FIA - IRC | Season - 2012 | Final Round - Cyprus Rally

The final round of the IRC season 2012 is all but 2 stages left to claim the podium spots. Nasser Al-Attiyah, the Qatari driver is leading the rally with a comfortable margin over 2 mins after Andreas suffered a puncture on SS10 and also looks slower in SS11. The Qatar driver has an advantage over the normally aspirated S2000 cars with an RRC, which is almost an WRC spec car, with minute changes in comparison to the older S2000 spec cars which will be taken off from the next season onwards.

Well the season 2013 itself is going to be with ERC and hence this is officially the last season of this wonderful series. Andreas Mikkelsen also makes a little history with winning the series twice consecutively since 2011. With all the drama and competition Mikkelsen still manages to hold on to the second with a comfortable margin of nearly 7mins above the third placed Toshi Arai in his R4 spec Subaru.

Edit:
The top 3 final results of the rally was the same for the last couple of stages. Mikkelsen's car on the last stage was driven by co-driver Ola Floene, a remembering gift for the concluding & merging IRC series into the ERC.
