Kronos re-affirms IRC commitment

Marc van Dalen says Kronos Racing remain committed to the IRC
Kronos Racing insists it remains fully committed to the Intercontinental Rally Challenge for the 2012 season, despite earlier reports suggesting that it was set to switch much of its focus to developing a new car for 2013.

Speaking in a story published on the series' official newsletter, Kronos team boss Marc van Dalen had suggested that the team 'wouldn't rule out a few appearances in our 207 S2000 before we come back strongly with a new car in 2013' – with 2011 driver Thierry Neuville having inked a deal to move into the WRC with Citroen.

However, van Dalen has moved to clarify the situation regarding the team by insisting that Kronos remains focused on trying to put together a full-time IRC programme, despite team partner Peugeot Belgium-Luxembourg scaling back its involvement following Neuville's WRC graduation.

“We have cars capable of winning rallies and the personnel in place with all the experience necessary to be very successful in the IRC,” he said.

“While Peugeot Belgium-Luxembourg, with whom we maintain a very strong relationship, won't be doing as many events in 2012, Kronos is in talks with drivers and other partners about competing in the IRC with our team in 2012.”

The team is also set to run a programme in the Czech national series next year.
