When St LAC member Ian Crerar isn’t on the water chances are you’ll find him behind the wheel of one form of racing car or another.
And that’s not just when the weather turns better. Ian will be participating along with a full field of 75 entrants in the kickoff to the Rally season in the French Alps that is the 2022 edition of Rallye Monte-Carlo. (Of additional interest is the inclusion of 11 Hybrid cars.) This is the second time Ian and team has participated in this event.
His competition interests stem from boats to motorcycling to all kinds of auto events. Many of you will be familiar with Ian’s VARAC entrants and, of course, his rally 911 which he’s fielded since 2019. For this event, however, he’ll be behind the wheel of a Renault Alpine.
About the Alpine Rallye car
Renault describes the Alpine as a “pure racing car, powered by a 4-cylinder turbo-charged engine that delivers over 300 bhp. It contains lots of modifications designed for rallying: revised engine torque curve, 3-way shock absorbers with hydraulic tappets, Brembo brakes, integral roll-bar and SABELT bucket seats with six-point harnesses.Its centre-mounted rear engine (ideal for weight distribution and drive), aluminium chassis and low weight form a perfect basis for versions specific to the different types of competition.”
