport Development Manager Jean-Pierre Nicolas invited him to test for Peugeot on the island a few years ago.
