Frederic Miclotte still aims of IRC title

Freddy Loix’s co-driver Frederic Miclotte says the BFO-SKODA Rally Team pair won’t give up on their dream of winning the Intercontinental Rally Challenge crown despite conceding they start the title showdown in Cyprus next month with a disadvantage to their rivals.

The Belgian aces did not contest the last round in Scotland earlier this month and are sixth in the IRC title race, 28 points behind leaders Jan Kopecky and Petr Stary.

“Of course it’s going to be difficult for us and we need some of the other drivers not to finish but we have to believe it’s still possible,” said Miclotte. “Missing Scotland is a disadvantage but we knew that would be the case a the start of the season. We will just do our best.”

Loix and Miclotte will undertake a one-day test in Cyprus on Sunday (30 October).
