Toni Gardemeister is searching for backing to continue his Intercontinental Rally Challenge bid with his self-run TGS Worldwide operation.

The Finn made eight appearances in his privateer Skoda Fabia Super 2000 in the IRC in 2011 but is lacking the finance to carry on following the loss of a key backer prior to Christmas.

"We are trying to find some support everywhere as we are ready for the start and finally would like to achieve our goal of podiums," said Gardemeister.

"We made a total rebuild of our Skoda and now the car is in perfect condition. We try to do our best."
