IRC Prime Yalta Rally preview : (...)

Juho Hanninen (Finland), Skoda Fabia S2000: “We’re expecting a big challenge on our return to the IRC but we’re very happy to be back. I will try my best to do a good result although it won’t be easy as the competition is very tough, particularly my team-mate Jan Kopecky.”

Oleksandr Saliuk Sr (Ukraine), PROTON Satria Neo S2000: “It means a great deal to me and to Evgeniy Chervonenko to compete together 20 years after we won the title in the USSR. This is a very important rally in the Ukraine and one which will attract the IRC’s fastest drivers to our beautiful part of the world. Evgeniy and I are very excited about competing with these drivers and teams in front of the home crowd.”

Guy Wilks (United Kingdom), Peugeot 207 S2000: “Following our crash in Corsica we want to get back in the car and make amends and that’s what we’ll be endeavouring to do on the Yalta Rally. It’s a new event for a lot of the IRC regulars but we need to get on top of the job.”
