Francois Delecour has indicated that he would like to participate in more Intercontinental Rally Challenge events this year after his positive return to the sport in last month's Rallye Monte Carlo.
The 48-year-old ran as high as second in an Enjolras Sport Peugeot 207 on the second day of the event, after making the correct decision on tires as heavy snow caught out some of the more fancied runners. But the Frenchman, who ultimately finished fifth in the event, believes that he can be just as competitive on his other favorite asphalt rallies from his WRC days – Corsica and Sanremo – and is seeking to contest both in this year's IRC.
"I have to say that I was amazed by how quick the action is at the front," said Delecour. "It was faster and more competitive than even the Monte Carlo rallies I have done before in the World Championship."
"I would like to do some more, definitely," he added. "Corsica could be a good rally for me; also Sanremo – but I love going on gravel as well."
