IRC: Sibiu Rally becomes IRC Supporter Event

Romania's biggest rally event, the Sibiu Rally, was announced as the latest of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge Supporter Events from 2010 last week.

The IRC Supporter Event scheme aims to help selected national events 'benefit from the prestige of being associated with the IRC' through the strengths of the IRC brand, and through promoting themselves internationally via on-demand video highlights available on the IRC website.

"Today's announcement marks a great opportunity for the Sibiu Rally to make its name in Europe and the wider motor sport world. The partnership with the IRC is also a big opportunity to promote tourism in the city of Sibiu," said Berti Panaiot, the Sibiu Rally PR and Marketing manager.

"It is a first step towards our goal of one day joining the Intercontinental Rally Challenge calendar, and to learn from and work alongside our colleagues from this fantastic global series."

The Sibiu Rally is a demanding gravel event in the Paltinis region of Romania, and also features a dramatic Superspecial stage on which competitors are able to compete side-by-side in a natural amphitheatre to huge crowds.

Hosting the event is the vibrant city of Sibiu, which was European Capital of Culture in 2007.

"The Sibiu Rally is an impressive event, with dedicated and enthusiastic organisers, competitors and volunteers," added Xavier Gregory, IRC general co-ordinator.

"We believe there is a very close fit between our series and this event, and we welcome them to the IRC Supporter Event scheme."
