Weijs needs funds for more IRC runs
“For now we have no sponsors”
Hans Weijs hopes that his run to third overall on the GEKO Ypres Rally last week won’t signal his last appearance in the Intercontinental Rally Challenge this season.
The 24-year-old from Netherlands had only completed a brief test in his SKODA Fabia Super 2000 before the start of the asphalt event but drove virtually without error to claim the final podium place and
secure the prestigious Colin McRae IRC Flat Out Trophy in the process.
“Of course I want to do more events in the IRC and build on this result but for now we have no sponsors and I can only do more events if I find extra budget”, said Weijs. “I’ve shown my speed here and shown what I can do so maybe sponsors will take an interest in me.”
