IRC: Wittmann excited by IRC schedule

Franz Wittmann has confirmed that he will tackle seven more European-based IRC events in 2010.
Franz Wittmann has spoken of his delight after finalising his Intercontinental Rally Challenge schedule in his Interwetten Racing Peugeot 207 S2000.

The Austrian had contemplated contesting the South American rounds in Brazil and Argentina next month but will instead focus on a programme of European-based events, starting with the fourth round of the series in Sardinia. He will also compete in Ypres, Acores, Zlin, Asturias, Sanremo and Cyprus.

"I'm so happy to get everything sorted out and to know I am going back to some events I know from last year," said Wittmann. "We have a good mixture of tarmac and gravel events and I can't wait to experience these rallies and get more knowledge of driving my Peugeot 207."

Wittmann, who began his 2010 IRC campaign on Rallye Automobile Monte-Carlo last month, wants to contest a handful of practice rallies and also test his Romo Motorsporttechnik-run car prior to Rally d'Italia-Sardegna, which runs from 4-6 June.
