Breen confirms SWRC plans

Craig Breen reveals plans to contest the Super 2000 World Rally Championship in 2012
Craig Breen, winner of the 2011 WRC Academy title, has confirmed that he will contest the Super 2000 World Rally Championship next season.

Breen will contest the full championship at the wheel of his Kel-Tech Engineering Ford Fiesta S2000, which will be prepared and run buy the Tom Gahan Motorsport team.

Breen will also take part in the FIA Institute Academy after winning a place in the 2012 Young Driver Excellence Academy.

"I'm delighted now to be able to officially announce my plans for next year,” Breen said. “Three days after claiming the WRC Academy title in November I was in Austria for the FIA Institute Trials and my schedule hasn't stopped in the intervening time but in the background we've been working on putting a package together for next season. I had envisaged moving to S2000 for 2012 with some time as this was always going to be my next step.

“Winning with WRC Academy has given me more options but I still needed to take time and make the correct choice, not just looking short term but to stand back and take a wider, more long term view of my career. My plan is to stay with my current Ford Fiesta S2000.”

Great news for Craig and following recent discussion on merits of SWRC v IRC I think I it's the right move. Current entries for SWRC suggest 2012 is going to be the most competitive ever for the series and will really sort the stars from the pack.....roll on Monte, can't wait it's going to be a cracker
