Cronin Motorsport is delighted to announce that the reigning British Rally Champions will be competing on the final Round of the IRC, Rally Scotland, in a hired Abarth Grande Punto S2000. The deal has been on the table with over a week as the final details had to be worked out and it has now been confirmed that is will go ahead.
Abarth has been competitive this year and it will be exciting to see Keith and Greg out in a competitive IRC car. They will travel to Northern Italy early next week to have a testing session in the car. This is a fantastic opportunity for the lads to move a step up from the BRC and was made possible by support from Cremin Coaches, Cronin Motorsport Supporters Club and Pirelli, who have agreed to supply tyres for the event.
Speaking about the development, Keith stated that he was very excited about the prospect and that since the deal was first tabled nearly two weeks ago he has been in daily negotiations about the finer details and that he now can’t wait to drive the car. He was involved in testing a Proton Satria S2000 earlier in the year and although he did not get to actually drive that car he said that the car felt much more balanced and responsive than the Mitsubishi.
