IRC: Campana to compete in Corsica

Pierre Campana: To have the opportunity to participate once again in the Tour de Corse is a truly incredible thing and I can't wait to compete on home ground and with the passionate support from Corsican fans.

Corsican driver Pierre Campana will step up to a Super 2000 car when the 2011 Intercontinental Rally Challenge resumes on his home event, Tour de Corse – E.Leclerc, next month, it was confirmed recently.

The 25-year-old, who holds the joint lead of the IRC 2WD Cup with Joan Vinyes, will drive a Peugeot 207 for the Italian Munaretto team. With day two's action taking place around Campana's hometown of Corte, the rising star is relishing the prospect of competing in front of his local fans.

“To have the opportunity to participate once again in the Tour de Corse is a truly incredible thing and I can't wait to compete on home ground and with the passionate support from Corsican fans,” said Campana. “I haven't competed in Tour de Corse for three years but the new-look format is sure to be special and be like the old times.”

Campana finished on the Junior World Rally Championship podium on his last Tour de Corse outing in 2008.

“Tour de Corse is the personal highlight of the season for me, so it will give me added determination and hunger for a good result,” he added. “I'm aware that this is a good opportunity for me but it is a long event, especially the gruelling final day, so I will take it step by step and just see what happens.”
