IRC: Sarrazin set for Monte Carlo test.

Ex-Subaru World Rally Team driver Stephane Sarrazin will take in the Rallye d'Antibes-Côte d'Azur this weekend, the final round of the European Rally Championship.

Sarrazin, who will spearhead Peugeot Sport's return on the 2009 Monte Carlo Rally in January, is doing the event in preparation for that outing - and as it shares several stages with the winter classic it should be extremely useful.

"I am delighted to have a chance to return to my passion which is rallying," said Sarrazin. "The Rallye d'Antibes is completely new territory for me, but it will give me an opportunity to find my marks in this discipline again."

Sarrazin, who will be co-driven by Jacques-Julien Renucci, will drive Peugeot Sport's development 207 S2000 which is a car he knows well thanks to the testing he has done at its wheel.

Nicolas Vouilloz meanwhile will drive a second Peugeot Sport-entered 207 S2000s, while Luca Rossetti, who currently leads the FIA European Rally Championship with a 14-point cushion over fellow Italian Renato Travaglia, will be entered in his usual car in the colours of Peugeot Italy.

Vouilloz is doing the event as a warm-up for the Rallye du Valais, the penultimate round in this year's Intercontinental Rally Challenge.

Vouilloz leads the IRC standings at the moment, 18 points clear of Italy's Giandomenico Basso. His position is less comfortable than it may first appear, however, since only the best seven results of each driver will be taken into account in the final reckoning, and he will lose the benefit of some of the excellent finishes he has already secured. That said, the title will be his, if he succeeds in winning the Rallye du Valais for the second year running later this month.
