Nasser Al-Attiyah claimed victory in the final Intercontinental Rally Challenge event as champion Andreas Mikkelsen’s gallant Cyprus Rally charge came unstuck. Mikkelsen had lost two minutes with a puncture and suspension damage on Saturday morning, but still did not give up on victory. The Skoda UK driver reduced Al-Attiyah’s lead to 1m30s by the end of leg one, despite a second puncture, and then relaunched his chase on Sunday morning

November 2nd, 2012
Andreas Mikkelsen kicked off the weekend that will see him officially crowned as the final Intercontinental Rally Challenge champion by setting the pace on stage one in Cyprus. With Skoda opting not to enter Juho Hanninen and Jan Kopecky for the season finale, reigning champion Mikkelsen’s points lead is unassailable. The Norwegian was quickest by 4.4 seconds on the Pafos street stage that kicked off the last rally in IRC history
October 12th, 2012
Giandomenico Basso dominated day one of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge’s Sanremo event. The Italian was fastest on three of Friday’s four stages, and by the end of the 44-kilometre, after-dark, Ronde test he had built a lead of 25.6 seconds
October 9th, 2012
The FIA World Motor Sport Council’s announcement that Eurosport would take over the faded European Rally Championship from 2013 marks the end of the television firm’s Intercontinental Rally Challenge, but has raised hopes of a revival for the once-great ERC.
October 9th, 2012
The European Rally Championship’s effective merger with the Intercontinental Rally Challenge will allow the ERC to recapture its halcyon days, according to organiser Eurosport. The FIA announced last month that Eurosport would become the ERC promoter for the next decade. The move means the end of Eurosport’s existing IRC series after six seasons

Dimitar Iliev clinched Rally Sliven victory as he controlled his lead over Petar Gyoshev over the Sunday morning stages that concluded the Intercontinental Rally Challenge’s Bulgarian debut. Like the preceding event in Ukraine, Sliven did not attract any of the usual IRC frontrunners, with Andreas Mikkelsen’s comfortable points lead and the ability to drop several scores meaning the championship’s top names stayed away
September 1st, 2012
Juho Hanninen emerged on top at the end of a hard-fought second day of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge’s Czech round in Zlin. Skoda has fielded all its works drivers for its home event, and Hanninen, Jan Kopecky and points leader Andreas Mikkelsen have all been involved in a constantly fluctuating lead battle that swung on tyre choices in ever-changing weather. Hanninen took the early initiative, fell back as Mikkelsen charged into the lead through the middle of the day, and then regained the top spot at the end of the day’s second of three loops
July 21st, 2012
Andreas Mikkelsen finally secured his second victory of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge season with an utterly dominant performance on the Sibiu Rally in Romania. Predictions that the event would be the IRC’s equivalent of the Acropolis and jokes that ‘Dakar set-ups’ would be required proved close to the mark, with the rally proving extremely punishing
July 7th, 2012
Giandomenico Basso denied Andreas Mikkelsen victory in a thrilling final-day showdown on Rally San Marino. Intercontinental Rally Challenge points leader Mikkelsen (Skoda UK) had looked like he might start edging away on Saturday morning, only for Basso to reel him back in. Twice the duo shared the lead on identical times, but as the decisive afternoon progressed it was the Movisport Ford of Basso that started inching ahead
July 6th, 2012
Andreas Mikkelsen leads Rally San Marino at the end of day one of the event’s debut in the Intercontinental Rally Challenge, but only by a narrow margin. This was expected to be a relatively straightforward event for Mikkelsen in the absence of the other Skoda factory drivers, yet he found himself back in third at first, behind fellow Fabia men Sepp Wiegand and Umberto Scandola
June 23rd, 2012
Juho Hanninen became only the second ever Finnish winner of the Ypres Rally with a dominant performance on his return to the Intercontinental Rally Challenge. The 2010 series champion is only contesting a limited IRC schedule this year, but added a second win of the season to his Circuit of Ireland triumph.

Gareth Roberts’ fatal crash on the Targa Florio on Saturday saw his and Craig Breen’s car penetrated by a guard rail, rally organisers have confirmed. Roberts lost his life in the accident on stage eight of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge round this morning, when the HRT Peugeot he was co-driving for World Rally Championship Academy champion Breen went off the road. Reports suggested that the crash was similar to the accident that severely injured Formula 1 driver Robert Kubica on an Italian national rally in February 2011, and this has now been confirmed by event officials.
June 16th, 2012
British co-driver Gareth Roberts has been killed in an accident on the Targa Florio Rally, round five of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge. Roberts, sharing a Peugeot 207 S2000 with Irishman Craig Breen, died when their car impacted with a guardrail on the eighth stage of the all-asphalt event, near Palermo in Sicily
June 14th, 2012
Jan Kopecky was quickest on the opening evening of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge’s maiden Targa Florio on Thursday night. The works Skoda driver had to wait until some time after the Citta di Palermo spectator stage before being elevated to his deserved rally lead. Initially Rashid Al Ketbi’s Skydive Skoda had been credited with the fastest result and a 3.3-second lead, but his time was disallowed as he had inadvertently taken the wrong route on part of the stage.

Dani Sordo scored the biggest win of his career so far by cruising to victory on his Intercontinental Rally Challenge debut in Corsica. Driving an SMG-run Mini, Sordo spent the first part of the rally in a close fight with A-Style Ford driver Giandomenico Basso and championship leader Andreas Mikkelsen (Skoda UK).
May 11th, 2012
Dani Sordo holds a comfortable lead on his Intercontinental Rally Challenge debut in Corsica at the end of day two.
May 10th, 2012
Dani Sordo will be allowed to score points on his Intercontinental Rally Challenge debut on the Tour de Corse this weekend. The Spanish WRC regular is driving an SMG Motorsport-run Mini S2000 on the Island event and was not initially a nominated point-scoring driver. However, as Mini has declared its intention to the IRC to register as an official manufacturer in the near future, the series promoter has granted the Spaniard and his co-driver Carlos del Barrio to allow the pair to score points in the drivers’ and co-drivers’ championships.

Defending Intercontinental Rally Challenge champion Andreas Mikkelsen hopes to break his asphalt rally duck on this week’s Tour de Corse.
