Delecour plotting Monte Carlo entry

Francois Delecour aiming to compete on Rally Monte Carlo with a Peugeot 207
Rallying legend Francois Delecour, who won Rallye Monte-Carlo in 1994, is close to finalising an agreement to contest the opening round of next season's Intercontinental Rally Challenge.

The 48-year-old Frenchman is set to drive a Peugeot 207 Super 2000 on the centenary edition of the asphalt rally alongside co-driver Dominic Savignoni.

"When I saw the itinerary and remembered the rally was 100 years old I realised I had to do the event," he said. "We still need to find some of the budget and a lot of the budget will be for the tyres because I need the complete choice to give myself the best chance that I can.

"I still have a big motivation to succeed, I'm completely fit and I know stages such as Le Moulinon and Burzet better than anybody else on the rally."

Delecour started 96 WRC events during his career and made his final appearance on Rally GB back in 2002 before Mitsubishi's withdrawal left him without a drive.
