Interwetten Racing Team has to cancel the IRC-run in Belgium

Franz Wittmann/Klaus Wicha focus on top preparation for the Azores instead

Franz Wittmann and Klaus Wicha have to skip the next run to the IRC, the GEKO Ypres Rally from June 24 to 26. This wasn't an easy decision for the Interwetten Racing Team.

Wittmann: "Following the drop out in Sardinia a perfect preparation for the tarmac run in Belgium wouldn't have been possible. This has nothing to do with our Peugeot 207 S2000. A lot of factors come into play in order to successfully compete in a rally."

Therefore the focus of the 26-year-old Austrian is now on the preparation for the Rally Azores which will take place from July 15 to 17 on the westernmost archipelago of Europe.

"That is a run which we already know, which will be driven on gravel and where we celebrated a big success last year in the IRC with sixth place. Now we have one month time to recharge our batteries, leave the past behind and focus on the new challenges", explains Wittmann.
