The Intercontinental Rally Challenge (IRC) was a rallying series organised by SRW Ltd and sanctioned by the FIA, aiming to "give new opportunities to young or amateur rally drivers competing in recognised regional and international rallies, while offering organisers an innovative TV format concept, created by Eurosport." This series focuses on Group N and Group A spec cars up to 2000cc (including Super 2000, R4, R2 and R3).
The series was born in 2006 with the name International Rally Challenge, switching in 2007 to its current name. The 2012 season will be the last season of the series. From 2013 IRC will merge with the European Rally Championship (ERC).

Famous quotes containing the words challenge and/or rally:
“She might have been old once and now, miraculously, young againbut with the memory of that other life intact. She seemed to know the world down there in the dark hall and beyond for what it was. Yet knowing, she still longed to leave this safe, sunlit place at the top of the house for the challenge there.”
—Paule Marshall (b. 1929)
“The bright old day now dawns again; the cry runs through the the land,
In England there shall be dear breadin Ireland, sword and brand;
And poverty, and ignorance, shall swell the rich and grand,
So, rally round the rulers with the gentle iron hand,
Of the fine old English Tory days;
Hail to the coming time!”
—Charles Dickens (18121870)
