Kronos boss pleased with IRC double

Kronos Racing team boss Marc van Dalen admits he is delighted by his team's start to the Intercontinental Rally Challenge season, which has been rewarded by two wins from two starts.

Frenchman Sebastien Ogier took victory in the season opener in Monte Carlo, driving a Kronos-prepared Peugeot 207 S2000 under the BFGoodrich Drivers' Team banner, while Kris Meeke then used the same car to secure a dominant victory for the Peugeot UK team on Rally de Curitiba.

"It has been especially satisfying, not just because we have been first and second on the opening two rallies but because we have won with the BFGoodrich Drivers' Team and with Peugeot UK," van Dalen, who co-founded Kronos Racing in 1994, said.

"I have been really happy with how we have started and how well our drivers have worked together. But I know it is a very long championship and anything can happen between now and the end of the season. At least it's good to make the start we have done."

The three Kronos Peugeot 207s are currently being shipped back to Europe from Brazil and are due to be delivered to the team's base in Belgium, on 10 April where they will be rebuilt before the Sata Rally Azores in May.
