IRC: Double points for Cyprus again

IRC promoter Eurosport Events announces Cyprus season-finale will again be a double points' affair

The battle for Intercontinental Rally Challenge title glory is set to go down to the wire once again after IRC promoter Eurosport Events confirmed recently that double points would be awarded on the season-closing Cyprus Rally from 2-3 November.

It means that rather than being awarded 25 points for victory the event winners will receive 50 points. The full points breakdown for the top 10 eligible finishers in all categories is therefore: 50-36 30-24-20- 16-12-8-4-2.

Last year's IRC title was decided in a thrilling five-way fight for the crown on the Mediterranean island when double points were also awarded.

Meanwhile, in a change to the IRC Sporting Regulations for 2012, crews will count their best eight scores from a possible 13 (instead of seven as it was last year), while Super 2000 cars produced by a registered IRC manufacturer and powered by a 1.6- litre turbocharged engine with a 30-milimetre restrictor will be eligible for IRC points.

The 2012 IRC includes 13 rounds in total, with round one, SATA Rallye Acores, running from 23-25 February.
