IRC: Hunt confirms 2011 schedule

Harry Hunt: After winning the IRC 2WD Cup last year I'm really excited about the challenge I'll face trying to defend my title.

Reigning Intercontinental Rally Challenge 2WD Cup champion Harry Hunt has confirmed the remainder of his IRC schedule for 2011.

The London-based Briton, who beat Kevin Abbring and Rafael Tulio to the IRC 2WD Cup title in 2010, will contest Tour de Corse, Geko Ypres Rally, Sata Rallye Acores, Barum Czech Rally Zlin, Rallye Sanremo, RACMSA Rally of Scotland and the Cyprus Rally.

Hunt, who began his IRC 2WD Cup defence on Rallye Monte-Carlo in January, will drive a Citroen DS3 R3 alongside co-driver Sebastian Marshall. The Welsh I Cars Motorsport operation will prepare and maintain Hunt's car.

“After winning the IRC 2WD Cup last year I'm really excited about the challenge I'll face trying to defend my title,” said Hunt.

“Obviously it's going to be more difficult this year because I'm stepping up in terms of car performance and I'm going to face even more rivals.

“But I'm doing a good spread of events and I've got a good chance to learn even more. I'll certainly be doing my best to get some good results and build my experience.”

This year, all drivers in any two-wheel-drive rally car built to Group A, Group N and Group R regulations are eligible for the IRC 2WD Cup drivers' title. Only those car makes registered as an IRC manufacturer are permitted to score IRC 2WD Cup manufacturers' points.
