No heroics from IRC returnee Cronin

Keith Cronin says there will be “no heroics” when he makes his second start in the Intercontinental Rally Challenge on Barum Czech Rally Zlín tonight.

Cronin, the reigning British champion, has been handed a drive in one of the two factory PROTON Satria Neo Super 2000s on the asphalt event. He made his IRC debut on RACMSA Rally of Scotland last November.

Speaking during shakedown for the Czech rally, Cronin, from Ireland, said: “There will be no heroics from me because there are lots of things waiting to catch you out. The roads are slippery, choppy and bumpy and I can’t go making mistakes and not getting a finish.”

Cronin got behind the wheel of his works PROTON during a test in Czech Republic on Monday. “I got used to the car quite quickly although I was still getting it wrong in some corners when I got bogged down because I was driving a turbo car with lots of torque the previous weekend and that probably wasn’t the best thing to do.”
