IRC: Alen wants to make comeback

Anton Alen: "I've been working solidly on different ways to come back, but unfortunately it's so financially tough for everyone at the moment. My motivation is stronger than ever though and I'm determined to give it 100 per cent. I know some of the IRC events already and there are some interesting new rallies coming in as well."
Finnish star Anton Alen is targeting a return to the Intercontinental Rally Challenge next season.

The 27-year-old, son of rally legend Markku Alen, was formerly an Abarth factory driver, winning Rally Russia in 2007.

However he did not have the opportunity to compete this year and he is now determined to return to the Eurosport-supported series in 2011.

"I always really enjoyed driving on the IRC, as there are some fantastic events and competitors," said Alen.

"I've been working solidly on different ways to come back, but unfortunately it's so financially tough for everyone at the moment.

“My motivation is stronger than ever though and I'm determined to give it 100 per cent. I know some of the IRC events already and there are some interesting new rallies coming in as well next year."

Alen has tested a Proton Satria Neo S2000, and also has extensive experience of Group N machinery.
