Franz Wittmann is anxious to put a frustrating Intercontinental Rally Challenge season behind him and focus on 2011.

The Austrian looked sharp in the opening rounds of the 2010 edition of the IRC, but repeatedly found himself short on luck in the Interwetten Racing Peugeot 207 Super 200.

"I'm working on a programme and for sure it will be in the IRC," Wittmann said. "I am very grateful for all the support Interwetten gave to me but my results this year were very disappointing."

The 27-year-old - whose father (also Franz) won the 1987 WRC Rally New Zealand - has yet to place higher than fifth in an IRC rally, but remains hopeful that 2011 will bring better results.

"I know things can improve and I hope to get the opportunity to come back and show what I can do in what is a very competitive championship," he added.

"I'm keeping positive and won't give up."
