IRC: Al Rajhi announces six-event deal with Kronos

OFFICIAL: Yazeed Al Rajhi to begin his IRC programme on the Tour de Corse in May.

Yazeed Al Rajhi will return to the Intercontinental Rally Challenge in 2011, only this time the Saudi Arabian will embark on an expanded programme of events.

Al Rajhi made a one-off appearance in the IRC on Rally d'Italia-Sardegna last June in a Kronos Racing Peugeot 207 Super 2000. He will continue with the Belgian squad in the IRC this season but is planning to tackle six rounds, starting with May's Tour de Corse, where Kronos will also be running 207 S2000s for team regulars Thierry Neuville and Briton Guy Wilks.

Marc van Dalen, the joint boss of Kronos Racing, is delighted to be welcoming Al Rajhi back to his team for a third consecutive season.

“Yazeed wants to learn asphalt rallies because his experience on this surface is not so big,” he said. “It's also great for us to have him in the team again because it's the third year in a row that he has been with us. He's a good guy and will have the latest specification Peugeot available.”

Al Rajhi, who will be co-driven by Matthieu Baumel, has still to be finalise his exact schedule.
