Settembrini set for more IRC events

Massimiliano Settembrini will tackle three more rounds of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge in 2011 following his run to 23rd overall on Rallye Monte-Carlo last month.

Settembrini, a 41-year-old from Italy, will drive a Peugeot 207 Super 2000 for the Munaretto Power Car Team alongside co-driver and fellow Italian Corrado Bonato.

They will contest Rally Islas Canarias El Corte Ingles (14-16 April), Tour de Corse (13-15 May) and Rallye Sanremo (22-25 September).

“This is an ambitious challenge for which I wish to improve our very good overall result on Monte-Carlo,” said Settembrini. “For the upcoming rounds, we decided to limit competitions to all-asphalt rallies so to get a very good feeling with our Peugeot. I am really looking forward to taking part on the next IRC rounds being backed by such a great and professional team.”
