Round #11 from Rally Norway will be going ahead in this monday (15th November), which will also be the Opening Round of Rally Trophy - Little Christmas Cup. All IRC Drivers are invited to join Rally Trophy - Little Christmas Cup.


The Rally will be Fisherman's Ranch, 2 Laps. Luke Mitchell and Peugeot might be the International Rally Champions this round with one Round remaining! For this to happen, all he needs to do is to finish ahead of Pedro Harsk and Eric Smith. If this happens, Luke Mitchell will become the second british driver to win the International Rally Championship since 2017 (the first british driver to win overall Championship was Michael Bearpark).

Sunday Harsk has won back-to-back titles in R4 Class with two rounds remaining and equalizes Sami Saukkonen in number of titles in R4 Class. The same has happened to Troy Nettleton, as he becomes the second british driver to win Independents Cup a month after he had won International Rally Cup for Youngtimer Cars.

Catarina Alexandra is almost R2 Class Champion: All she needs is to be 33 points ahead of Troy Nettleton in Standings after Round #11 to stop Subaru from winning R2 Class. If done, she will become the first driver ever to win two R2 Class titles in a row.

The Organisation is looking forward to see you on the track for Round #11.

Good luck! :cheers:

Here it is guys, the final Round results and Official Standings.





Luke Mitchell @epic_apri_39 is 2021 International Rally Champion. After a great season where he achieved 4 wins this season, he became 2nd british driver to acheive this feat, the first doing so was Michael Bearpark in 2017. This is also the first manufacturers title for Peugeot and the second Team title for Speed Demon Motorsports.

Catarina Alexandra wins the second consecutive title in R2 Class with her Toyota GR Yaris RZ dominating the season by winning all rounds on its class;
Nuno Santos wins the 2nd consecutive R3 Class title, which is also the 3rd title of his career. He also wins International Historic Rally Cup;
Sunday Harsk wins R4 Class title for the second time in a row. His Abarth 500 won all rounds on its class!

The season has ended with Vasilis Kanaris winning the final round, becoming the 2nd Greek to achieve the victory in the final round, with the first driver doing so was Giannis Zografinis. Unfortunately, the 2020 IRC Champion, Eric Smith, wasn't able to attend the final round of the season.

The International Time Trial Cup sees a new winner: Ghost Gamer on his Tomahawk SRT-X.



With this, the 2021 International Rally Season is now finished. The Rally Organisation wants to thank all drivers for having participating in 2021 International Rally Championship season.

See you for 2022 IRC Season! :cheers:
