IRC: Loix excited after confirming return

Freddy Loix will return to the Intercontinental Rally Challenge in 2010 after inking a deal to drive a Rene Georges-run Skoda Fabia S2000.
Freddy Loix has said he is relishing the chance to return to the Intercontinental Rally Challenge later this season.

The 39-year-old from Belgium, whose deal to drive a Rene Georges-run Skoda Fabia S2000 was confirmed last week, had been left on the sidelines after leaving the Peugeot Team Belux operation at the end of last year.

"I'm very happy with my new car and my new sponsor because it is not easy to find a partner to help you," said Loix. "Also, Skoda Belgium has made some investment and that will help. I think the Fabia can be a very good car to drive and I am very happy with the news."

Loix is currently unsure of his precise programme of events but hopes to enter at least four rounds of the IRC, including the Geko Ypres Rally in June.

Meanwhile, Rene Georges Rally Sport has confirmed that Nasser Al-Attiyah will contest a total of six IRC rounds this year in the team's other Skoda Fabia Super 2000.
