The 77th Geneva International Motor Show Press Conference

Mr. Toshihiro SUZUKI
Board Member and Senior Managing Executive Officer, Automobile Engineering

Speech excerpt
In the JWRC, our Swift Super 1600 has an excellent record.  It has also won the first round of the Junior Rally Championship in Norway this year.

Now, with the SX4, we are going to step up to the World Rally Championship on a test basis this year. The SX4 WRC rally car is developing nicely.
Last month, we finished testing in Japan.  We will begin tests in Europe from April, then enter two World Rally Championships;
the Rallye de France in October, and the Rally GB in November.

From 2008, we will make full entry into the World Rally Championship.
