Delecour, who will drive a Peugeot 207 Super 2000, is making his second start in this year’s IRC having impressed in a Renault Mégane RS on Giru di Corsica-Tour de Corse in May.

"I have a very good feeling with Romania and all the fans and I am going there to win; that's the target for sure,” said the 49-year-old Frenchman.

“How realistic an objective that is, I don't know: we will only find out when we get to the stages. But I've tried to keep myself in shape and my car is very good as well: it is new and with the 2012 specification.”
