IRC: Interest grows for 2012

“Interest in the IRC is as strong as it has always been and we can't wait to announce more exciting news in the coming weeks as teams and drivers complete their programmes for the year ahead...”

Intercontinental Rally Challenge bosses have reported a 'flurry of interest' from teams and drivers planning to contest the series in 2012.

Following recent news that Hermann Gassner Jr will embark on an eight-round IRC campaign with Red Bull Skoda, enquiries from several other prospective entrants have been received including from one team with extensive international experience and from a squad new to the IRC.

“Interest in the IRC is as strong as it has always been and we can't wait to announce more exciting news in the coming weeks as teams and drivers complete their programmes for the year ahead,” said Francois Ribeiro, the Motorsport Business Director of IRC promoter Eurosport Events.

The IRC covers thirteen rounds from February to November in countries throughout Europe. Round one, SATA Rallye Acores, takes place from 23-25 February.
